Figured I’d post another class/race from my upcoming Barbarians of the Ruined Earth. Last time I posted the Robot. Today we look at the Beastman!
Beastmen hail from all over the ruined earth and are as varied in temperament and appearance as any human. All Beastmen are known for their bestial appearance, strong traditions, and their massive strength. Beastmen emerged from the ashes of the Ruined Earth, savage, primordial, and tenacious; each tribe fighting to make a home for themselves in the wastes.
“You fear me for my savagery and chastise me for honoring my ancestors, yet you covet my strength, attempting to control my kind by chain, by coin, or by magic.”
Starting HP: 1d12+4
Hit Points Per Level/Resting: 1d12 HP
Weapons and Armor: Any and All.
Weapon Damage: 1d8/1d6 Unarmed or Improvised
Animal Features: The Beastman has claws and can see in the dark (Nearby radius).
Super strong: Has Advantage on feats of strength for lifting stuff, breaking things, flexing muscles, etc (not attack rolls).
Impossibly Strong: Once per hour can do impossible feats of strength and be awesome (IE. lift a huge pillar of cement/vehicle/rock/etc.) and throw it, push it, or whatever. No roll needed. If this used to attack, it hits automatically and deals 2d10 points of damage.
Thick Hide: Once per combat can ignore damage from a physical attack.
Leveling Up: Roll all Attributes to see if they increase, roll twice for STR or CON.
