Playable Classes and Races
WHAT YOU CAN PLAY
Humans. These motherfuckers are everywhere. They are the dominant race and the dominant culture in Throne. All other races have been conquered and subjugated by the humans. If you choose this race, you’ll be playing the Variant version.
Elves and Half-Elves. you can play them, but most likely you’ll be an ex-slave with the ‘free’ tattoo on your neck. You’ll be treated like shit by the majority of humans wherever you go. Most other elves or half-elves are slaves or servants to the human elite, living lives of squalor and sadness.
Dwarves. You can be a dwarf, too, but again, you can play them, but most likely you’ll be an ex-slave with the ‘free’ tattoo on your neck. You’ll be treated like shit by the majority of humans wherever you go. Most other dwarves are slaves or servants to the human elite, living lives of squalor and sadness.
Half-Orc. You really looking for some punishment, aren’t you? Not only are you not human, you’re half orc, the mothefuckers who have been fucking with the people of Throne for centuries. Half-orcs are usually greeted with violence by the humans, unless associated with a company. Even then, the company that associates with a half-orc is a company that will be ostracized by others.
Fighter. Fighters are the staple of the Arenas, the armies, the companies, and the city guards. Your PC will probably be part of a company, dude.
Rogue. These peeps are everywhere. Whether scouts, spies, thieves, burglars, brigands, or assassins, these people come in all shapes and forms.
Paladin and Cleric. If you’re playing a paladin or a cleric, you’ll be playing one that serves Reohm. In rare cases paladins and clerics have been known to don the Crier brooch in the name of Reohm and Throne.
Druid and Ranger and Barbarian. These dudes can be from any terrain on Throne. Some belong to companies that protect Thrones baronies, while some live out in the wild by themselves.
Bard. Some bards are Criers, but not all Criers are bards. either way, these fools travel from city to city reciting the Canticles of Throne, using their magic to enhance their stories and songs.
Wizard. Wizards are either Custodians, Criers, or Arena Mages. Very few have learned magic outside of the Conservatory. Those that have are usually killed. Ya know, they don’t want the Corruption to get out of hand again.
WHAT YOU CAN’T PLAY
No halfings. Thy didn’t make the boat ride. In fact, halflings are considered to be a mythic race as no one has seen one for thousands of years.
No gnomes. They were killed by the dragons who ended up taking their shape as a disguise.
No dragonborn and no sorcerers. Not in Throne anyway. Dragons didn’t mate with other races in Throne because they were pretending to be gnomes. And no one has sex with gnomes. But maybe in the Old Kingdoms or in some undiscovered lands of the world.
No tieflings and no warlocks. Not in Throne anyway. There could be some in the Old Kingdoms because that’s where the devils were last seen. Oh yeah. if Tieflings exist, they’d be half devil.
No monks. Just ‘cause it doesn’t make sense.
