    All the classes?

    ALL of them?



    Well, you can start here:
    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...dventurerIsYou

    And then check this:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categor...racter_classes

    And that's just for D&D. There's a bazillion other RPGs out there, and some of them don't eve use classes at all.
    Imagine if all real-world conversations were like internet D&D conversations...

    Well, there's this:

    Base class index and this: Prestige Class index. I think that qualifies as "a lot".

    Can you define what constitutes a "class"? It's kind of a nebulous term. Do the various Castes from Exalted count? Lifepaths from Burning Wheel? The various playbooks from Apocalypse World?

    And that's just tabletop "RPGs". Do you also mean from vidja games, board games, TCGs, and so on?

    Rogue Trader has:

    Arch-Militant, Astropath, Explorator, Missionary, Navigator, Seneschal, Voidmaster.

    Deathwatch has:

    Apothecary, Assault Marine, Chaplain, Devastator, Librarian, Tac-Marine, Tech Marine.


    Should I start counting down Shadowrun editions as well? Because, really, I could go on almost forever.

    Then you should know there's a good chance quite a few of these are copyrighted or trademarked terms.

    The list of OCCs in the Rifts Game Master's Guide is several pages long, and now about 5-10 years old.

    Making an MMORPG is the easy part. Putting up the infrastructure to support it is orders of magnitude harder. Can you elaborate on how you plan on pulling this off? Your posts are too short and vague to allow us to help you better. This isn't chat; you can take your time to format your posts so we can understand them better.

    Maybe he doesn't need our help outside this very specific question? It might not be conductive to derail the thread with things he didn't ask help for.

    Anyways, one real concern with having many classes is that you need a massively complex system to support them all. Balance is going to be a crapshoot as well. But those are problems for when he's actually picked what classes to use.

    @Frozen_Feet:Yeah,actually I was gonna start a separate thread sometime and elaborate on the whole thing there and ask for ideas from all playgrounders.

    I definitely don't expect this to be off the ground soon,as I will have to continuosly playtest to balance like you said.Anyways,I want the world to be huge.

    Another thing is I don't think I'm gonna release all the classes at once;I'm going to be testing them in the background and have them released as updates.I don't
    want expansions,as I want everyone to be at the same pace.Anyways,I'm not in this for the money.

    Bishop, Lord, Valkyrie and Gadgeteer from the Wizardry computer game series (also has it's own take on many things, check the Samurai and Ranger out).

    (look in the character build pages)
    http://www.zimlab.com/wizardry/flame...trykes_w8.html



    EDIT: and I suppose that's more metagame analysis, so:

    Bishop, Master of none, but capable of all harnessing all magics. Such broad "specialization" costs the price of less skill unless they ignore one or more of the varieties of magic (here, Alchemy, Magery, Psionics, and Divine).

    Lord: Dual Wielding Paladin-esque character. Wears heavy armor and heals naturally over time (at first level, it's like 1hp a minute). Also gain access to Divine magic later on.

    Valkyrie: Pole-arm and Mace wielder. Has the ability to cheat death (if they would die, they might randomly be reduced to one hitpoint and unconsciousness) gain divine magic eventually.

    Gadgeteer: creator of magitek implements, essentially assembling scrap into things that imitate spells, also tinkers with his personal omni-gun, a crude firearm that eventually is capable of firing practically anything you put into it.

    Samurai: Kind of the standard fare, except they randomly my Lightning Strike (essentially, 3 or so combat rounds occuring simultaneously, only for attacks though). Eventually get access to mage spells.

    Ranger: access to alchemy eventually, able to search at no penalty on the move (and always searching) can shoot while blind... Ranged Criticals (instant kills here).
