Brutes (Five Factions Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
The Brutes are a savage race, built on combat prowess. They are surprisingly peaceful - until they are in an argument, then they will fight for who is right, as is there way. Most of them worship Grack, God of Strength, or Myev, Goddess of Endurance, though there aren't many overly religious characters - other than the war clerics, the ones that lead their armies into battle.
The Brutes are savage, they kill to live and they don't ally with people unless it benefits themselves.
The Brutes don't have any rules, they base power on strength. If you can beat the other person your way is correct.
Most of the Brutes don't practice magic and those of the Brutes that do use magic are usually part of the Brutes military force and often co-operate with a mages guild that spans over multiple of the other factions (the Brutes don't have their own magical society). A common tactic for brutes is to remove the magic users from the battle - making an "even" battlefield. The magic users that are in the army usually support the warriors - but only once they need it. It is rare to see a magic user from the Brutes military cast a spell unless needed - doing this they also developed greater physical strength than their counterparts from the other factions and will usually participate in melee combat. They can give quite a "shock" to the enemy!
