From the frozen wastes to the north and the hellish jungles of the south come the brave, even reckless, warriors. Civilized people call them barbarians or berserkers and suspect them of mayhem, impiety, and atrocities. These "barbarians," however, have proven their mettle and their value to those who would be their allies. To enemies who underestimate them, they have proven their cunnning, resourcefulness, persistence, and mercilessness.
