The term Barbarian appears to be used in two senses in Fighting Fantasy. Firstly, it may be applied to any (usually Human) population which is considered to be culturally inferior by a more powerful, "civilised" neighbour. Secondly, and more specifically, it is a term applied to particular Human ethnic groups characterised by large physical stature and a rather primitive nomadic culture (at least compared with that of more "civilised" sedentary societies). However, it is not always clear which of these senses of Barbarian is intended in each case.
Barbarian Types[edit | edit source]
- The following is a list of Barbarians encountered in Fighting Fantasy on Titan:
- The Northern Barbarians of Allansia (Allansian Barbarians)
- The Barbarians West of the city-state of Kish in Southern Khul, who are kept from that city by mighty walls.
- The Barbarian invaders of Hachiman during the rule of the Shogun Kihei Hasekawa.
- The Barbarian raiders from Kulak Isle who were believed to be advancing on the city-state of Kallamehr during the reign of Lady Carolina Bluestone.
- The strange, crude, rough-skinned Allansian Barbarians in the mountain village encountered in Magehunter. These Barbarians gave The Magehunter shelter, and helped the Magehunter travel to a nearby village.
- The Klattamen
- The Lendleland Barbarians of Eastern Lendleland in the Old World.
- The Tribesmen of the Flatlands in Allansia.
- Note that Barbarians are also found on the world of Amarillia.

- The term Barbarian is also used to describe one of the Races within the UK version of BattleCards which have been linked with a lost continent of Titan.
