CLASS: BARBARIAN PRINCESSES (Macho Women without Guns) (MT)

You know the type: Xena: Warrior Princess, Red Sonja, and so on. Frequently with some kind of simmering grudge or endless quest, these warrior maidens enjoy knocking the hell out of men and other icky things. There is no rational explanation for their archaic language and dress. Maybe they're alien babes; maybe they slipped into our dimension when things got weird. Since they don't fit in very well, Barbarian Princesses think of everybody who hangs with them as 'followers.'

ASSETS: All points spent on Hit Things with Other Things and Throw Things are doubled, rounded down - i.e: level +3 costs 7 points instead of 15; 5 points buys level +2 instead of +1. Start out with base health of 12 instead of 10 and can carry half their Strength in Enc. without being encumbered.

LIABILITIES: Can't use guns! Also, if they want to wear armor they are restricted to 'old armor' and must buy Look Good in Armor, but the first level is free.
