Far from civilization, sharp toothed barbarians survive on the flesh of their enemies.

Waste not, want not. -Proverb

While not evil per se, your acts of consumption would be shunned by most. To adventure as a Cannibal, you have learned to hide your customs from commoners but partake openly in front of enemies and trusted allies.

All Consuming Rage[edit]

Starting at 3rd level, during rage, when you reduce a hostile opponent to 0 hit points, you gain temporary hit points equal your Constitution modifier + the sum of damage from the killing blow (minimum of 1).

Biting Rebuke[edit]

At 6th level, while in rage you can make a bite attack as a free reaction when struck in melee by an opponent. This attack deals 1d6 + Strength modifier damage, and on a hit the opponent must succeed on a wisdom save DC 16 or be frightened, they may retest at the beginning of their next turn to overcome the frightened condition.

Heart of Enemies[edit]

Beginning at 10th level, by consuming a heart of a humanoid you have participated in slaying within the past hour, you regain your full hit points as if finishing a long rest. You must finish a long rest to regain use of this feature.

Spirit of the Slain[edit]

At 14th level, by channeling the spirits of those you have eaten, you deal double crit damage on your next crit. You can only do this a number of times each day equal to the number of enemies hearts you have eaten in the past 24 hours, and only once per turn.
