Ronin are masterless samurai, doomed to wander the land, disgraced. As a Ronin, your goal in life is to regain your honor through deeds, or, if this path was chosen, use your powers to become your own lord.

Ronin Overview

Characteristics: Ronin specialize in one of two areas: Being in a group, or being alone. Depending upon which path is chosen, bonuses are given to help the individual or help the party. Overall, however, Ronin have massive bonuses to attack and defense in order to hit their enemies without fail and take few hits. Spell-casters are a Ronin's biggest weakness.
Religion: Many Ronin worship Bishamonten, the God of War, but any war god can be chosen.
Races: Due to the reliance on Strength and Dexterity, the ideal races for a Ronin are Dragonborn or Humans. However, any race can be a Ronin.
