Wait, what is a scimitar doing there? Isn't that a sword and not a knive? You know, made to be used in combat and shit. I didn't know people use swords for cooking.

A slasher or a carver most likely.

Butcher could work too but it usually would imply more precision than one expects of a barbarian.
>>
Doesn't need to be a class, just use a knife and take the Rage feats and Knife feats, maybe with Darting Weapon as well. Soldier class probably.

Good old FC and its sensible approach to class design.

I think Burglar would be a pretty good bet too, though, what with all of its stuff focused on causing and punishing Bleeding. You can't Sneak while in your Rage stance, sure, but even so.

The class system is probably my favourite aspect. In things like D&D it's just way to specific - if you're a barbarian, you NEED to be a primitive savage angryman, if you're a monk, you are expected to be all "chi and inner peace". It's more restrictive than it should be, and without major refluffing a lot of concepts are impossible.
>>
>>45030671
I'd call them Barbarians personally. Flayers if it's a one off cultural thing. Thorfinn if there's only one.

Kinda want to make this an alt class now. A Jason Voorhees class that has a "Hunt/Stalk" rather than rage. While active there's sneak attack and stealth bonuses, maybe Move Silently. Perhaps even early access to moving your full speed while stealthing emulate that chase feel where the psycho can pop in at any time.

So Slasher seems to be the popular name, but what unique mechanics would he have?
>>
>>45032696
He is capable of stabbing the shit out of someone.
Real answer, he can move inbetween squares with out prompting attacks of opportunity
>>
>>45032696

He's a barbarian with a knife. No new mechanics needed. Just get mad and don't stop stabbing until everyone is chunks.

Gimped

>>45030671
A savage, or a primitive Barbarian.

I'd roll it up into a barbarian subtype that gets a bonus with simple weapons like knives, clubs and spears, and class feats and things more geared to throwing weapons and attacking from ambush.

This would be nicely thematic for either a savage knife fighter, or a caveman-type barbarian.
