Bar Brawler The barkeep has been in enough bar fights to know how to throw a few punches. When fighting in their bar and making a nonlethal attack, the barkeep gains a +1 circumstance bonus to attack rolls and deals an additional 1d4 damage.

Barkeep’s Advice [three-actions] (auditory, fortune, linguistic, mental) Frequency once per day; Effect The barkeep gives some pertinent advice to a single creature other than themself. For 24 hours, when that creature fails a skill check or saving throw, they can recall this advice and reroll the check, using the second result instead. Once that creature uses this ability, its effect ends. A creature that receives the Barkeep’s Advice is temporarily immune to the ability for 1 month.


Barkeeps are often friends and mentors within a community, lending an ear while supplying libations. The best barkeeps have some talent for storytelling and passing on valuable advice.
