Potential Class List: (wip)
Asskicker (Fighter, Knight, Swashbuckler, Warblade, Samurai, Marshall) You kill people for money, either because it's the only skill you have or you really get off on it. You may offer the world more, but sadly all it sees is a man who can only use violence to solve his problems.
Berserker (aka Barbarian) You has anger management issues. You don't have skill so much as blind, frothing rage. Optionally you may also be possessed. Either way, sane people give you a wide berth. But you get the occasional freebie offered to you to make you go away.
Blind Fanatic (aka Paladin, Crusader, Sohei, soulborn) You believe in the One True Thing enough to be willing to murder the whole world if it's necessary for the cause. Unfortunately for society, none of you agree on the One True Thing, so you're the center of a helluva lotta criminal investigations.
Catspaw (aka Dragon Shaman, Warlock) You've cut a deal with something and agreed to serve it in exchange for power. And maybe a pet critter. All it asks is that you further it's cause, occasionally play fetch, and mebbe venture to the Astral Plane to check it for ghost ticks. But hey, you look really cool spitting fire.
Crook (aka Rogue, Ninja, Scout) You're a criminal, or work for the gummint (which is just another kind of criminal). You lie, cheat, steal and sabotage your way to power basically. Not that everyone doesn't but you went to school for it.
Environmentalist (aka Druid) You talk to trees and animals, and thanks to your magic they talk back (and are kind enough not to mention your lack of social skills). You have the options of being a summoner, healer, eco-warrior, pet lord or caster. You also spend lots of time alone in the wilderness, and as a result you might have a slight touch of the crazy.
Backwoods Racist (Ranger) You reeeaally, really hate things not like you.
Librarian: (aka Archivist) You might look prim and harmless, but you know everyone's secret shit. Many of you are secretly professional dommes or extortionists on the side.
Mad Scientist You may not have friends, but you can always make some...literally. Plus since your gadgets can be mass produced your mooks are always loyal cause they get the niftiest toys.
Magic Asskicker (aka Duskblade, Hexblade, Psychic Warrior, Soulknife) You've either learned a bit of magic or come by it due to a family curse and decided "Why shouldn't I use this to whoop ass and make money?"
Magic Crook (aka Beguiler, Spellthief, Lurk, Psychic Rogue) Unlike most crooks you start with some minor magical powers (as opposed to hurriedly learning them later out of necessity).
Martial Artist (aka Monk, Swordsage) You might not be a crazy old man living on a mountain yet, but your destiny points in that direction strongly.
Priest (aka Cleric, Shugenja) You lead people in worship of some Gawd or other. Everyone loves you to your face while making jokes about you being a pedo or a sheep rapist behind your back. One of these days you'll lose your shit and ask said Gawd to whoop some ass. Which they may do anyway seeing as the Gawds are basically all candidates for the Jerry Springer show. Less of the traditional DND war priest and more cloistered cleric.
Psychic (aka Binder) You allow yourself to be possessed for a fee, or for your religion, or because you have some serious issues. There's a lot of frauds who claim to be mediums, but sadly you are the real thing. We say sadly because when you manage to call up someone's dead loved one they inevitably say something like "Yer a useless shite son. Ye've always been a useless shite, ye'll always be a useless shite, and I long for the day when yer burnin' in Hell next to me."
Shaman (aka Spirit Shaman, totemist). You keep telling people you can see the spirits. They might believe you if you'd stop eating shrooms and peyote.
Pervert (sorcerer, wilder, Dragonfire Adept) One or your parents had an interspecies fetish polite society frowns on. Because of it you now have super powers, and are the target of significant social discrimination. People just seem to believe horrible things abotu you with no proof necessary, and it doesn't help that you burn down the occasional town in a fit of pique.
Street Performer (Bard, Jester) You're an attention whore who refuses to make an honest living.
Wrassler There is no problem so great it cannot be hammerlocked into submission.
Clown: Vile entity from beyond space and time.
Conduit: Magic or psionic Buffs have a greater than normal effect on you, and you have a chance to convert enemy spells/powers into self buffs.
Lab Experiment: You ARE frankenstein's monster. You weren't born so much as made. And people still won't accept you as a sentient being, no matter how many of them you make stop living with your fist.
Demigod: (Favored Soul) You have divine blood in the family, and an all powerful relative who makes your life hell.
Psion: Specialist in one of the Psionic Disciplines.
Wizard: (Wizard, Dread Necromancer, warmage, wu jen) Specialist in one of the magic schools.
Saint: (healer) You are a healer despite no connection to any religion. Plus animals like you. Others in general find you difficult to hate, mostly because you're supposedly forbidden from giving them the ass beating they deserve.
Murderhobo: The scourge of society, you are a self-absorbed rambler whose every action inevitably leads to mass destruction. Damage rolls are higher when you are near, tempers flare more easily, area of effect powers affect a bigger area. It's not something you do consciously (not that anyone believes that), it's just that a black cloud of destruction and despair follows you.
Factotum: You are whatever you need to be at the moment. Usually so you can point at the party when you all get caught and say "I'm not with them."
Avatar: (ardent, incarnate) You embody some cosmic principle, cause or other thingie.
Shadowcaster: You have learned to manipulate shadows in not nice ways.
Speaker: (Truenamer) You are slowly relearning the language of creation that was forbidden to mortals by the gods.
Smith: (Artificer) You make really neat stuff.
Runescribe: While Speakers learn the spoken version of the language of creation, you learn the written.
