How Different are the 3pp Barbarian classes?

Post by Nyarlathotep5150 » Fri Jan 30, 2015 2:30 pm

Hi all. I have a question about the different 3pp barbarian classes. Basically, my question is, are they significantly different enough to be worth having multiple versions. I ask because I am looking at picking up D.A.M.N. #1, but the barbarian is the thing I am mostly interested in from it (I have a backlog of adventures right now so I don't need those yet). I already have Tales From the Fallen Empire however. So, is it worth picking up D.A.M.N. as well or not?

As the writer for that class, it would not be assuming to expect a conflict of impartiality, however I remain quite proud of the work I did, and as far as Barbarians in DCC, it is my belief that the D.A.M.N. edition sets the bench mark from which all further barbarian classes shall be measured. :)

I'd have to agree with the above. I recently added the barbarian as an accepted class to the game and I read over DAMN, Crawl's Orc Class (barbarian-y), and the one from Fallen Empire or whatever it is called, and DAMN's is so streamlined and easy to understand that it's really no contest.

I just wish the editors and owner had selected a different name for the magazine. I can't in good conscience allow a magazine with that name to be in my home. :(
