Cossacks and Tartars: Cossack class

Cossack
Prime attributes: Strength; Constitution
Hit Dice: d8

Cossack in the XVII century is more of a life style than an ethnicity. Roaming around Dzikie Pola heavy drinking and pillaging is their daily routine. Some are hired into the magnates’ private armies, some live in siches during warmer seasons and in winter havens during cold ones. Most of them are of eastern slavic descendancy, however even some tartars, polish nobility with infamy and englishmen occur among their ranks.
