#1 With a Bullet Point: 8 Barbarian Feats

This pdf is 3 pages long, 1 page intro/front cover, 1 page SRD/editorial, leaving 1 page for 8 new feats for barbarians, so let's check this out!

The feats are as follows:

-Battle Lust: Each round in which you crit you score with a weapon that has a x3 or x4-modifier does not count against your rounds spent in rage.

-Great Thews: Expend one round of rage for 10 minute-lasting rage power.

-Iconic Barbarian: Once per day, use a rage power normally usable only one time per rage an additional time.

-Melancholy: Suffer only half the penalty to any attacks, damage and skill-checks, but also gain only half the morale bonus.

-Mighty Stamina: Ignore the fatigued condition for 24 hours for expending 1 round of rage. The rage does not refill until you sleep for 8 hours.

-Panther-like Grace: Expend one round of rage for a bonus to dex-checks or dex-related skill-checks equal to half your class-level. Rather bland and without a bonus to reflex saves, not a good choice.

-Sudden rage: When rolling initiative, you may start raging immediately and add your Con-modifier to initiative.

-Thews: Spend a round of rage to gain access to a rage power for 1 minute.

Conclusion:
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to SGG's 3-column standard and the pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length. The feats are great and present iconic ways to enhance your playing experience of the barbarian, hearkening back to the pulp-classics of old. For one buck, you can't go wrong here and the feats present no balance-problems. While melancholy is rather powerful and might upset some games, it can also work VERY, VERY well in a game and a barbarian in my group tested it and immensely enjoyed it - surprisingly, the feat didn't unbalance my game. With one feat feeling rather worse and boring but the rest being better, I'll practically have to settle for a final verdict of 4 stars - a great investment to add some support for the unfortunately often neglected barbarian-class.

Endzeitgeist out.

If you want more mighty-thewed barbarians superior to those weakened by the decadence of civilization, these are the feats you have been looking for.

#1 with a Bullet Point: 8 Barbarian Feats is a 3-page PDF (2 pages if you remove the credits/OGL page) for the Pathfinder RPG written by Owen K. C. Stephens and published by Super Genius Games. This is part of Super Genius Games’ #1 with a Bullet Point (One Idea, One Page, One Dollar) line.

The layout is a screen-friendly landscape design, with cover art and 1-column on the first page and three columns on the rest. There are a couple black and white pieces of art appropriate to the subject.

This entire product range is designed around presenting a single idea quickly and efficiently, as explained on the first page, then it moves onto the framing idea for the product (simulating certain iconic fiction barbarians) and the eight feats to do so. This will allow you to build the Iconic Barbarian with Mighty Thews and Panther-like Grace.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThruRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
