Battle Miner[edit]

I'm no stranger to the ways of mining. You don't have to fear the monsters and raiders of the Underdark, if you know how to deal with them.
—Steve, Human Battle Miner, Journal Entry

Battle Miners are commoners that work the mines. They delve deeper then most, mining precious metals from deep in the Underdark. They don't fear the oozes, drow, and other monsters. They gain abilities not only to help them mine, but also to help them in combat.

Becoming a Battle Miner[edit]

Battle Miners value strength and constitution. Both are needed to be an effective miner and warrior. Most often this class is taken on by Npc commoners who work deep in the mines. Its something you have to learn down there, in the dark.

They gain a "Natural Cunning" ability similar to that of a Minotaur. They also know where they are while in the Underdark, and know where which passage will take them, provided they have been there before.
