The prime requisites for a Barbarian are Strength and Dexterity. A Barbarian character with a 13 or greater in a prime requisite will gain a + 10% bonus on earned experience points

Restrictions: Barbarians us a d8 to determine their Hit Points. They may use leather armor, chainmail, in addition to shields and helmets. They may use any type of weapon except pole-arms, and lances. Barbarians do not suffer the weak to live, and so all Barbarian characters must have a minimum Constitution score of 9.
