Hubris Player Classes- Fighter

Last post I described the playable races of Hubris.  I also laid out the themes I was using in developing the world.  The most important of these being: Sword and Sorcery, Weird, and Grim.  I also wanted this to extend into the classes as well.

The available classes are going to be: FighterRogueRangerBarbarianSorcererWarrior PriestDruid, and Witch.

My ruleset is a hack of Trent B’s Old School-style rules, which is where my heart lies.

I wanted to keep the elegant simplicity of Trent’s system, but add a few abilities, etc that could make each class slightly more “varied.”  All of these abilities are gained or chosen at level one.


Female Warrior


Info– HD- d8, Base Attack Bonus +1 per level, weapon damage d8

Martial Prowess: Choose Two

Rapid Attack– Get a second attack, even with movement, at a -5 to roll, with bow or melee.
