A well rounded fighter, levels up weapons and armor easy. They also tend to have good carrying capacity.
Description: "A skilled combatant. What they lack in armor they make up for in strength and fighting prowess."
Gear: 2 Torches, Iron Mace, Iron Ax, 2 slightly aged Bread, Wood Shield, Leather Helm, Bottle of Booze.
Strategy: Open combat with a well timed clobber from your mace, then swap to the ax and wail on the target repetitively until they fall, hold a shield while fighting to increase def. If you find a spell book of light, cast the spell whenever you can stand still. Barbarians can become fairly adept at magic towards the end of the game, casting less useful staffs such as locking will also up your skills.
