    My only change would be a name change. Usually the path refers to what the barbarian actually is, not what he’s similar to.

    Love this subclass, but I would personally change the "call the hunt" ability a tad, barbarians don't really need more hp, even if it's temporary. Especially if they also have the tough feat. I'd make the creatures you affect gain temporary hit points instead, this will also let them use reckless more confidently (which would eat up those temp hit points way faster without barbarian resistance) and you can flavour that as them going into a half rage/beast because of your power. Since this is stronger I would make it once per short rest. Either that or 9th level conjure animals similar to shepherd druid, like you're calling upon the hunt to aid you, and make it a once per long rest ability. Lastly, for anyone wanting to build the class up more, giving them the ability to wildshape or polymorph into a limited selection of beasts would make this perfect. Though it probably isn't necessary, and wouldn't be the most use in later levels, but it oozes flavour. Like, for a werewolf themed character, dog - wolf - dire wolf - Winter wolf This could be a number of times equal to CON mod per long rest, with the final creature (winter wolf in this case) costing two uses. A bear theme could end with owlbear, cat theme could end with displacer beast, etc. There's tonnes of CR3 stuff available for whatever theme you want. But it does have totem bear resistance to contend with, so I feel like giving this subclass cooler and more impactful late level abilities will help a non-bear totem barb from feeling like they are missing out, since totem barbs also have the option of going beast-like due to the totems.

    I was already fawning over the new content, and hearing Todd talk about it. Then I heard (from my perch in the UA Document in another tab) Jim's voice and went "Wait, is that JIM FROM WEBDM?!"

    Path of the Beast is, perhaps, my number 1 pick for a new Barbarian Archetype. Like Todd said, the flavor is OOZING and the mechanics are solid as well. Whenever I play as a Barbarian, I like to find ways to use unarmed strikes or natural weapons, just because I love that up-in-your-face style of combat as a Barbarian. I've come up with so many character ideas already just based on my first reading alone, INCLUDING the "bats bats bats bats bats" thing that Todd mentions at the end! Give me my Triton sharkbarian, my Shifter beastborn, my Dwarven badger, my Lizardfolk adapting to combat, all of it! With the Lizardfolk in particular, since they already have claws, fangs, and a tail, I love the idea of supercharging yourself with primal energy to enhance those natural features. You grow an extra set of teeth, spikes erupt from your tail, which suddenly grows longer and thicker, etc. I'm ready for this to be printed, is what I'm saying! :D

    Ideas I've had about each of these: 1) Beast Barbarian: Warriors that don the pelts of beasts and ornate masks, in order to evoke Sympathetic Magic to assume their powers in battle. Whether through the Rule of Similarity or even calling an animal spirit to ride them, the warrior powers aren't necessarily innate, but LEARNED. This model of Barbarian, incidentally, also works for Path of the Totem; a single culture might produce Barbarians of both kinds, fighting side by side. 2) Mercy Monk: If anyone is familiar with Mage: The Ascension, this subclass is a dead ringer for the Euthanatos tradition. Martial artists, mystics, and healers who tend to those who can be saved, and give the "Good Death" to those who cannot. These include those who suffer and cannot heal, and those who are wicked and will not change. They end life when necessary, to minimize damage to the world, and to allow the souls of those they kill to move on to their next incarnation. Preoccupied with the proper turning of the Wheel of life, death, rebirth, and fate, they also seek to destroy undead or help them move on, so as to free them to continue their journey around said Wheel. (As an aside, given the long and difficult history between the Euthanatoi and the Akashic Brotherhood, I'm now imagining feuding sects of Monks. One side are Mercy, the other Open Palm. Could be a neat backdrop element in a campaign.) 3) Watcher Paladin: Say a rift opens up on a world in the Prime Material Plane, that connects to some other plane. _Things_ keep coming through. The inhabitants of the realm form an order of knights, devoted to guarding the gateway, stopping anything from getting in, and sending missions into the realm for various purposes. An entire group of Watcher Paladins (among other classes, like Horizon Walker Rangers), keeping vigil over this rend in space. Whenever someone returns from the breach, they are taken into interrogation rooms and subjected to an exhaustive list of questions, all under a Zone of Truth. Questions meant to catch and entrap would-be shapeshifters, spies, possessing entities, and traitors who made pacts with otherworldly powers. Some watchers have been fighting here so long - over so many consecutive generations - exposure to planar magic and the blood of its inhabitants has changed these people. Many are Tieflings, or Genasi, or Elves (including Eladren or Shadir-Kai), or are Sorcerers with Wild Magic or Aberrant Minds or the like. 4) Noble Genie Warlock: This one has a number of small ideas for characters, so it's hard to choose without getting really specific. For just one idea, though, is that of a character from a Noble background, whose nobility was granted to their ancestor by a genie. Think Aladdin, but he committed to being Prince Ali. And that ancestor's descendants have been working off that debt ever since.

    A Longtooth Shifter barbarian on the Path of the Beast would be a force to be reckoned with. Like this beast could potentially dish out 4 attacks at level 5, 3 claw attacks and bite attack as a bonus action, straight mauling fools on the battlefield like a feral badass. Anyway i am just happy that we might finally get feral and bestial barbarian subclass that focuses on unarmed combat, finally i might be able to play concepts based on more feral characters like Wolverine or Blanka raw.

    Working out a Noble Genie Warlock / Sword Bard multiclass... The idea is that a djinn (or efreeti), travels to the Material Plane as a distraction, and witnesses a bard performing. Amused by this bard, they reach out to them, disguised as a mortal, and offer to be their personal performer, offering your typical wealth & power. It is only after the "deal" is done, that the bard realizes the ramifications of their employment, as their patron reveals their elemental grandeur. It is only by the bard's hasty persuasion skills that he is able to avoid permanent enslavement, instead offering to travel the world, occasionally offering treasure or stories of their travel to satisfy the patron's whims. Thinking of having the "vessel" be a decorative manacle or wristguard...one that links out an identical manacle to a party member to serve as their tether feature. If djinn (seems the most benevolent option), the tether sparks with electricity. Thinking that the Eldritch Invocation that lets you push opponents around with Eldritch Blast makes for a good tactic...being that you can fire a beam or two yourself, push an enemy, and THEN have your tethered ally blast them around, too. Really lets you play with the environment.

    I hope we are able to get a druid influenced by astrology and celestial bodies. Kind of like Augra from the Dark Crystal series. A gentleman monk who uses Bartitsu would be cool as well. A bard who does Cartomancy or uses Tarot Cards kind of like the Huckster from Deadlands would be a sweet archetype or maybe like a stereotypical gypsy character. Just some character itches I want. And maybe some sort of portal manipulating class, where the portals work like in the Portal game.

    It's been some time now that fantasy _seems,_ at least to my eyes, to be favoring small groups of individuals over institutions, regardless of whether the tone ends up very bleak, more optimistic, or somewhere along the middle. There aren't really as many organized segregations, like Hogwarts Houses, Olympian Cottages and whatnot - it's about a small group of friends (or a family) trying to support each other. I see it in books, I see it in D&D, I see it in shows...
