Classes Reimagined[edit]

Just because you imagined it, doesn't mean you need to build a dedicated unique class entry for it. In fact, for many ideas, that is entirely unnecessary. The core classes are extremely flexible, and can easily be reimagined as something thematically similar without any need for mechanical alteration whatsoever. To encourage this activity, rather than endless heaps of redundant class entries, this page was created. Here, we can list all the things we have used the core classes to represent. Note that this is only for purely cosmetic and thematic alterations, not mechanical ones. Mechanically altered core classes are variant classes.

Multiclassed[edit]

If you allow multicasting, it becomes possible to mix the (already thematically open-ended) core classes in order to represent many more specific or unusual concepts they would not normally cover very well. Multiclassing also allows for variations of a common theme. For example, a warrior-priest could be represented by a paladin, a cleric/paladin, a cleric/fighter, a fighter/paladin, etc., with each build version possibly representing different religious orders or gods! It also becomes easier to make clones of specific characters or professions from existing works of fiction.
