 Making a Mind Barbarian
|This section needs a more complete description. For more information please look here|
The strongest points of the Mind Barbarian are his amazing ability to dish out and withstand damage. He is also gifted in the arts of mental warfare and can enter the mind of his enemies during combat. His one down side is that he wears very little armor and probably his biggest negative factor, Mind Barbarians are prohibited from using any weapons other than there natural ones. In a party the Mind Barbarian acts as a hulking beast in front of the weaker members absorbing all the damage and dishing most of it out.
Abilities: Strength is the number one attribute of the Mind Barbarian. Strength improves there damage due to there lack of weapons, and aids with many of there class skills and powers. High wisdom scores are desirable for there benefits with his mind powers and class skills. Finally a good dexterity and constitution score helps greatly due to the Mind Barbarians lack of armor and his tendency to take all the hits in a battle.
Races: This class is rare among almost all races. Its mental abilities steer it away from some of the monstrous humanoids but its savage combat abilities keep it from the common races. The most likely races to be found taking this class include minotaurs, ogre mages, and sometimes even humans or half orcs. It is possible for a dwarf to take this class but any of the more majestic races (i.e elves, gnomes, fairies, etc.) are strictly prohibited from taking this class .
Alignment: Any non-lawful.
