Hacking the Fighter for Mutant Crawl Classics

I already messed around with Wizards for Mutant Crawl Classics. This time around Fighters. You know who I’m talking about.

Sure there is the Sentinel in MCC and they are good combat and have something akin to the Deed Die but not quite the same. I wanted to bring a class with (i.e. The Fighter) with a full blown Deed Die into MCC for a slightly more Thundarr like character plus Barbarians can be just cool and fun. Now I will admit that I’ve seen some of the ideas somewhere else before. It could have been the Gong Farmers’ Almanac, a home brew or something. I really don’t remember. But here you go: The Fighter re-imagined as
The Wasteland Barbarian
The Basics:
As Warrior from Core DCC Book: HD, Action Dice, Will Saves (See Below), and Deed Die (Deed Die only applies to non-Artifact Weapons. See below for additional uses of the Deed Die.)
From MCC Core Book: Crits as Sentinel, Artifact Checks as Plantient.
AI Recognition: While Barbarians are Pure Strain Humans, their lack of technological aptitude gives them only a +1 bonus to AI Recognition checks.
Darwinian Luck: Barbarians regain spent Luck at a rate 1 point per day. Additionally, a Barbarian may spend Luck (1/1) to increase melee attack damage.
Fortune Favors the Bold: Barbarians apply their Luck Modifier to their AC.
Natural Athlete: Barbarians may use their Deed Die when attempting Amazing Deeds of Physical Prowess. (Works like Mighty Deeds but for non-combat applications: jumping, flipping. climbing etc). Barbarians do not gain a flat bonus to Reflex and Fortitude Saves, instead add the character’s Deed Die.
Fabulous Sun Sword!: The Barbarian may select one specific melee Artifact Weapon as his signature weapon. The character’s Deed Die applies normally to this weapon. This weapon can be changed only when the character gains a level. This includes if the previous weapon was lost. The character may apply their Deed Die to the Artifact Check for a weapon that the character wishes to become their Fabulous Sun Sword!
I’m still bouncing around ideas to re-imagine the Cleric. I think that idea will soon come together. And before anyone asks, I don’t plan on hacking the Thief.

  1. Darwinian Luck, “..a Barbarian my spend Luck…”, that my should be may.
    Fabulous Sun Sword!, I definitely recognize this one 😉 however, are you implying that they start with one, or they have to find one and adopt it?
