A horde of Chaos Marauders.

For some, there is only rage.  In the ways of their people, in the fury of their passion, in the howl of battle, conflict is all these brutal souls know.  Savages, hired muscle, masters of vicious martial techniques, they are not soldiers or professional warriors - they are the battle possessed, creatures of slaughter and spirits of war.  Known as barbarians, these warmongers know little of training, preparation, or the rules of warfare; for them, only the moment exists, with the foes that stand before them and the knowledge that the next moment might hold their death.  They possess a sixth sense in regard to danger and the endurance to weather all that might entail.  These brutal warriors might rise from all walks of life, both civilized and savage, though whole societies embracing such philosophies roam the wild places of the world.  Within barbarians storms the primal spirit of battle, and woe to those who face their rage.

Amiri, a female Barbarian.

In the mist-shrouded fens of Albion, they are known as Woad Raiders.  In Norsca and the Chaos Wastes beyond, they are the fearsome and merciless Marauders.  They rarely hail from the civilized lands of Bretonnia or the Empire, but some make rare appearances in the lands of the Border Princes.

Role:  Barbarians excel in combat, possessing the martial prowess and fortitude to take on foes seemingly far superior to themselves.  With rage granting them boldness and daring beyond that of most other warriors, barbarians charge furiously into battle and ruin all who would stand in their way.

Alignment:  Any nonlawful.

Class Features

All of the following are class features of the barbarian.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency:  A barbarian is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields).
Fast Movement (Ex):  A barbarian's land speed is faster than the norm for her race by +10 feet.  This benefit applies only when she is wearing no armor, light armor, or medium armor, and not carrying a heavy load.  Apply this bonus before modifying the barbarian's speed because of any load carried or armor worn.  This bonus stacks with any other bonuses to the barbarian's land speed.
Rage (Ex):  A barbarian can call upon inner reserves of strength and ferocity, granting her additional combat prowess.  Starting at 1st level, a barbarian can rage for a number of rounds per day equal to 4 + her Constitution modifier.  At each level after 1st, she can rage for 2 additional rounds.  Temporary increases to Constitution, such as those gained from rage and spells like Bear's Endurance, do not increase the total number of rounds that a barbarian can rage per day.  A barbarian can enter rage as a free action.  The total number of rounds of rager per day is renewed after resting for 8 hours, although these hours do not need to be consecutive.
While in rage, a barbarian gains a +4 morale bonus to her Strength and Constitution, as well as a +2 morale bonus on Will saves.  In addition, she takes a -2 penalty to Armor Class.  The increase to Constitution grants the barbarian 2 hit points per Hit Dice, but these disappear when the rage ends and are not lost first like temporary hit points.  While in rage, a barbarian cannot use any Charisma-, Dexterity-, or Intelligence-based skills (except Acrobatics, Fly, Intimidate, and Ride) or any ability that requires patience or concentration.
A barbarian can end her rage as a free action and is fatigued after rage for a number of rounds equal to 2 times the number of rounds spent in the rage.  A barbarian cannot enter a new rage while fatigued or exhausted but can otherwise enter rage multiple times during a single encounter or combat.  If a barbarian falls unconscious, her rage immediately ends, placing her in peril of death.
Rage Powers (Ex):  As a barbarian gains levels, she learns to use her rage in new ways.  Starting at 2nd level, a barbarian gains a rage power.  She gains another rage power for every two levels of barbarian attained after 2nd level.  A barbarian gains the benefits of rage powers only while raging, and some of these powers requrie the barbarian to take an action first.  Unless otherwise noted, a barbarian cannot select an individual power more than once.  Totem rage powers grant powers in a theme.  A barbarian cannot select from more than one group of totem rage powers.  For example, a barbarian that selects a beast totem rage power cannot later choose to gain any of the spirit totem rage powers.
Animal Fury (Ex):  While raging, the barbarian gains a bite attack.  If used as part of a full attack action, the bite attack is made at the barbarian's full base attack bonus -5.  If the bite hits, it deals 1D4 points of damage (assuming the barbarian is Medium; 1D3 points of damage if Small) plus half the barbarian's Strength modifier.  A barbarian can make a bite attack as part of the action to maintain or break free from a grapple.  this attack is resolved before the grapple check is made.  If the bite attack hits, any grapple checks made by the barbarian against the target this round are at a +2 bonus.  PRG:CRB
Auspicious Mark (Su):  The barbarian has been marked by the spirits, as indicated by an impressive tattoo, scar, or birthmark she possesses.  Once per rage, as a swift action that costs 2 rounds of rage, the barbarian can call upon the spirits' favor.  Using auspicious mark grants her a +1D6 bonus on one D20 roll she has just made.  She can call on the auspicious mark after seeing the result of the D20 roll.  PRG:UC

Boasting Taunt (Ex):  While raging, the barbarian can incite a creature to attack her by making an Intimidate check to demoralize.  If the check succeeds, the target is also shaken as long as the barbarian is visible and raging or until it makes a melee attack against the barbarian.  The barbarian receives a +2 circumstance bonus on this check for every alcoholic drink she has consumed during this rage.  This is a language-dependent mind-affecting effect, and it relies on audible components.  The barbarian must be at least 6th level to select this power.  PRG:APG
Body Bludgeon (Ex):  While raging, if the barbarian pins an opponent that is smaller than her, she can then use that opponent as a two-handed improvised weapon that deals 1D8 points of bludgeoning damage, assuming the opponent is sized Small.  Larger or smaller creatures used as a bludgeon deal damage based on their size using this base damage.  A size Tiny creature deals 1D6 points of damage, a size Medium creature deals 1D10 points of damage, and so on.  The barbarian can make a single attack using the pinned opponent as part of the action she uses to maintain the grapple, using her highest attack bonus.  Whenever the barbarian hits using the pinned opponent as a weapon, she deals damage to her target normally, and the grappled opponent used as a bludgeon also takes the same damage she dealt to the target.  If the pinned opponent is unable to resist being pinned for any reason, the barbarian can use that opponent as an improvised weapon without grappling or piining the opponent, until the creature is reduced to 0 or fewer hit points, at which point the creature becomes useless as an improvised weapon.  A barbarian must be at least 10th level before selecting this rage power.  PRG:UC

Crippling Blow (Ex):  When using her Powerful Blow rage power, the barbarian can forgo the normal bonus to damage (including any bleed damage granted by the Bleeding Blow rage power or similar boosts to the damage of the Powerful Blow rage power) and instead deals 1 point of ability damage to the target's Strength or Dexterity score for every four class levels the barbarian has attained.  The target can attempt a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + 1/2 the barbarian's level + the barbarian's Strength modifier) to halve this ability damage.  A barbarian must have the Powerful Blow rage power and be at least 8th level before selecting this rage power.  PRG:UC

Evade Reach (Ex)​:  At 5th level, as a swift action, a Titan Mauler may choose one creature within her line of sight.  Until the end of her turn, that target's reach is treated as if it were 5 feet shorter with respect to reaching the Titan Mauler, and the reduction increases by 5 feet for every five levels beyond 5th.  This ability replaces Improved Uncanny Dodge.
Titanic Rage (Su)​:  At 14th level, a Titan Mauler may choose to gain the benefits of enlarge person when she enters a rage.  While using Titanic Rage, she must spend 2 rounds of rage per round, and she becomes exhausted rather than fatigued when the rage ends.  This ability replaces Indomitable Will.

  • Knockback
  • Mighty Swing
  • Powerful Blow

  • Night Vision
  • Raging Climber
  • Raging Leaper
  • Raging Swimmer

True Primitive

​Isolated and xenophobic tribes that dwell in areas untouched by civilization often see anything from cities and organized settlements as strange, dangerous, and decadent.  They gain power from their truly primitive nature; their bodies and spirits are hardened by the wild and untainted existence far from the pathentic softness of so-called civilization.  Even when forced to mingle with civilization, the True Primitive stays apart in both traditions and trappings.  The True Primitive has the following class features.  PRG:UC

Weapon and Armour Proficiency​:  A True Primitive is proficient with hide armour and armours made from bone.  A True Primitive is also proficient with bone shields and the following weapons.
  • Battleaxe
  • Blowgun
  • Club
  • Greatclub
  • Handaxe
  • Longspear
  • Shortspear
  • Sling
  • Spear
Illiteracy​:  A True Primitive cannot read or write, and her supersititon about such things leads her to refuse to ever learn to read or write, even if she multiclasses into other classes.
Favored Terrain (Ex)​:  A True Primitive has a favored terrain representing her native homeland.  This ability functions as the ranger class feature, and the True Primitive's bonuses in that terrain improve by +2 at 5th level and every five levels thereafter.  However, she does not gain any additional favored terrains.  This ability replaces Fast Movement.
  • Animal Fury
  • Eater of Magic
  • Ghost Rager
  • Low-Light Vision
  • Night Vision
  • Primal Scent
  • Scent
  • Spell Sunder
  • Sunder Enchantment
  • Superstition
  • Witch Hunter
Trophy Fetish (Ex)​:  A True Primitive collects teeth, bones, hair, and other trophies from vanquish enemies, representing their power and strength.  At 3rd level, a True Primitive can attach a trophy fetish to one of their traditional True Primitive weapons listed above.  When wielding that weapon, the True Primitive gains a +1 morale bonus on damage rolls.  Furthermore, if that weapon has the fragile property, once per day, the True Primitive can ignore the effects of a single natural 1 roll.  A trophy fetish can also be attached to a suit of hide or bone armour, granting the True Primitive a +1 morale bonus on saving throws.  Furthermore if that armour has the fragile property, once per day, the True Primitive can choose not to have the armour break on the confirmation of a critical hit made against her.  Every five levels beyond 3rd, a True Primitive can use an additional trophy fetish.  Multiple trophy fetishes can be attached to the same armour or weapon; their effects stack.  A trophy fetish can be sundered (hardness 5, 1 hit point) but is not damaged by area attacks or attacks that do not specifically target it.  It has no effect if attached to other types of weapons or armour.  This ability replaces Trap Sense.
Rage Powers​:  The following rage powers complement the True Primitive archetype. 


​Wild Rager

​Rages are barely controlled, but there are those who wholly give in to their more savage side, letting their rages take them to a confusing and uncontrolled place of terrible savagery.  The barbarians become beasts, consumed with absolute bloodlust to the point where they cannot tell friend from foe.  The Wild Rager has the following class features.  PRG:UC

Uncontrolled Rage (Ex)​:  A Wild Rager's rage functions as normal, except that when she reduces a creature to 0 or fewer hit points, she must attempt a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 the barbarian's level + the barbarian's Constitution modifier) or become confused.  For the remainder of her current turn, she attacks the nearest creature other than herself.  On the following round, refer to the Confusion spell to determine her action.  At the end of this round, and each round thereafter, she can attempt a new saving throw to end the confusion effect.  The rounds during which she is confused do not count against the rounds she has spent raging that day, but she cannot end her rage voluntarily, nor can she use her rage powers while confused.
Wild Fighting (Ex)​:  At 2nd level, even when not raging, Wild Ragers often fight with reckless, savage abandon.  A Wild Rager using the full-attack action can make one extra attack per round at her highest base attack bonus.  Until the beginning of her next turn, however, she takes a -2 penalty on attack rolls and -4 penalty to AC.  This ability replaces Uncanny Dodge.
Rage Conversion (Ex)​:  At 5th level, a Wild Rager who fails a saving throw against any mind-affecting effect can attempt a new saving throw at the beginning of her next turn.  If the save succeeds, that effect ends and she instead rages and becomes confused as noted above.  This ability replaces Improved Uncanny Dodge.
Rage Powers​:  The following rage powers complement the Wild Rager archetype. 
  • Animal Fury
  • Bloody Blow
  • Body Bludgeon
  • Brawler
  • Brawler, Greater
  • Crippling Blow
  • Intimidating Glare
  • Mighty Swing
  • No Escape
  • Powerful Blow
  • Quick Reflexes.
