The Barbarian handbook. Given to all Barbarians at birth Theyâ€™ll take one look and think they know us. Barbarians. Big and strong, but dim-witted Barbarians. Long have we fought off these common perceptions without success. We put ourselves at the frontline of every battle, not because we are so brainless that we donâ€™t fear death, but because we understand the meaning of sacrifice. We understand that God has given us the bodies and the skills that we have, to protect those in our group who require protection such as the Sorceresses who are weak and frail but who provide powers so valuable that they cannot be compromised by the hands of evil. Little is it known that we too are of high intelligence. Assumptions are a dangerous thing. We will not defeat you by sheer muscle alone. We will outsmart you in every facet of battle until you fall. You think because we yell, we are showing signs of unintelligent behavior? We practice these warcries from birth and they will add haste to your defeat. They propel ones self and all comrades within range to use the emotions within them to become more ever more powerful. Nothing will be left within, all will be felt by our enemies. Balance is of utmost important to the Barbarian lifestyle. Due to the immense release of energy felt when warcrying, we Barbarians must find time for meditation to counter this. We must use our meditation to control this energy and restore ourselves, and the ability to continue to use our warcries. Plus our throats get a little scratchy. Our training is not only of body but also of mind. Without a strong mind, the strength of our bodies is negated. We Barbarians will spend many hours studying. From birth, you will be trained for combat, trained to protect the lands of Harrogath and beyond, but do not forget the balance required to be the perfect warrior you can be. Always may you stand victorious on your battle field, yet always long for the day when you need fight no more when the lands are at peace and the evil is vanquished forever.
