Classes

Classes are an additional way to customize your character, besdies just race. Classes might be like an occupation, or a type of history, for your character. Characters can only have one class.

A character with a class will gain a unique class-specific talent. (Characters that do not have this class can not learn the class-specific talent!) The class-specific talent starts at a d6, and can be upgraded when a character levels up just like any other talent.

When a character reaches Level 5, their class gains a new special talent unique to the class! This new talent starts at d6.

A character's class decides the character's Chip Type. When a character fails any roll, they will add this type of chip to the Communal Pile.

Finally, every class has a Chip Bonus Ability- which is an ability that can be activated by spending chips from the Communal Pile. Chips can always be used to add modifiers to Trait Rolls, by any character or the GM, but the Chip Bonus Ability lets players utilize chips in other fashions.
