Barbarian Revisions
(Marcus Daggersmith of Far Woods)

INTRODUCTION
The Barbarian class seems to me to be a mismatched combination of a fighting class with a monster sub-race of humans. So described in this text are these two aspects of the Barbarian split in half: a class called the Berserker and a monster race called the Savage.
Essentially, the Berserker is the elite combat-intensive fighter (but is not barred from enchantments), and the Savage is a primitive humanoid race which doesn't think much of magic, relying instead on nature.
Note here that there are no abilities or immunities possessed except what is explicitly stated and that any Barbarian-like abilities listed below are most likely identical to them.
