one thing that always bothers me is the long open hair together with the rest of the appereance.
long hair means you have to put a lot of time and effort into grooming. if it isn't knotted it means people do it regularly. even dreads have to be taken excellent care of unless you want mold in your hair.
then the beards. it takes a long time to grow a beard that long, careful grooming and hell if you ever tried to braid beard hair you know it takes forever.

at the same time the popular trope of the 'uncivilized/feral' barbarian always shows them with well groomed and kempt long hair.

in addition to that they wear it open. always. it gets in your eyes if you move around a lot, which is painful and causes your eyes to water, which means you can't see. effectively blinding yourself. your hair might actually kill you if you wear it open in any "combat" scenario. add to that all the edged weapons. why does no dwarf ever lose his beard in combat if the entire front of his body is covered in hair? and that open long hair is the first thing you'd hold on to in any brawl.

So one should think the trope would be that those barbarians and fighter type characters should have short hair, shaved heads, wear their hair bound in tails or knots.
all of which is pretty much backed up by any historical reference you look at.

so why the long hair?

Seriously this is gonna drive me insane. I don't get it.

>> No.29547005

>>29546656
>all of which is pretty much backed up by any historical reference you look at.

Not necessarily.

Vikings didn't typically braid anything. The accounts don't describe it as flowing like it is in the trope, but "shoulder length" seems to be the standard. As tacky as it is, you'd be surprised what a mullet can do for getting hair out of your eyes. Given that barbarians tend to parallel redneck shitkickers, it's not surprising how common that was.

The trope that tends to show them as well-groomed has a lot to do with heavy metal. It's less present in fiction before that. It's an aesthetic thing, like 99% of everything else in fantasy.

Also, you don't really need to manage long hair irl if you're a dirty unwashed savage. Good body and sheen to impress the ladies doesn't really matter if you're just going to rape them anyway.

However, it could have something of a comparative effect, considering vikings had a washing culture (saturdays) that was considerably cleaner than that of everyone else.

It's just aesthetics. So much of fantasy is jerking off a medieval cock with a fleshlight made of cool that to obsess over that iota of detail, of all the ridiculous nonsense that is fantasy, doesn't amount to much.

Don't let it bother you.

I doubt a barbarian would care. As long as it stays on your head and means you don't have to comb it everyday it's fine. It's the monthly retwisting that would get annoying, but I guess they can spend one day a month not raiding and pillaging something to get their wives/husbands/family to do it for them

if they other player characters don't listen to your character they can't really complain at the resulting conflicts.

it's a role playing game after all, play out your character according to his motivations.

sucks if it leads to internal struggle, but it's also kind of a dick move to ignore your character's wishes if he has explicitly stated them. why shouldn't he be angry? especially if it is about something his warrior honor or afterlife or some other spiritual belief.

First off, I don't think he even said which system he was playing. Secondly take second and think about what a roleplaying game is and what it should do for the player or why a player might decide to play it in the first place.

>A role-playing game (RPG and sometimes roleplaying game[1][2]) is a game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting or through a process of structured decision-making or character development.[3] Actions taken within many games succeed or fail according to a formal system of rules and guidelines.[4]

My point is the rules should provide help in structuring the narrative in such a way as to enable character to perform their actions, not restrict or force players to do or not do certain things.
In practice that means a certain degree of leeway in respect to the rules when it emphasises the roleplaying aspect or is in the interest of the narrative.
That is why you usually have a DM and not just a rulebook.

Depends on what culture they're from.

In a sedentary society, there was shitloads to do. Most people were farmers and the only raiding they did was when the crops were already taken care of, as a sort of supplementary income. So you're doing backbreaking, ceaseless labor for 3/4 seasons. That's hardly "nothing to do."

In a nomadic society, then yeah, they'd have a lot of time. They'd have some herds they'd keep together and follow around, and then go raid somebody for some money to afford things that they need that they don't produce, and then go back to wherever they like being the most, which was usually the same area. When nomads aren't cooking, eating, sleeping, or tending herds, they're generally loafing, playing music, that sort of thing. But most barbarians in fiction aren't really nomads, so I dunno.

Fantasy "barbarians" are just there to feel cool. It's not really good to look too closely.

Just like the woman. Thick but strong girls are my absolute favourite.
