This list will detail all of the class options available to a player. There are five types of classes:

  1. The base classis the standard type of class from which all other classes are based;
  2. The kit is a template applied to the base class upon character creation, otherwise they function exactly like the base class;
    • Note: Normally, only base classes can switch over to a prestige class, Specialty and Kit characters usually cannot.
  3. A prestige class begins their adventuring career as the base class, and some time after name (9th) level, they become the new class by the means described in the class description;
    • Option: At the DM's discretion, a prestige class may begin their adventuring career upon character creation. If a character is not created with a prestige class, they must wait until name level to switch over as a prestige class--the character cannot switch between 1st through 8th levels.
  4. Variant classes are similar to base classes, in that they begin their adventuring career in that class, however variants generally have very specific prerequisites to consider during character creation. Variant classes cannot prestige.
  5. Specialty classes are those with a very specific function and strict prerequisites. Specialties are held in additon to their primary class, experience points are calculated separately for each, and may not always have an associated base class.
Unless otherwise specified, each class functions exactly as they appear in their original sourced document. As always, the DM hass final say as to whether a class is availalbe in a campaign.
