The Updated Beastman Class With Layout Images

Yesterday was the Barbarian class, so today is the Beastman! Feel free to take a look at the updated character sheet for Barbarians of the Ruined Earth.

I thought it would be fun to release the updated version of some of the classes, specifically the Barbarian, Beastman, and Sorcerer with the full images of the spreads that will appear in the book. Since those are the three main characters in Thundarr the Barbarian, thought it would be appropriate.

Lastly- if this is something you dig and think is cool- stop by the kickstarter page and pledge some support and also spread the word!

Anyways, here’s the images with the full text to follow below. Tomorrow will be the Sorcerer.


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 impressive 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: Light and Medium Armor, Small and Large Shields, Claws, Clubs, Maces, Spears, Axes, and Bows.

Weapon Damage: 1d8/1d6 Improvised


Animal Features: The Beastman has claws and is never considered unarmed.  They 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 a Beastman can do impossible feats of strength and be awesome (i.e., lift a huge pillar of cement/vehicle/rock/etc.) and throw it, push it, or whatever.  No roll is needed to accomplish this.  If this is used to attack, an attack (Strength) roll must be made.  If successful, the attack deals 2d10 points of damage.

Thick Hide: Once per day the Beastman’s hide becomes thick and offers enhanced protection. They take half damage from all sources, save for magic.  This effect lasts a number of rounds equal to the Beastman’s level. 

Leveling Up: Roll all Attributes to see if they increase, roll twice for STR or CON.
