Available Hybrid Classes
Prestige Class Notes
Prestige Classes usually fall under one of three categories.
- A class that merges two classes
- A class that specializes in an area or grants unique abilities
- A class that represents an organization
For the first option, Hybrid classes are available and more can easily be crafted from their example. They can be made upon request or built by the player and submitted for review.
For the second option, a narrow specialty could be converted into a class variant to a base class.
For the final option, your GM has a distaste for class-mandated social rank, or classes that require a social rank be reached before the class is available. One is unfair to the GM, the other unfair to the player. If the class has interesting mechanics, see the notes on the second option. Otherwise no organization will have a unique class.
