Finally, a Barbarian class that gets it

The ACKs Player's Companion Kickstarter hit its first Bonus Goal, and we got the ACKS Barbarian class.

Finally, a Barbarian class for D&D that I can actually use to make Conan without having to house rule the thing (1)

1) The AD&D Barbarian was honestly a bit of a mess. The third edition Barbarian introduced Rage (which is cool for berserkers) but then forced every barbarian to be built entirely around it (wait, what?).

  1. Glad to hear it. I continue to be tempted by this product. Yeah, the D&D barbarian was pretty much unplayable as written.

  2. Yeah, I've never really been happy with D&D barbarians. But this one, I'm really liking.

  3. I'm liking ACKS more and more. Just used the class build rules to make up some new classes, and it's simple and fun to do too :)

  4. I remember you mentioning planning to make a "Spider Hunter" class -- I'm looking forward to seeing that. The Dragon Hunter is cool.
