I miss the old days of 4e where a fighter could interrupt attacks on other people. Let’s make that happen!
Each round as a free action you can choose one creature you are engaged with. If any creature targets your chosen creature with an attack and you are engaged with the attacker, as a reaction you can make an attack on the attacker.
Let’s walk through all the fighter types!
You are a wall for those under your protection. You gain the following benefit:
- Increase your Strength or Constitution by one, to a maximum of 20.
- When you use your protection ability, increase the AC of the target by 1d4.
Some love for the fighter today with a new fighting style.
You gain an extra reaction each round.
How about a class feature for DnD 5e! Here is a fighting style for your Fighters and Rangers.
When you are wielding a melee weapon in one hand and no other weapons, you gain a +2 bonus to attack rolls with that weapon.
Let’s splash some solarian into the solider in Starfinder

Some people at a recent game were made because they couldn’t fight with two weapons at once when doing an opportunity attack. Let’s fix that for a fighter with a fighting style!
While you make an opportunity attack, you may make an attack with your off hand weapons following all the rules for two-weapon fighting.
The designers of DnD didn’t want to use shields to shield bash. I DO! Let’s make that happen a different way!
When you have a shield in your off hand, you can use it as a weapon as if you were performing two weapon fighting. You do not get to normally add your Strength bonus to damage when you use this ability unless another ability would allow you to. A regular shield does 1d6 bludgeoning damage on an attack and you are considered proficient with the weapon if you have this ability.
How about a fighter’s fighting style that works like the previous feat?
When you start your turn engaged with any number of enemies, you can disengaged as a bonus action.
What happens when you don’t want to be a monk, but you also don’t want to be sword fighter? What if you don’t want to use feats or multiclassing to make that happen…
Instead of attacking with a weapon, you my choose to attack with your body instead. You count as proficient with any strikes made with your own body and use damage equal to a monk of your level. Much like attacking with two weapons, you can make an additional strike, but you do not add your Strength or Dexterity modifier to the second strike.
If you can thing through your actions, you can also throw caution to the wind!
When you take the attack action, you can forgo your reaction for this round,from the start of this turn until the start of your next turn, to instead gain an extra attack as part of this action. You add all modifiers to the attack and it’s damage as normal.
