Cleric

is defensively orientated. Most of their spells focus on healing or defending the faithful, with their few combat spells being far less powerful than those of mages. However, clerics are the best class by far at healing magics, and they posess an impressive range of protective magics, as well as fair combat prowess. All clerics begin with skill in the mace. Other weapon or shield skills must be purchased, many at a very dear cost. The default skill selection for clerics is as follows: skills: flail the proper use of flails spell groups: attack a selection of offensive magics creation the making of physical objects, such as food and water curative spells that cure the sick and feeble of their ailments benedictions powerful magics that grant the blessings of the gods detection informational magics, such as detect magic and identify healing spells for treating wounds, from scratches to death blows maladictions an assortment of curses protective defensive magics, including the powerful sanctuary spell transportation spells for getting from here to there weather spells for conjuring and mastering the elements

Thief

is a mixture of talents. They do few things better than other classes, but have a wide range of skills available. Thieves are of course specialists at thievery and covert actions, being capable of entering areas undetected where more powerful adventurers would fear to tread. They are better fighters than clerics, but lack the wide weapon selection of warriors. All thieves begin with the dagger combat skill, and are learned in steal as well. Any other weapon skills must be purchased, unless the default selection is chosen. This default skill package includes: skills: mace the use of maces and other blunt weapons sword swordplay and fencing backstab the art of hitting your opponent by surprise disarm used to deprive your opponent of his weapon dodge the best way to take a punch is not to be there second attack with training, the skilled thief can hit twice as fast trip a good way to introduce an opponent to the floor hide the art of remaining undetected in a room peek used to look into a person's belongings pick lock a useful skill for breaking and entering sneak with this skill, a thief can walk into a room undetected

Warrior

lives for combat and the thrill of battle. They are the best fighters of all the classes, but lack the subtle skills of thieves and the magical talents of mages and priests. Warriors are best for those who prefer taking the direct approach, even when another method might be called for. Warriors begin with skill in the sword, and gain a second attack in combat. Other weapon skills may be purchased cheaply, or gained in the default skill package, which includes the following: skills: weaponsmaster this group provides knowledge of all weapon types shield block the art of parrying with a shield bash a forceful rush with the body, designed to flatten your foes enhanced damage this skill multiplies your damage in battle parry the art of parrying with weapons rescue allows you to take the blows aimed for a companion third attack allows the skilled warrior to land three blows in one round

Necromancer

s are mages that have turned to the twisted arts of Necromancy, the art of magically achieving some purpose by communication with the spirits of the dead.
