Primeval Thule: Katagian Pit Fighter for D&D 5th Edition

Backgrounds here are bases on the Narratives in Primeval Thule, so they will gain abilities as a character levels.  They are only intended for use in the Primeval Thule setting and are not designed to be mixed with standard Backgrounds.

Also, some of the abilities require the expenditure of a resource, for this reason and for how dangerous the setting is, each character gains the Lucky Feat for free and may take the Lucky Feat one additional time.

Area of Proficiency (1st level): You are proficient in Deception.

Langauges (1st level): One of your choice.

Tools (1st level): One of your choice.

Pugilism (1st level): Enemies have disadvantage when they try to grapple you.

Resuscitating Action  (Level 1):  You can’t be kept down for long. You can spend a Luck point to heal hit points equal to your level when you start your turn at or below 0 hit points. After you’ve used this ability, you can’t use it again until you’ve had a short or long rest.

Pugilist's Knack(6th level): You gain advantage when you take the grapple action.
Optionally this is a feat and can only be taken if you have this background and are at least 4th level, additionally gain +1 to Strength.

Expert Trainer (10th level): You’ve started to attract thugs and would-be gladiators who want to fight like you do, gaining you followers.
