Monstrous Physique — Link (PF2E)

Hey, there. Luis, here! I’ve spent the last few weeks teasing the upcoming release of Valiant (which is out now, by the way) and haven’t had a chance to provide anything on Monstrous Physique for a while. With the return of this blog, I wanted to present another valiant hero. The first hero that came to mind is the living embodiment of courage, so much so that he literally carries a sign of courage on his hand. I’m statting up the Hero of Time and bearer of the Triforce of Courage, Link! Let’s have a look!

Ranged [one-action] hero’s bow +15 (deadly d10, range increment 60 feet), Damage 2d6+8 piercing
Gale Boomerang [two-actions] Link throws a boomerang infused with the power of wind. He makes a ranged boomerang Strike with a +15 bonus against a target within 30 feet. On a hit, the target takes 2d4+7 bludgeoning damage and is pushed back 10 feet (20 feet on a critical hit).
Remote Bomb [one-action] Link throws a magical bomb into a space within 30 feet. The bomb does not explode immediately. Instead, Link can remotely detonate the bomb with an action, which has the concentrate trait. Otherwise, the bomb detonates automatically at the end of Link’s next turn. All creature’s within the bomb’s space and adjacent to the bomb take 4d6 fire damage (DC 21 basic Reflex save).
Spin Attack [three-actions] (flourish) Link spins, attacking all nearby creatures with his sword. Link makes a Master Sword Strike against all creatures within reach. Link’s multiple attack penalty does not increase until he makes all of his Strikes that are part of Spin Attack.

Link, the Hero of Time, is a warrior destined to save the land of Hyrule time and time again. Link wields the Master Sword, a legendary blade that slays evil, and a fragment of the Triforce, a powerful relic left behind by the goddesses of the world. Link bears an unbreakable spirit and is willing to push himself to the brink of death to help others and bring an end to evil. He uses a number of various tools and weapons in his quest to defeat evil. As the Hero of Time, Link has had multiple incarnations throughout history, each of them a courageous figure willing to stand for what’s right.

That’s it for this week! If you end up introducing Link into your game or you have any request for a future Monstrous Physique, please drop me a line at
