Furious Rage flaw


Mythic Adventures Playtest General Discussion


Does the furious rage flaw cancel out a Barbarians rage?

For example...

Barbarian is raging, and then gets hit with a crit, triggering his furious rage mythic flaw. Does the furious rage completely override the existing rage, removing any bonuses, or does it instead "stack", giving another -2 AC and the inhibited skill use?


I understood that it only grants the penalties of raging and if you have rage you can use it normally. The penalties would stack with rage becuase it functions as the spell, not the class feature.

Humbly,
Yawar


Furious Rage: Whenever you are demoralized by the
Intimidate skill or hit by a critical hit, you go into an
uncontrollable rage. This functions like the barbarian’s
rage class feature
, but you do not gain a bonus to your
Strength or Constitution score (even if you have the rage
class feature). This limits the actions you can perform and
gives you a penalty to your Armor Class. The rage lasts for
1d4 rounds plus a number of rounds equal to your mythic
tier, but you are not fatigued after this duration expires.

Doesn't function as the spell...

Looks to me like Intimidate plus high threats are how you control a mythic barbarian. One set of penalties, no bonuses. Makes sense right: that characters loses control and flies off the handle uselessly. That way barbarians don;t take it for essentially No Flaw.

It's still "no flaw" for barbarians. Sure, they take the penalties, but it's not like a mythic barbarian really needs the Str/Con bonuses anyways.

What it does is give a barbarian a free rage, during which they can use all of their rage abilities, and after which they're not fatigued. This definitely falls into the "barely a flaw" category.
