CLASS_TYPE_BARBARIAN 0 (STANDARD CLASS) Barbarians are brave, even reckless warriors, and their great strength and heartiness makes them well suited for adventure. Barbarians scornfully reject the fighter traditions of arms training and discipline, instead tapping into a powerful rage that makes them stronger, tougher, and better able to withstand attacks. They only have the energy for a few such displays per day, but it is usually sufficient. Constant exposure to danger also gives barbarians a sort of "sixth sense," a preternatural ability to sense danger and dodge attacks, and their running stamina is legendary.
- Hit Die: d12.
- Proficiencies: All simple and martial weapons, light armor, medium armor, and shields.
- Skill Points (Int Modifier * 4 at 1st level): 4 + Int Modifier.
- Ex-Barbarians: Barbarians are unable to progress in levels if their alignment ever becomes lawful.

REQUIREMENTS:
- Alignment: Any nonlawful.
CLASS_TYPE_BARD 1 (STANDARD CLASS) Bards often serve as negotiators, messengers, scouts, and spies. They love to accompany heroes (and villains) to witness heroic (or villainous) deeds firsthand, since a bard who can tell a story from personal experience earns renown among his fellows. A bard casts arcane spells without any advance preparation, much like a sorcerer. His magic emphasizes charms and illusions, and the bard can also play an inspiring song that strengthens him and his allies. Bards also share some specialized skills with rogues, and their knowledge of item lore is nearly unmatched.
WARNING: To cast a spell, a bard must have a Charisma score of 10 + the spell's level. For example, to cast a 3rd-level spell, a bard must have a Charisma of 13.
- Hit Die: d6.
- Proficiencies: Proficient with simple weapons. Also proficient with light armor, medium armor, and shields.
- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 4 + Int Modifier.
- Spellcasting: Arcane (Charisma-based, no spell preparation, spell failure from armor is a factor); Bards begin the game knowing all cantrips.
- Ex-Bards: Bards cannot gain levels of experience while they are of any lawful alignment.

REQUIREMENTS:
- Alignment: Any nonlawful.
CLASS_TYPE_BEAST 21 (CREATURE CLASS) A beast is a nonhistorical, vertebrate creature with a reasonably normal anatomy and no magical or unusual abilities. Almost all beasts have low-light vision and darkvision of 60 feet.
CLASS_TYPE_BLACKGUARD 31 (PRESTIGE CLASS) A Blackguard epitomizes evil. They are nothing short of a mortal fiend, a black knight with the foulest sort of reputation. Many refer to Blackguards as anti-paladins due to their completely evil nature. No one class makes the best Blackguard, all that is required is a willingness to serve the forces of darkness.
- Hit Die: d10.
- Proficiencies: All simple and martial weapons, all types of armor, and shields.

CLASS_TYPE_CLERIC 2 (STANDARD CLASS) Clerics act as intermediaries between the earthly and the divine (or infernal) worlds. A good cleric helps those in need, while an evil cleric seeks to spread his patron's vision of evil across the world. All clerics can heal wounds and bring people back from the brink of death, and powerful clerics can even raise the dead. Likewise, all clerics have authority over undead creatures, and they can turn away or even destroy these creatures. Clerics are trained in the use of simple weapons, and can use all forms of armor and shields without penalty, since armor does not interfere with the casting of divine spells. In addition to his normal complement of spells, every cleric chooses to focus on two of his deity's domains. These domains grants the cleric special powers, and give him access to spells that he might otherwise never learn.
WARNING: To cast a spell, a cleric must have a Wisdom score of 10 + the spell's level. For example, to cast a 2nd-level spell, a cleric must have a Wisdom of 12.
- Hit Die: d8.

- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 2 + Int Modifier.
- Spellcasting: Divine (Wisdom-based, spell failure from armor is ignored).
CLASS_TYPE_COMMONER 20 (CREATURE CLASS) The common folk farm the fields, staff the shops, build the homes, and produce the goods in the world around the adventurers. Commoners usually have no desire to live the dangerous life of an adventurer and none of the skills needed to undertake the challenges adventurers must face. Commoners are skilled in their own vocations and make up the majority of the population. Dungeon Master's Guide v3.5 - page 108.
CLASS_TYPE_CONSTRUCT 13 (CREATURE CLASS) An animated object or atifically constructed creature. Monster Manual v3.5 - page 307. Example: golems.
CLASS_TYPE_DIVINECHAMPION 32 (PRESTIGE CLASS) Champions of Torm are mighty warriors who dedicate themselves to Torm's cause, defending holy ground, destroying enemies of the church, and slaying mythical beasts. Torm is the patron of paladins and an unswerving enemy of corruption and evil.
- Hit Die: d10.

CLASS_TYPE_DRAGON 18 (CREATURE CLASS) A reptilelike creature, usually winged, with magical or unusual abilities. Monster Manual v3.5 - page 308. Example: adult black dragon.
CLASS_TYPE_DRAGONDISCIPLE 37 (PRESTIGE CLASS) It is rumored that the magical powers of sorcerers and bards is somehow connected to the presence of dragon blood in their family tree. Red Dragon Disciples are sorcerers, and sometimes bards, who use their magical power as a catalyst to ignite their red dragon blood, realizing its fullest potential. They prefer a life of exploration to a cloistered existence. Already adept at magic, many pursue adventure, especially if it furthers their goal of finding out more about their draconic heritage. They often feel drawn to areas known to harbor dragons.
- Hit Die: Special (see below)

CLASS_TYPE_DRUID 3 (STANDARD CLASS) Druids are divine spellcasters who receive their spells from nature, not the gods. They strive to live in harmony with the natural world, and hate anything that is not part of the natural cycle, especially aberrations and undead creatures. As they gain experience, they learn to take the shapes of animals and eventually of more powerful creatures. The strict oaths taken by every druid prohibit using weapons and armor outside their tradition.
WARNING: To cast a spell, a druid must have a Wisdom score of 10 + the spell's level. For example, to cast a 4th-level spell, a druid must have a Wisdom of 14.

CLASS_TYPE_DWARVENDEFENDER 36 (PRESTIGE CLASS) The defender is a sponsored champion of a dwarven cause, a dwarven aristocrat, a dwarven deity or the dwarven way of life. As the name might imply, this character is a skilled combatant trained in the arts of defense. A line of dwarven defenders is a far better defense than a 10-foot-thick wall of stone, and much more dangerous.
- Hit Die: d12
- Proficiencies: Simple and Martial Weapons, Light, Medium and Heavy Armor Proficiency, Shields
- Skill Points: 2 + Int Modifier.

CLASS_TYPE_FIGHTER 4 (STANDARD CLASS) Fighters can be many things, from soldiers to criminal enforcers. Some see adventure as a way to get rich, while others use their skills to protect the innocent. Fighters have the best all-around fighting capabilities of the PC classes, and they are trained to use all standard weapons and armor. A fighter's rigorous martial training grants him many bonus feats as he progresses, and high-level fighters have access to special melee maneuvers and exotic weapons not available to any other character.
- Hit Die: d10.
- Proficiencies: All simple and martial weapons, all armor, and shields.
- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 2 + Int Modifier.

Humanoids have few or no supernatural or extradordinary abilities, but most can speak and uaully have well-developed societies. Monster Manual v3.5 - page 310. Examples: bugbear, gnoll, and kobold.
CLASS_TYPE_INVALID 255 The value which represents an invalid class type.
CLASS_TYPE_MAGICAL_BEAST 23 (CREATURE CLASS) These creatures are similar to animals but can have intelligence scores higher than 2. Magical beasts usually have supernatural or extraordinary abilities, but sometimes are merely bizarre in appearance or habits. Monster Manual v3.5 - page 311. Examples: gray render, griffon, and manticore.
CLASS_TYPE_MONK 5 (STANDARD CLASS) Monks are versatile warriors skilled at fighting without weapons or armor. Good-aligned monks serve as protectors of the people, while evil monks make ideal spies and assassins. Though they don't cast spells, monks channel a subtle energy, called ki. This energy allows them to perform amazing feats, such as healing themselves, catching arrows in flight, and dodging blows with lightning speed. Their mundane and ki-based abilities grow with experience, granting them more power over themselves and their environment. Monks suffer unique penalties to their abilities if they wear armor, as doing so violates their rigid oaths. A monk wearing armor loses their Wisdom and level based armor class bonuses, their movement speed, and their additional unarmed attacks per round.
- Hit Die: d8.
- Proficiencies: Proficient with monk weapons.
- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 4 + Int Modifier.

REQUIREMENTS:
Alignment: Any lawful.
CLASS_TYPE_MONSTROUS 15 (CREATURE CLASS) UNKNOWN

CLASS_TYPE_OUTSIDER 24 (CREATURE CLASS) An outsider is at least partially composed of the essence (but not necessarily the material) of some plane other than the material plane. Some creatures start out as some other type and become outsiders when they attain a highter (or lower) state of spiritual existance. Monster Manual v3.5 - page 313. Examples: demons, earth mephit, and rakshasa.
CLASS_TYPE_PALADIN 6 (STANDARD CLASS) Paladins take their adventures seriously, and even a mundane mission is, in the heart of the paladin, a personal test - an opportunity to demonstrate bravery, to learn tactics, and to do good in the world. Divine power protects these warriors of virtue, warding off harm, protecting them from disease, healing them and their allies, and guarding against fear. Divine power also guides their sword arms, making them among the most effective warriors against undead and evil outsiders. Many of the paladin's special abilities also benefit from a high Charisma score.
WARNING: To cast a spell, a paladin must have a Wisdom score of 10 + the spell's level. For example, to cast a 2nd-level spell, a paladin must have a Wisdom of 12.
- Hit Die: d10.
- Proficiencies: All simple and martial weapons, all armor, and shields.
- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 2 + Int Modifier.
- Spellcasting: Paladin Spells. Divine (Wisdom based, armor-related chance of spell failure is ignored).
- Ex-Paladins: A paladin that is no longer lawful good cannot gain levels until their alignment is lawful good again.

REQUIREMENTS:
Alignment: Lawful good only.
CLASS_TYPE_PALEMASTER 34 (PRESTIGE CLASS) Necromancy is usually a poor choice for arcane spellcasters. Those who really want to master the deathless arts almost always pursue divine means. However, an alternative exists for those who desire power over undead, without losing too much of their arcane power. Enter the pale master, who draws on a font of special lore that provides a macabre power all its own.
- Hit Die: d6.
- Proficiencies: A pale master does not gain any additional weapon or armor proficiencies.
- Skill Points: 2 + Int Modifier.

8: Undead Graft II - Paralyze touch can be used three times a day.
9: Summon Greater Undead - Once per day spell-like ability summons a powerful undead.
10: Deathless Mastery - Immune to critical hits. Deathless Master Touch - Touch of the undead arm instantly kills (DC 17).
BONUS SPELLS
Upon reaching level 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 the character gains new spells per day as if he had also gained a level in his highest caster class (bard, sorcerer or wizard). He does not learn any new spells through this ability, however.
CLASS_TYPE_PALE_MASTER 34 Same as CLASS_TYPE_PALEMASTER.
CLASS_TYPE_PURPLE_DRAGON_KNIGHT 41 (PRESTIGE CLASS) The famous Purple Dragons of Cormyr are regarded across Faerun as exemplars of disciplined, skilled, loyal soldiers. Their reputation is deserved partly because of the heroic actions of their leaders, the Purple Dragon Knights. Purple Dragon Knights develop uncanny skills relating to coordinating and leading soldiers. Most are fighters, rangers or paladins, but a few bards, clerics, and rogues have been known to become Purple Dragon Knights. Sorcerers and Wizards tend to join the War Wizards, Cormyr's elite brigade of fighting spellcasters, while barbarians are too undisciplined, and druids and monks too "uncivilized" in Cormyr to enter this career.
- Hit Die: d10.
- Proficiencies: A purple dragon knight gains no additional proficiencIes.
- Skill Points: 2 + Int Modifier.

REQUIREMENTS:
Alignment: Non-Evil and Non-Chaotic.

5: Final Stand - +2d10 HP to a number of allies equal to Purple Dragon Knight level + Charisma Bonus, once per day.
CLASS_TYPE_RANGER 7 (STANDARD CLASS) Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy - a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions.
WARNING: To cast a spell, a ranger must have a Wisdom score of 10 + the spell's level. For example, to cast a 3rd-level spell, a ranger must have a Wisdom of 13.
- Hit Die: d10.
- Proficiencies: All simple and martial weapons, light and medium armor, and shields.
- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 4 + Int Modifier.
- Spellcasting: Ranger Spells. Divine (Wisdom based, armor-related chance of spell failure is ignored).
CLASS_TYPE_ROGUE 8 (STANDARD CLASS) Rogues have little in common with each other. While some - maybe even the majority - are stealthy thieves, many serve as scouts, spies, investigators, diplomats, and simple thugs. Rogues are versatile, adaptable, and skilled at getting what others don't want them to get. While not equal to a fighter in combat, a rogue knows how to hit where it hurts, and a sneak attack can dish out a lot of damage. Rogues also seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to avoiding danger. Experienced rogues develop nearly magical powers and skills as they master the arts of stealth, evasion, and sneak attacks. In addition, while not capable of casting spells on their own, a rogue can sometimes "fake it" well enough to cast spells from scrolls, activate wands, and use just about any other magic item.
- Hit Die: d6.
- Proficiencies: Proficient with rogue weapons and light armor. Rogues are not proficient with shields.
- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 8 + Int Modifier.
CLASS_TYPE_SHADOWDANCER 27 (PRESTIGE CLASS) Shadowdancers operate in the border between light and darkness. These nimble artists of deception are never completely trusted but always induce wonder when met. Many use their abilities to infiltrate past defenses and dupe others. Rogues and bards are the most common shadowdancers.
- Hit Die: d8.
- Proficiencies: Simple weapons and light armor.
- Skill Points: 6 + Int Modifier.

REQUIREMENTS:
Skills: Hide 10 ranks, Move Silently 8 ranks, Tumble 5 ranks.
Feats: Dodge and Mobility.

5: Defensive Roll - Avoid death with a reflex save. Uncanny Dodge 2 - +1 reflex saving throws.
7: Slippery Mind - Failed Will saving throw gets automatic reroll.
10: Improved Evasion - Failed reflex saving throws result in only half damage. Uncanny Dodge 3 - +2 reflex saving throws.
CLASS_TYPE_SHAPECHANGER 25 (CREATURE CLASS) A shapechanger has the supernatural ability to assume one or more alternate forms. Many magical effects allow some kind of shape shifting, and not evry creature that can change shapes is a shapechater. Monster Manual v3.5 - page 314. Examples: barghest and lycanthropes.
CLASS_TYPE_SHOU_DISCIPLE 40 NOTE: This class is not defined (all *s) in the classes.2da file.
CLASS_TYPE_SHIFTER 35 (PRESTIGE CLASS) A shifter has no form they call their own. Instead, they cloth themselves in whatever shape is most expedient at the time. While others base their identities largely on their external forms, the shifter actually comes closer to their true self through all of their transformations. Of necessity, their sense of self is based not on their outward form, but on their soul, which is truly the only constant about them. It is the inner strength of that soul that enables them to take on any shape and remain themselves within.
- Hit Die: d8.
- Proficiencies: A shifter does not gain any additional weapon or armor proficiencies.
- Skill Points: 4 + Int Modifier.

REQUIREMENTS:
Feats: Alertness, Wildshape
Spellcasting: Level 3 or higher.

5: Greater Wildshape III - Can change into a drider, basilisk and manticore, gaining some of the creatures special abilities three times per day.
7: Infinite Greater Wildshape II - Can use Greater Wildshape II unlimited times per day. Humanoid Shape - Can change into humanoid type creatures three times per day.
10: Greater Wildshape IV - Can change into medusa, huge dire tiger and mindflayer forms, gaining some of the creatures special abilities three times per day. Infinite Greater Wildshape III - Can use Greater Wildshape III unlimited times per day.
CLASS_TYPE_SORCERER 9 (STANDARD CLASS) Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories - just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons.
WARNING: To cast a spell, a sorcerer must have a Charisma score of 10 + the spell's level. For example, to cast a 9th-level spell, a sorcerer must have a Charisma of 19.
- Hit Die: d4.
- Proficiencies: All simple weapons. Sorcerers are not proficient with armor or shields.
- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 2 + Intelligence Modifier.
- Spellcasting: Arcane (Charisma-based, no spell preparation, spell failure from armor is a factor).

CLASS_TYPE_WIZARD 10 (STANDARD CLASS) Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells; everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar: a small, magical, creature that serves her.
WARNING: To cast a spell, a wizard must have a Intelligence score of 10 + the spell's level. For example, to cast a 9th-level spell, a wizard must have a Intelligence of 19.
- Hit Die: d4.
- Proficiencies: Proficient with wizard weapons. Wizards are not proficient with armor or shields.
- Skill Points (*4 at 1st level): 2 + Int Modifier.
- Spellcasting: Arcane (Intelligence-based, spell preparation is required, spell failure from armor is a factor); wizards begin the game knowing all cantrips and four 1st-level spells.
