I started off trying to change the existing Viking variant, but I realize that it isn’t my place to do so. At the encouragement of a few (thanks), though, I decided to keep going with whatever class I wanted to come up with (More for personal use, I don't mean to start the next craze, and I doubt the (NOR) could do that :)) and just use a different tag. I like aspects of both the Barbarian and Viking class, so I mixed’em together till I had something I knew I’d stick with for awhile. Some of it is “historically accurate,” the rest of it is just to satisfy my neurotic tendencies ;) Thanks for putting up with me, I’ll stop babbling and get on with it.
