"If swords ever cross, the Barbarian
shall be the one left standing."-
Guild Leader Agonar
Barbarian's life is a simple one, but not an easy one.
The field of combat is our crib; the blood of foes is
mother's milk to us. Stand with us, and flesh your sleepless
sword in training in the field. Live with us, and steel
your mind against the taint of Magic's aid. Die with
us, and drive your body to a warrior's dogged end while
those of lesser mettle cower at inglorious range!
Inner Fire is the measure both of rage and of control,
and the substance of Barbarian heart and guts; in purity,
it fuels the bloodlust of the battle-hardened and stills
the mind of the meditator. But be wary - the taint of
magic will disrupt this fragile balance of body and
soul, so leave the mana-meddling to those who lean on
magic as a crutch!
A smattering of Survival
skills are required and useful to know, particularly
defensive skills such as Evasion.
A berserking Barbarian is able to push through physical
pain and increase his/her strength and stamina. The
barbarian could literally die on his/her feet when the
battle rage wears off.
A barbarian is able to strike fear into his/her opponent
and inspire his/her allies through sheer projection
of his/her roars and presence. At higher levels a roaring
barbarian is able to drive others into a natural state
As barbarians gain greater levels of experience and
awareness, they are able to seek out the legendary pit
masters who are located all over Elanthia, and learn
various battle dances which train the barbarian to hone
their strengths to levels not normally achievable, creating
an unstoppable force in one person.
The driving force in every barbarian - that which is
alive in all, but strong in few. A barbarian's Inner
Fire is the source of his/her tremendous courage and
strength, as well as resistance to magic. Too much exposure
to certain types of magic may weaken the Inner Fire
for a time.
A barbarian's inherent understanding of weapons makes
him or her a natural at the forge. Anyone can forge
a crude weapon, but only barbarians can produce legendary
quality weapons sought after by all.
