Astonishing ACKS – Beastlord Class

Beastmaster Movie PosterYet another custom class caught my eye, this time from By This Axe I Rule!

  • Beastlord: Barbarian warrior/shaman with a primal connection to his totem animal.

I’ll need to make a few adjustments to account for Hyperborean Barbarian backgrounds, and I’ve got some custom rules for Divine Spellcasting.

I’ve also tweaked the cost for Fighting trade-offs, which reduces the base experience required for 2nd level to 2250 XP.
