Battle Surgeon


Trained Physician

When you use a healer's kit on a creature with 0 hit points they regain one hit point.  You gain proficiency in medicine, if you were already proficient you may add double your proficiency modifier to medicine checks, medicine is an intelligence skill for you.  You may craft a healer’s kit over the course of three hours from available materials.

Surgeon’s Slice

You know exactly how to use every wound to your advantage, choosing precise locations to cripple opponents rather than just slashing away wildly.  You can reduce the damage of each of your blows to do a special maneuver, trading brutality for precision.  Only one surgical maneuver can be used during the attack action.

You learn two of your choice at third level.  Your maneuver save is equal to 8+ Your Proficiency Modifier + Your Intelligence Modifier.

Autopsy

Starting at 7th level your wounds are far more likely to be critically damaging due to your advanced knowledge of anatomy.  When you have advantage you critically strike on a 19 or 20.  Additionally you may spend 30 minutes performing an autopsy on a corpse, discovering approximate time of death, cause of death, and what damage occurred to the body post mortem.  This ability fails if the corpse is 10 days old in a normal environment, 30 days old in a frozen environment, and 5 days old in a particularly warm and wet environment.

 

Restart the Heart

At 10th level you learn an additional 2 surgical maneuvers.  Additionally you may expend a usage of a medical kit to attempt to revive a creature that has been dead for less than one minute.  Over the course of three rounds use your action to make a medicine check with a dc of 20. At the end of the three checks one of three things happen: if you succeed three times the target awakens with one hit point, if you succeed twice the target awakens after 3d4 hours, and if you succeed once or not at all the creature dies.  You are considered prone and can not move while attempting a revival.  A dm can rule that a body is mangled beyond saving.

Perfect Incision

Starting at 15th level all of your attacks deal more damage due to your surgical precision.  Your attacks now deal additional damage equal to your intelligence modifier.  Your attacks also always deal 7 damage if they would ever deal less. 

Amputate

At 18th level you learn the ultimate surgical maneuver- if you deal 18 damage with a single attack you may choose to deal no damage and remove an arm or leg from large or smaller creature.  The cut is clean and the target suffers no effects of bleeding due to your perfect cut.   You also learn one last surgical maneuver of your choice.

Cause Temporary Leg Paralysis

Pierce a Pressure Point
