Berserk (Ability)
A red headband or armband.
 Incantation and gestures:
You may choose to go Berserk at any point on an eligible life by tying on the red band and announcing your Berserk state.
 Effect; While Berserk you gain the following traits:
- Natural Armor: 2 points on all hit locations.
- Strong: Melee Weapons become Red. Melee weapons that are already Red do an extra point of damage to armor for a total of three.
- Rage: Weapons used while berserk must be over two feet in length. Players may not cast magic, use projectiles, shields, hinged weapons, or activate class abilities (except Berserk).
- Armor worn is considered destroyed, and cannot be used while berserk. You may not retreat from combat unless facing odds of at least 5:1, monsters with a ratio of 5:1 or greater, or a Wizard, Healer, Druid, or Bard.
