Classes

All classes are listed here, as well as thematic changes necessary to fit into the characters’ regions.

Alchemist: Mad scientist

  • East: This class is commonplace.
  • West: Usually alchemists serve as wizards’ assistants, but a select few make it big.

Barbarian: the traditional berserk

  • South: Barbarians are much a part of both sides of the Karin conflict, as well as common soldiers in more centralized locales.
  • East: Barbarians are frowned upon as people who loose control in the heat of battle.
  • West: Barbarians are unheard of except in the Enge wilds.

Bard: master of song and story

  • South: The oral traditions of the Southern Tribes demand skilled bards to continue their history and legacy. Bards are revered, and loose much of their rogue-like status.
  • East: Bards are unheard of.
  • West: Bards are thought of as low, but this is changing as the popular demand for a reprieve and skilled actors/musicians increases.

Cavalier: Master of horse and battlefield

  • South: Sonori and Kaleese warriors favor this class.
  • East: Most cavaliers instead choose the samurai version of this class.
  • West: This class is not exactly common, but dragoons fill this role. Dragoons make use of firearms.

Cleric: devotee to the Way of Light

  • South: Clerics of Schyrra have heard the news the West professes, and have begun to spread the word.
  • East: Missionaries from the West have made their way to the East, but are very seldom successful.

Druid: devotee to the natural world

  • South: this class is exclusive to the shamans of the Southern Continent.

Fighter: armored combatant

  • East: The various martial arts schools tend to frown on someone who places trust in versatility, but many a peasant has taken up arms and picked up tricks along the way.
  • West: Fighters are common, and treat firearms as martial weapons rather than exotic.

Gunslinger: daring combatant

  • West: This class is exclusive to the Western peoples, with a notable exception.
  • East: Sword-slinging warriors of Wa may take this class, replacing firearms with katana and wakizashi. Some abilities, however, are not feasible with these weapons: use judgement.

Inquisitor: Pious avenger of a religion

  • South: This class is mostly devoted to The Obelisk
  • East: This class roots out blood mages and other filth.
  • West: This class is not as common as it once was.

  • West: This class is unknown.

Oracle: chosen representative of the divine

Paladin: paragon of virtue

Rogue: trickster and master of daring-do

  • South: While the church of the West has paladins, The Jester has its Troupers. Rogues operate as scouts and warriors capable of astonishing stealth and trickery.
  • East: Most operatives choose ninja as a class, but bandits and the like often do not have the willpower and choose rogue.
  • West: Rogues are everything from swashbucklers to pirates to drifting beggars.

Samurai: willful swordsman

  • East: These cavaliers are noble and rule the nation of Wa, while the Rajputs of Dalamar are similar.
  • West: Known as Knights, samurai of the West usually choose to be masters of the bastard sword and shield instead of the katana and wakizashi.
