Midnight: Age of Shadows
Battle is a constant fact of life in Midnight, and in times when training is rare and weapons are outlawed, fury is often all that a warrior has left. Barbarians have become increasingly common among the free peoples of Eredane since the Third Age, especially among the Kurgun dwarves, as they give in to their rage at the daily destruction of their way of life. Some Erunsil, Danisil, and clan dwarves also forgo their training and finesse and take on the mantle of these brutal warriors. The Dorns once boasted many barbarians among their fighting ranks, but most of these now cut down before they reach their prime. Above all, orcs and dworgs are the most likely to become barbarians; both their nature and their surroundings almost demand it.
