Celestial Totems.

Good idea or bad?

Celestial Totem
Prerequisites: Barbarian 6, lesser celestial totem rage power, cannot be evil.
Benefit: While raging, the barbarian is surrounded by a shinning white light. Each round, any enemy with the evil subtype that is adjacent to the barbarian must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 the barbarian’s level + the barbarian’s Charisma modifier) or be blinded for 1 round (a successful save negates this effect).

Celestial Totem, Greater
Prerequisites: Barbarian 10, celestial totem rage power, cannot be evil.
Benefit: While raging, any enemy adjacent to the barbarian with the evil subtype takes 1d8 points of holy damage. In addition, the shinning white light can now blind foes with the evil subtype that is up to 15 feet away from the barbarian. Furthermore, evil dragons, undead, and outsiders with the evil subtype are blinded for 1d2 rounds upon a failed save instead of 1 round.

Celestial Totem, Lesser
Prerequisites: Barbarian 4, cannot be evil.
Benefit: While raging, the barbarian gains resistance to negative energy equal to ½ the barbarian’s level (minimum 1).


Good idea, but feel this should be focused on Azata instead of just the general Celestial, because Archons are celestials that most certainly would not have totems available for barbarians.

Maybe as a class archetype that represents a reclusive civilization that worships the Azata as a spiritual ideal, and their barbarian warriors channel the power of the Azata?

Celestial Totem is very, very good.

Celestial Totem Lesser is pretty weak.

Celestial Totem, Greater is really strong too.

I love the idea of a celestial totem, but I think this needs a bit more work.

Okay, any recommendations Cheapy?


I'd say make "lesser" the Barbarian's full level instead of half.


Agathion are a good choice for an animal-revering barbaric clan, too.
