Overview & Creation

  All barbarians, including this unique one are fierce fighters, malevolent enemies and powerful allies (well if you are not standing in their way), though these fellows are not tribal, or nomadic, as usual, the rage is building up in them slowly by the increasing alcohol in their blood, more of a drunken haze, a mindless forbiddance in a alcoholic stupor.  
  There is a few ways to become such a person as a Beer-Barian : Beer-Barians are the opposite of the wild and unharnessed barbarian brothers, and they are more accustomed to the towns and cities, and pretty much are the town dwellers.Street, bar, arena, arm-wrestling contest - That's where you find a Beer-barian, drinking laughing out loud, and testing the limits of his strenght
