Barbarian History

Barbarians closely parallel humans in their physical appearance and biology. They were first encountered on the new continent in AoC 56. It is thought that they may be descendants of humans, but they exhibit some traits that indicate other influences. The term barbarian was given to this race by the humans who first had contact with them. It is indicative of their crude, primitive, tribal social structure. They are a physically strong people, but have little aptitude for skills that require abstract thinking. They are frequently seen in the new settlements, but have not completely adapted to village life.
