The Fantastic Barbarian

So because the lols I decided to make a really silly and difficult build. Why not make a barbarian that has ridiculous stats? And that's just what I'm going to talk about. Meet my solo barbarian, Mr. MRAAAAGH


Strength-20 (to balance things out and I was a half orc)
Constitution-4 (requires to be 4 due to race)
Intelligence-1 (BRING IT ON MIND FLAYERS!)

If anyone has any tips for me, that would be coolio ;)

    Also, I won't be using any tomes/items that increase my attributes

    Dig a grave before you step out of candlekeep, save some time later! :)
    Would also like to know how it turns out. Good luck anyway!

    Nashkel has a nice graveyard, I have to say... ;)
    Jokes aside, DAT 4 CON on a half orc is really...could you imagine a half orc skinny, ill, maybe asmatic, or such...??
    But I admire your crazy mind bravery and I hope you'll put here some tales of your adventures, @LifeIsntThatHallow. :)

    Well, so far I've gotten to the Bandit Camp. I had to reload the game about 50 times either from being attacked by random things that I can't deal with or dying ("Oh look a wolf. :D" *Hurling mass of ice swarms my face and kills me*). Luckily I level up very quickly and being a barbarian, I have the biggest hit die (d12 so that means lots of hitpoints :) ) My strategy? Quaff whatever potions, Quicksave, Rage, Rest and repeat.

    How high is your Armor Class with dex 3 and your hp with con 4? That would be interesting to know

    Well I have a base Armor Class of 13. (Remember the lower the AC the better!) But with regular splint mail I have an armor class of 7. As for hp NORMALLY I would get 12hp per level. However with my low con I only receive 11hp per level. So, 11x4 (I'm level 4 by the way) that would equal 44hp.

    You will use at least the STR tome, as that stat is the only one you've maxed out?

    Did you not get the Gauntlets of Dexterity? I'd think that'd be the single most important item this run, although I understand if you wanted to preserve more of the challenge by avoiding it.
