Making a Weapon Shifter
Some strong points of this class is that they are a heavy hitter, the only problem with that is that most if not all have a partner to corespond with them.
Abilities: Strength is a necessity for this class being a weapon and all. Constitution and Wisdom are both very good to have with this class too, because they will take a lot of hits and they will have to know their way around a battlefield.
Races: 95% of the time, Shifters are human.
Starting Gold: 100.
Starting Age: Same as Fighters, some people even say that a Weapon Shifter will die the same day as their Miester unless they have reason to believe that they will rise once more.

Playing a Weapon Shifter
Religion: Weapon Shifters can be of any religion or faith, and they don't care about other peoples' worships.
Other Classes: It depends on what type(s) of weapon this character is, if the weapon fits that class, they become friendly towards them, if the weapon doesn't fit the class, then they well slightly resent them.
Combat: The Weapon.
Advancement: Usually all Shifters have a similar goal in mind, to become a Death Scythe. To do this, they must absorb/eat exactly 99 evil (allignment) souls, and 1 lich soul. If a Shifter were too eat more than this total, eat them in the wrong order, or eat another type of soul, the souls counting towards this would be forfeit.
