Day two of the D&D XP Seminar brings a discussion on class design. Again, En World provides a wonderful paraphrased summary of the event.
Class Design: From Assassins to Wizards
Friday; 12:30 to 2PM EST
Designers Monte Cook, Bruce Cordell, and Robert Schwalb discuss their approach to class design, including the difficulties in creating iconic versions of the classes that speak to players of all editions. Should the cleric be more martial or more healer? Does the default ranger have an animal companion? What level of complexity should the fighter have? Seminar to be followed by a Q&A session.
