Class Selection[edit]

Class selection is important in a campaign, since having a party of three to six wizards is going to get one of those wizards killed very quickly, but having four healers will result in an imprgnable, but unthreatening, group. Collaboration with fellow players to select the appropriate classes to fill the needed role is vital.

Types[edit]

There are several types of classe, based on what they do. Martial classes are made for fighter physically. Skillful classes are capable of using many skills to their advantage in every situation. Arcane classes cast arcane magic, and divine classes divine magic. Psionic classes use psionic in some way.

Roles[edit]

A party has roles that need to be filled to be effective in a campaign. Someone needs to be the muscle, there needs to be magic, there needs to be a healer, and there needs to be the skills. Other roles are the diplomat, figurehead and information gatherer of the party; thief, scout and acquisition specialist; and item maker, a magic user that focuses on making magic arms or wondrous items for the party. Many other roles exist to be filled, but are often capable of being filled in addition to other more vital roles.

Races[edit]

The race of a character effects his propensity toward certain classes. For example, halflings are capable rogues, but pour fighters. Take in to account the optimal classes for your chosen race when selecting your role and your class.

Classes[edit]

Classes represent the inclinations and capabilities of a character. Some roles are better filled by some classes than by others. Once you are clear with what role or roles you wish to fill, take into account the roles each class is most suited to fill.
