Weapon Proficiencies:

  • Club

Special Powers:

  • Half-orc infravision enables them to discern gradients of heat within 60 feet in darkness.
  • All warriors gain the ability to make more than one melee attack per round as they rise in level. At 7th level, they can make 3 attacks every 2 rounds.
  • When engaged with large numbers of weak enemies (less than 1 HD each), the warrior gains double his normal number of attacks per round (including doubling attacks with off-hand weapons).
  • Home Terrain: Desert. A barbarian can move with such stealth in his homeland terrain that opponents suffer a -2 penalty to their surprise die rolls. To move stealthily, the barbarian must be alone, or his party must consist entirely of barbarians, elves, or halflings (or similar characters with the ability to impose surprise penalties), none of whom are wearing metal armor.
  • Leaping and Springing: The barbarian is skilled at making leaps (horizontal jumps) and springs (vertical jumps). To make a running leap or spring, he must have a running start of at
    least 20 feet in a straight line; less than this, and the best he can do is a standing leap or spring. Standing leaps and springs are made from stationary positions.
    The Table indicates the horizontal distances (for leaps) and vertical distances (for springs) for barbarian fighters of various levels. Distances are expressed in feet. Roll the die separately for each leap or spring. Characters with exceptional Muscle scores add their damage bonus to the distance rolled.
Jump Type Distance (in feet)
Running Leap 3d8+8
Standing Leap 1d8+4
Running Spring 2d6+4
Standing Spring 1d6+1
  • Because of their familiarity with creatures from the Elemental Plane of Air, Calishites gain a +1 bonus on all saving throws versus attacks from such creatures. This same bonus also applies to all spells cast against them from the Elemental Air school or sphere.
  • Because of the Brute’s sharp senses, he receives a +2 bonus on his surprise rolls.
  • The Brute’s coarse hair, thick skin, and dense bones give him a natural armor class bonus of +4. As with other natural armor bonuses, wearing armor of equal or lesser value only increases this bonus by +1.
  • When fighting without weapons, the brute can propel himself into a frenzy—biting, punching, kicking, and scratching at an opponent. This assault counts as a single attack, dealing 1d6 points of damage (plus the Brute’s Muscle bonus). This does not stack with normal Punching or Wrestling attacks.
  • A Brute can trail a creature by scent, presuming the quarry made the trail within the previous 24 hours. The Brute must be familiar with the quarry, or must have a sample of the scent. He has the same change to follow that trail as if he had the Tracking proficiency, but ignores all modifiers for terrain. If the Brute also has the Tracking proficiency he gains a +2 bonus on his checks to track by scent. A Brute can also identify a particular character or creature by its lingering aroma by making a successful Intuition check.

Penalties:

  • A Brute may never take the Ancient Languages, Modern Languages, or Literacy proficiencies.
  • A Brute cannot use any magical item that requires a command word or concentration to activate. He may use magical potions, weapons, armor, or worn items without penalty (so long as their effects are constant).
  • The ego of the Calishite is his prime disadvantage. In fact, it is an inevitability for a Calishite, no matter how careful he is, to offend a foreigner. When dealing with non-Calishites, the Barbarian has a -6 NPC reaction penalty due to his arrogance, peculiar appearance, and mannerisms.
  • Because of their ties with the Elemental Plane of Air, Calishites suffer a -1 on all saving throws from spells in the Elemental Earth school or sphere. Attacks made by creatures native to the Elemental Plane of Earth are made with a +1 bonus versus such wizards.

Advancement Notes

  • Armor Allowed: Non-Metal Armor, Shields
  • Weapons Allowed: Axe (any), Celt, Club, Dagger, Knife, Spear
  • +1 Weapon and Non-weapon proficiency slots per 3 Barbarian levels
  • Single-classed half-orcs with exceptional ability scores are able to advance nearly as high as their human forebears. A single classed half-orc adds double the normal number of additional levels to his racial maximum (thus a half-orc fighter with a Strength of 20 could potentially reach 20th level).
  • A barbarian of 9th level who has been awarded property is eligible to receive followers. Usually, the followers must be natives of the barbarian’s homeland, race, and tribe.

Equipment:

  • Shapeshifting Chest Tattoo (can look like any tattoo the wearer wants, change at will, black ink only)
  • Rampaging Axe (7 lbs)
  • Great Club of Heeling (12 lbs. — comes when called, slides along ground at MV 6)
