Berzerker

From MythCraft Online SRD
Jump to navigation Jump to search

You were born amidst the towering arctic mountains, axe and spear in hand. From an early age, you displayed unmatched ferocity and unyielding spirit, but there was also a darkness about you. Even by the time you were a young teen, you displayed not just bravery, but unmitigated savagery on the battlefield. As you continued to hone your physical prowess, the burning rage within you only grew hotter. Now, you brim with tremendous bloodlust. The life of adventuring suits you, especially a life in pursuit of dangerous battles, as you look for any opportunity to unleash your inner demon.

You are known and feared for your unstoppable blood rage. Whether you give into a blind fury or enter an almost transcendent state of awareness amid the carnage, your blood rage is a savage and terrible thing that few have ever survived.

Berzerker Tracks

Exile: Your life is a cruel joke. Through some misdeed or overzealous act, you have become an exile, and you seek to make your own way in an uncaring world.

Fearless: You are made of sterner stuff than the average soldier and do not frighten easily. You can stare down any horror without flinching.

Juggernaut: Capable of withstanding more punishment than your companions, you assume the responsibility of the front-line fighter where you can absorb the brunt of enemy attacks.

Rage: By unleashing your inner demons, you can fuel your attacks with mighty rage. This allows you to do significantly more damage but also makes you easier to hit in your blind fury.
