Preparing for some actual play in Xuh’lan has given me reason to think about the character generation again. I’ve decided to re-instate classes, despite what I wrote earlier. These are the classes I’m thinking about including:
Fighter Works as usual.
Psionic Adept Another name for Magic-users more in line with science fantasy tropes. The Witch Stones will still remain as a tempting fast route to power for those not gifted with psionic abilities, or simply too impatient to go the slow route of training and studying.
Technician This will be a reinterpretation of the Cleric class inspired by this idea on Strange Magic.
I may also include a Psionic Warrior class based on the Elves racial class. Perhaps there will be Thieves, but probably not.
I’m also thinking about ditching the skill-system, but havent really decided yet.
