Rage Spells?

Post by Balasar »

So my friend wants to have his Berserker get some cross Archetype powers, and I’m letting him take galdr instead of blacksmith since he’s really interested in it.

I’ve already told him that since you can’t use ranged weapons while raging, I’m restricting his spell casting to only adjacent targets while raging, even if the spell specifies a longer range or has a range meta.

His question is whether or not he can add the Rage damage boost to his spells. I’m kind of torn, since on the one hand there’s the classic trope of strong emotions enhancing your powers (cue anime gif), on the other hand Rage really sounds like it’s being geared toward only melee weapons. Thoughts?

Even though I’m allowing a multiclass option that isn’t provided by the book, the same question would be applicable to a Berserkir/Druid or Ulfhednar/Galdr.

I wouldn't add Rage boosts "as written" to spells. I would maybe grant him +1 Focus per Rage intensity.

Would that be per spell, or per round?
