    Amazon
    The amazon trains with the shield maidens at the shrine atop Mount Neverest. Unlike her smaller training partners, the amazon prefers a weapon to be swung with both of her massive arms so she can make the best use of her pure, brute strength.

    Bonuses: STRENGTH, HEALTH, ATTACK POWER*

    *13-15 = Pretty Strong
    16-18 = Super Strong
    19 = OP

    Shield Maiden
    The shield maiden tries to be as pure as The Maiden Herself. Though her arm is nothing next to that of her amazon friend, her defensive skill with a shield is unsurpassed. As her fighting style leaves her back much more exposed than her front, the shield maiden prefers to be on the frontline. She'll risk it all to protect an ally.

    Bonuses: HEALTH, DEFENSE, SHIELD TACTICS*

    *Use your shield to protect an ally.
    *If you're hit by an attack, use the shield to counterattack. If you out-roll your attacker, you'll not only negate damage, but…
    …if the attack is melee, you'll stun your attacker.
    …if the attack is ranged, you can block multiple projectiles fired from the same direction.
    …if the attack is magic, your shield will absorb the spell!

    Pixie
    There have been sightings of tiny, winged women on the peak of Mount Neverest and deep in the forests of Roku-Roku Island. A maiden from the shrine believes that these are angelic creatures sent by the purest of the young goddesses.

    Bonuses: AGILITY or FLIGHT, STEALTH, extra DEFENSE, and MAGIC
    Limitations: low HEALTH, especially for winged pixies, and STRENGTH and AIM are irrelevant

    Huntress
    Sent into the wilderness of Roku-Roku with only a hunting bow and a blade, the Huntress has carved food, shelter and clothing from her kills. She keeps her distance from civilization, and in battle, she keeps her distance from her enemies. Those who befriend the Huntress can expect to be treated to a freshly killed beast. To refuse this treat is an insult.

    Vegetarians have a hard time making friends with a Huntress.

    Bonuses: STEALTH, AIM, HUNTING GEAR*

    *Roll 10-20: can opt to set a trap. If an enemy steps in the trap, he needs to out-roll the trap's roll to avoid getting caught. In the wilderness, the enemy must out-roll the trap's roll by 5.
    *Roll 16-19: can add POWER or an EFFECT to a shooting attack, or can shoot two enemies.

    Fighting Nun
    A fighting nun uses a graceful fighting style that is much like a dance. Her fists, feet, elbows, knees, forehead and her backside make up her arsenal. Her speed, grace and faith are her armor. Though her vow never to rely on steel makes her appear defenseless, and though she will likely bow to those who aid her in battle, it is clear to anyone who has seen a fighting nun in action: she is no damsel in distress.

    Fighting nuns tend to be ATHLETIC.

    Preacher
    The preacher has been asking for answers. Why have so many of his flock gone astray? Why do the monsters come, and why do men falter when they attack? As he removes the Hand Cannon from the holster concealed in his long coat, he receives his answer. Not from the voice of his deity. Not some vague sign waiting to be interpreted. His answer comes in the form of a shadowy figure.

    He aims his weapon at the demon's head. Shoot first. Ask questions later.


    Preachers may use weapons, fists or magic to fight evil, but it's RAPPORT that fills the seats at their temples.

    Samurai
    The samurai is never a braggart, nor does he brandish a sword when there is no battle. When challenged, the samurai will not talk about which warrior is stronger. He will simply meet the challenger with his katana still in its scabbard. The challenger will see who is strongest when he sees the samurai draw his blade—the same moment in which the challenger's head rises above his neck.

    Bonuses: STEALTH, AIM and QUICK-DRAW ATTACKS*

    *1+ = Mae (vs. an enemy in front of you - 2 weak hits)
    10+ = Ushiro (vs. an enemy who approaches from behind - 2 hits)
    11+ = Ukenagashi (deflect an attack + strike the enemy who attacked you)
    12+ = Tsuka-ate (vs. 2 enemies - one ahead, one behind)
    13+ = Kesa-giri (vs. 1 enemy - 2 strong hits)
    14+ = Morote-zuki (vs. 2 enemies, or vs. 3 if the first two fall)
    15+ = Sampo-giri (vs. 3 enemies)
    16+ = Ganmen-ate (vs. 2 enemies w/ stun)
    17+ = Soete-zuki (vs. hidden enemy - instant death or "half-death" …if there is a hidden enemy)
    18+ = Shiho-giri (vs. 4 enemies)
    19+ = So-giri (vs. 1 enemy - 5 hits)
    20+ = Nuki-uchi (vs. 1 enemy - instant death or "half-death" + sheathe katana)

    Brawler

    The heavyweight brawler uses his large, calloused fists for self-defense, prize-fighting, bounty-hunting or just for the fun of it. What he lacks in skill, he makes up for when he lifts one guy over his head and throws that guy at another guy. He hates to carry weapons, but love to grab a heavy object to swing or throw at someone who's earned more than just a punch…

    Though if he doesn't like you, a punch from a heavyweight brawler usually means you can forget about having corn on the cob for dinner.


    He's no weakling. But unlike his heavyweight sparring partner, the lightweight brawler knows there are bigger and stronger opponents out there. When it comes to one-on-one, he likes to end the fight quickly with a skillful submission hold. When it comes to using his fists against a crowd, the lightweight has no qualms about enhancing his punch with a .


    Brawlers aren't the handsomest fellows, yet few will deny their PHYSIQUE is impressive.

    Pirate
    While he's not particularly trustworthy or nearly as skillful a swordsman as a samurai, no one knows his way around the sea better than a pirate. Whether he has a heart of gold or would cut yours for it varies from one pirate to the next. But there's one thing all pirates agree upon:

    It's fun to be a pirate.


    Even the good pirates know how to BURGLARIZE.

    Mentalist
    The mentalist is the smartest person in the room and he knows it. He might let you know it, too. Or he might play dumb, or charm you into trusting him, or make it abundantly clear where you stand in his mind's eye by pulling a banana out of your ass in front of a crowd.


    Mentalists can read minds, but there's no way to turn the skill off, which makes a mentalist more prone to mental stress. (-1 to mental stress)

    They typically NOTICE what most tend to miss.
