I’ve written up the major nations for Dinosaur Riding Barbarians, but I don’t think I ever posted the class concepts. Let’s go ahead and fix that.
The Beastmaster commands a small pack of dinosaur minions, usually velociraptors or deinonychus.

Digging once more into the well of previously made work that I thought I’d exhausted, here are the descriptions for various lands in Dinosaur Riding Barbarians, a TTRPG I’ve made that I still plan to complete…someday. Currently it’s maybe 60% of the way through a first draft. Completing the system isn’t much of a priority right now, but you might find the fluff useful for other games.
