 Classes

A Class is the profession or vocation of your character. It determines what he or she is able to do: combat training, magical ability, skills, and more. In selecting what class is right for your character, keep in mind what base strengths you want him or her to have. The eleven basic selections can approximate most any character concept.

Class Packages

With each class, comes several "Packages". These packages customise your character similarly to the Kits in Baldur's Gate 2. They don't have any abilities outside those of the standard class however, but the extremely flexible and powerful 3red Edition ruleset utilised by Neverwinter Nights may be too complex for some people's taste. Therefore Bioware have included these packages so that the task of levelling up and assigning stats is done for you, in the optimal place for your character type.

These packages DO NOT GIVE ANY SPECIAL ABILITIES to you character, they simply configure your skills and feats so you don't have to.

Base Save Bonus: The two numbers given in this column apply to saving throws. Whether a character uses the first or second number depends on their class and what type of saving throw is being attempted. See each individual class description to find which bonuses apply to which category of saves.

Base Attack Bonus: On an attack roll, apply the bonus from the appropriate column according to class. Numbers after a slash indicate additional attacks at reduced bonuses. For example, "+12/+7/+2" means the character gets three attacks per round, with a base attack bonus of +12, +7, and +2 for the first, second, and third attack respectively. For Multi-classed characters, the base attack bonuses for each class are cumulative.
