“Don’t get in my way!”
There isn’t a monster, prison tower, or evil tyrant in the world that the Barbarian wouldn’t try to demolish. With powerful muscles from a life in the savage wilderness and a sword gripped in each hand, he smashes, bashes, and crashes his way through every obstacle in his path, no matter how tough or dangerous it may be.
People say that the Barbarian is utterly unstoppable, and they’re almost right. He doesn’t blink at ogres, trolls, or many-headed hydras, and he laughs in the faces of evil sorcerers and axe-wielding viziers. So what’s the one thing that gives this burly brawler pause? He’s terrible at spelling. That’s why he’s started spending his weekends at the library, practicing his reading!
