They have their own set of skills, feats, talents, saves, hit dice, wealth bonus, and so on. A hero will become a specific hero, but it depends on the players in what ability they favor.
The six basic classes are: These heroes are brawny, and they greatly favor melee vrusade. Difficult to take down and can resist most sicknesses.
The typical know-it-all hero has most the skills and points. A strong intuitive hero and meccha vigilant. A hero who has a way with words and personal magnetism.

For instance, a Tough Hero can be an excellent candidate for Bodyguard or Daredevil. In later levels, the player may choose to multiclass their hero.
However, some Gamemasters GMs may have restrictions on certain advanced classes in his or her campaign. Cruszde, the advanced classes might be tougher to acquire or won’t be available.

Occupations aren’t considered classes but act as a job or career that a character holds. He or she may hold multiple occupations, but over time. There are over 19 different occupations and each with its own restrictions, such as age. As well, they open more options when choosing skills and higher Wealth bonus. The 19 occupations are: It functions just crusase any real world currency: It also defines the characters’ financial conditions, from being opulent to impoverishment.
All characters have their own wealth. Determining wealth at first level, the player rolls a four-sided die two times 2d4and then adds the results together. The result can be increased by occupation, the Windfall feat, and the Profession skill. Whenever the character advances in level, the player rolls a Profession check. These settings, unlike the rest of the book, feature the supernatural. In this setting, evil monsters, usually from one or more parallel dimensions, roam free around the world.
However, most people do not see these creatures for what they really are, seeing instead a vague approximation which is still plausible in that person’s beliefs about reality. For example, an ogre would appear to the average person as a very burly man.
