Brewmasters are study tanks who sustain themselves by drinking their brews. Gaining a number of buffs through their draughts, brewmasters are highly effective brawlers that can handle groups of enemies at the same time.
Instead of taking immediate physical damage, you shrug off attacks, delaying their effects. At the end of each round calculate the total damage and absorb it as a DoT over D4 rounds. Magic attacks do not apply and are resolved normally.
Your damage weakens the target. Attacking the same opponent consecutively grants a 10% bonus after the first attack.
Each time you are struck in melee it increases your next dodge roll by D4.
While above 50% health you gain a 50% movement bonus. While below 50% health you regenerate D6 health per turn.
Sacrifice your movement and free actions to drink a second brew this round.
Sacrifice your three brew cooldowns this fight and roll an extra D6 worth of damage on all attacks.
Any enemies covered in brew may be set on fire for D4 damage over D4 turns.
Gift of the Ox:
You have a 10% bonus to your maximum HP while in combat. This also applies to your negative hp death status.
Gain 50% movement bonus and roll around inside an unstoppable keg. Knock away any enemies you come into contact with. You may not take additional actions while inside the keg, however you are unstoppable.
These are each usable once per fight.

Breath of Fire:
Take a draught of brew and sprew it out, while lighting it on fire. Spray all enemies in a 5 yard cone in front of you for D6 fire damage. They do not take damage over time unless they are already covered in brew, in which case they alight for D4 damage over D4 turns.
