We've tinkered with some experimental changes to barbarians. There is some more stuff we may or may not do; if nothign else, rewriting a couple scripts in EMS has to happen at some point anyway.

Stuff that's currently live:

*) Barbs receive 1 use of rage per day per level. We've added custom feedback since your hotkeyed feats will not give an accurate reliable count:

This is roughly 4x the number of rages you get in normal NWN/PnP. It is modelled on the Bard song uses/day as a balancing reference point. We may or may not consider adding Extended Rage and Extra Rage feats, though I'm not sure that's necessary any more. Feedback is invited.


Barbarians also get one more bonus feat while enraged:

This is to compensate somewhat for Uncanny Dodge not working as advertised. The functionality overlaps, and I'm told "Monster Uncanny Reflex" is more reliable.

We have some other ideas, some of which are doable in a reasonable way, some of which are not. If you have any suggestions or ideas or feedback, speak up. Another project that may get some attention is the creation of a few more items for barbs.

Awesome!

Extended rage would be a very very good thing.

Extra Rage would concievably be a good thing for multiclass barbs.

When does the barb tumble thing kick in?

Not until we revise the HAK list required. I still don't know why druids are broekn, and am holding an update until that is resolved. Of course, I'm on vacation for a week.
