Basic Package Deals
Savage
Savages are warriors from more primitive and / or less civilized lands who rely on sheer athleticism and moxy rather than fancy or well crafted armaments. Savages tend to focus on survival and overall fitness.
Savages can be somewhat similar to Light Foot but without concentrating overly much on the mastery of a specific weapon (to a Savage everything is a weapon), and with more concentration on raw athletic ability.
Despite the connotation of the word "savage", Savages are not ravening brutes by default; they are simply primal and unspoiled by more advanced modicums of behavior. Many Savages follow a personal or cultural Code of behavior that, while typically more practical and/or direct, is nevertheless as binding to them as a well defined Code of Chivalry is to the most hide-bound and chivalrous of Knights. This is a concept often referred to as "the Noble Savage".
