Seeing this and coincidentally working on an Anchorome Campaign Guide is a cool coincidence and I think it's a good thing to debate. I have some thoughts about what I want to do, but I'm not set on any of this yet. I also started a new thread, because I am going to expand it a bit to character options that are beyond the Azuposi into the purely fanon NW of Anchorome which has a more Native American feel. I'd like to see what you think. This is my tentative thoughts.thorr-kan wrote: ↑Mon Oct 15, 2018 10:45 pmRogue kits or subclasses?
The Character Creation appendix has the following section in the general kit overviews:
"SKILL PROGRESSION: This entry is included for rogue kits only. It determines how many discretionary points each kit allows the character. Because the Azuposi do not have locks, mechanical traps, pockets, or written language, rogues have only the following skills (equivalent to a thiefs): hear noise, hide in shadows, move silently, and climb walls. As with thieves, only half the discretionary points gained with a level can be used on any one skill."
The Rogue Kits section says:
"Two things are peculiar about Azuposi culture: First, they tend to live in very small communities, and second, they have only a rudimentary sense of the meaning of private property. This combination makes the possibility of widespread professional thievery (the mainstay of the AD&Dfi game rogue class) highly unlikely.
"But the Azuposi communities do have their roguish members: clowns (koyemshis), traders, and fetishists. These are the only types
of rogues to be found in the Azuposi society."
None of the kits specifically call out anything but rogue. They significantly change the thief's skills and points for those skills. So are they classes described as kits, like the priest kits, or are they kits that are available to an rogue (OK, base assumption would be thief or bard)?
