Kicking off the Quintessential Barbarian is Character Concepts, and this has to be the most detailed yet seen for any Quintessential book. A range of new characters are now possible with the Barbarian class, such as the Abandoned (raised by animals), the Diplomat (sent to communicate with civilization by his tribe or clan), Exile, Explorer, Ex-Slave, Gladiator, Guide, Lunatic, Manhunter (amazon), Noble, Quester, Raider, Stoic Warrior, and Thug.

The Dervish, for example, or the Despoiler, Devolutionary, Fetish Warrior, Horse Nomad, Master of the Hunt, Mind Killer, Pit Fighter, Planar Savage, Runner, Scavenger, Sea Wolf and Wizard Slayer.

In Tricks of the Trade, this class can now have a go at Bartering, Predicting Weather, adopting Camouflage, Long Distance Signaling, Mimic Animal Sounds, find lots new ways to use the Intimidate skill (fighters might want to have a look at this too) and taking the Shape Journey - a meditative process whereby the Barbarian's spirit adopts an animalistic form.

Barbarian Feats adds the final touch for character customization and there are lots of new abilities that will be of interest to the wild warrior. Fervor of the Boar will allow a
