Berserking is a skill usable only by high level warriors. Called the
'blood fever' by many, it is a barely controllable rage that can take
hold of a warrior in battle and make him a fearsome, uncaring opponent.
Those under the influence of the skill attack without fear and often
without reason, wanting only to do as much damage as possible. It also
makes much more difficult to daze or stun.
Berserking fighters will also take on multiple targets at the same time,
attacking whenever an opportunity presents itself. Berserking is most
effective when there are many smaller targets to choose from.
The skill is not without disadvantages however - the warrior does not think
clearly and is blinded by rage to the extent that killing is all they are
capable of doing. As a result, their armor class is reduced while at the
same time their attacks become more powerful. Spellcasting is completely
out of the question, and fleeing is highly unlikely. Often a berserking
fighter is only stopped by his death, or the death of his opponents.
