Homebrew Archetype Spotlight Barbarian Path of the Skald

While scouring the internet for Classes,Subclasses,Races and Optional rules to bring to play in my personal game I decided I would bring my followers along. I welcome your input to any classes I list here on your thoughts of balance and what you think of them in general. This like many of the others I am likely to share here in the coming days are not my personal work. They represent the hard work of other gamers and I have found what they have done to be good quality and fitting for my Homebrew game. I am welcoming input for two reasons.

  1. I plan on bringing these items to my personal game. Any thoughts on balance compared to other Archetype offerings are desired.
  2. If in that discussion I find things I missed you and I will have saved my players the grief of discovering it in a game.
  3. This also gives me the chance to “Polish” of my personal setting anything that might come up in the discussion of these Archetypes for my personal use.

I love the concept of the Skald. I have liked the concept of Skalds ever since I first came across the optional Barbarian Variant in 3.5 D&D. I also enjoy the idea of “Battle Bards” In my mind, the majority of Bards never play an instrument. So the Skald helps fill that niche for me. Additional I think the Skald not only fits that roll but fits it well.

So my first Homebrew Extra allowed in Primordia will be Path of the Skald.
