Classes

Classes of Underworld

Underworld has 9 base classes to choose from, each with their own costs when it comes to purchasing skills with CP. By no means should you feel you need to comply with the title of your class. A mercenary can be a well-read pacifist, a mage can be a sneaky thief, and a bard can be a bloodthirsty warrior. 

Any class can purchase almost any skill outside of occupational skills. To learn more about each class' individual skills as well as a wide variety of other skills you can add to your character, see the "Occupations and Abilities" and the "Skills and Descriptions" sections of the Core Rulebook
