Classes (Tirr Supplement)
From D&D Wiki
While the majority of people and creatures in Tirr revolve around a certain distribution of NPC and PC classes, very few of them manage any real note. Approximately 70% of the Material Plane's inhabitants are Commoner or Expert, 20% are Warriors and Adepts. 5% are Aristocrats and other NPC classes, while another 5% actually manage great feats as PC classes of merit.
Most classes are used from the core 3.5e rules, while very few changes have been made. The general synopsis of note is as followed:
- All Psychic Classes must be chosen at level 1, but have no racial restrictions or class limitations. This represents the latent power of a psychic individual that is born with them. Some rare, magical or deific intervention may differ from this, but it is the exception to the rule, and therefore not listed.
- Some classes have variant rules in play, within Tirr. Check the table below to see if your favorite class has had any alterations to fit the atmosphere and balance level of the Tirr Campaign.
- Multiple Homebrew Classes and Prestige Classes were created and/or adopted for use in the Tirr Campaign, and therefore have had modifications and power adjustments made accordingly; Available classes and any non-root adjustments are listed in the table below.
- The Fighter, Barbarian, Samurai, and Knight in the table below are the Races of War variations, with some modifications in some areas. Frank and K, the author of Races of War, designed these classes to be a bit more worthwhile in play than the vanilla melee classes. Some nerfs have been applied to meet the campaigns balance level, but they are the versions that have been fitted to this campaign settings.
