TACTICS

Before Combat The barbarian uses his warhorse for transportation, but if expecting combat, he retrieves an animal from his bag of tricks and rides it instead.

During Combat The barbarian charges whenever possible, whether mounted or on foot, using Mounted Combat and his +1 arrow catching buckler to divert attacks made against his mount. If his mount is slain, he draws a replacement from his bag of tricks and makes a fast mount. He uses guarded stance and rolling dodge as needed, often using them or renewed vigor after a ride-by charge while circling around into position for another charge.
