Outlier Character Class: Because you're no hero!

I put together another class to fit my gaming group. Upon reflection, the ranger adaption from Crawl #6 does a solid job of bringing that class to DCC, but I just don't think the ranger concept fits comfortably in the DCC "you're no hero" philosophy.

With that in mind, I mashed together some of the classic ranger abilities with those of the bandit from Dragon Magazine #63 (Woooo! 1982!) and cobbled together what I call an outlier.

Let me know what you think. I'm slowly working towards my first DCC Zine.

I love this- always thought the alignment restriction in AD&D was weird, but this settles it!

I am glad you like it Fenris! I appreciate you taking a moment to say so (both here and on G+).



Also, based upon feedback from folks on the G+, I adjusted the HP/Level to 1d8 and removed the Luck Die from Table 1: Outlier (which was a typo). Both the blog post and google doc have been updated to reflect these changes.
