Class Features


Highlander is a Class in Black Geyser: Couriers of Darkness. A character's class is their profession and grants specific features as listed. New features, and access to Skills, Weapons, Armor, Spells, and such, are granted differently for each class that a player selects. Classes in Black Geyser are chosen during Character Creation where you can view each strengths and weaknesses.


Highlanders are hardy and strong warriors. Their profession, originating in the harsh north, forged strong warriors tough enough to resist the elements. They prefer thick armor that doesn't restrict their movement and helps them blend into natural environments. While they can pick up and use any weapon, they prefer the raw and crushing power of clubs and hammers.

Highlander Lore

During the Rise of Empires and the Age of Demigods, one demigod Gundemund took hold of the entire Northern Realm. Using his great power and influence he enslaved the tribes of the upper mountain ranges, condemning their people to slavery and servitude.

Gundemund forced the highlanders to mine minerals and resources and build great timber fortresses and simple stone monuments in his image. He controlled all of their craft, livestock and crop production. Ruling with an iron fist, the demigod sold much of the highlander’s goods to other empires—hoarding away the riches of their efforts for himself. While the demigod lavished in luxury, the highlanders struggled to put food on their tables.

Gundemund was as cunning as he was strong, using the hope of financial gain and independence to retain control over so many. Gundemund’s empire grew quickly and grew large.

The demigod’s rule lasted for many, many years until one of the slaves known as Tor, rallied his brothers and sisters and moved against his master in a passionate act of rebellion. Thousands of highlanders united, taking up their hammers and crude working tools as weapons. In an epic battle that is still sung in tavern halls throughout the north today, Tor defeated Gundemund and freed his kin. Tor is known throughout Yerengal as the only mortal being to ever kill a demigod.

Today highlanders exist throughout all of Yerengal. Although only a few can claim direct bloodlines to the northern tribes during the time of Gundemund, many have come to take up the highlander’s way of life. A calling to a simpler way of life, usually taken up by only the strongest and fittest, highlanders are men and women who relish freedom above all else.

Forever honoring the mortal responsible for their freedom, highlanders live by their own set of rules, often disregarding local laws and regulations, but always keen on stopping tyranny and oppression where ever they find it. For all highlanders live with the superstition that if they let even one people become enslaved or oppressed, Gundemund will rise from the dead and return to enslave all highlanders till the end of time.

Highlanders live in the wildest places in Yerengal. As such they have adapted these areas with great resilience. Highlanders have natural immunities and defenses to many natural phenomena. Residing in less civilized areas they are more skillful in areas and abilities that rely on the outdoors and nature.

While highlanders are not restricted to any weapon sets, they almost never take up formal training in the martial arts. Instead they rely on brute strength and instinct in their combat tactics… which serves them quite well. Highlanders employ devastating techniques with blunt weapons and other simple weapons. Their simple appearances disguise the true deadly effectiveness — a misjudgement few repeat more than once.
