Furious at her small stature, the meowsterful rager seeks imaginary revenge on any who lord over her.
The meowsterful rager is an archetype of the beastmaster class, available only to palico beastmasters.
Rage Forms (Ex)
At 1st level, a meowsterful rager must select the meowsterful rage form.
Meowsterful Rage (Ex)
When a meowsterful rager enters a rage, she channels her frustration and hatred towards larger creatures. While in a rage, she gains a +3 bonus on attack rolls and damage rolls against creatures bigger than herself. Against creatures bigger than herself, the meowsterful rager’s critical multiplier for damage increases by 1 (a ×2 multiplier becomes ×3, a ×3 multiplier becomes ×4, and a ×4 multiplier becomes ×5). This critical multiplier increase does not stack with other effects which increase critical multipliers.
Greater Meowsterful Rage (Ex): At 11th level, a meowsterful rager’s bonus on attack rolls and damage rolls against larger creatures increases to +4.
Mighty Meowsterful Rage (Ex): At 20th level, a meowsterful rager’s bonus on attack rolls and damage rolls against larger creatures increases to +5.
This ability replaces the rage forms gained at 1st, 10th, and 20th levels.
Combat Leverage (Ex)
At 3rd level, a meowsterful rager learns to leverage her small weight to great effect. She may make combat maneuvers on any larger creature, regardless of the size difference between her and the target. She gains a +1 bonus on Acrobatics, Escape Artist, and all combat maneuver attempts against creatures at least one size category larger than herself. This bonus increases by 1 for every three beastmaster levels after 3rd.
This ability replaces alertness.
Ankle Tangler (Ex)
At 4th level, a meowsterful rager can move through the space of a creature two size categories larger than herself without needing to attempt an Acrobatics check. She would still need to succeed at Acrobatics checks to avoid attacks of opportunity provoked by leaving a threatened space; this ability covers only the ability to move. Additionally, whenever the meowsterful rager scores a critical hit on a larger foe with a melee attack, she can choose to make a trip combat maneuver as a swift action.
This ability replaces a rage power gained at 4th level.
Inside Arm’s Reach (Ex)
At 8th level, a meowsterful rager does not provoke attacks of opportunity from a creature when in the creature’s space.
This ability replaces scent.
