The classes players can be are:
a combination type --
pick one from each column:
primary or | secondary
fighting | or trade
Warrior | Supplier
Thief | Wright
Cleric | Smith
Mage | Traveler
so a char could be class Mage/Smith or Thief/Wright or
Warrior/Smith or Mage/Traveler or Warrior/Supplier,
and so on.
or a single type only
-- Paladin, Ranger, Ninja, or Trader.
Paladin, Ranger, Ninja, and Trader are specialized
classes already containing skills from 2 or more other
types and/or having special skills and do not get to
choose a second class type to be.
The trade types may only be selected as a secondary class,
except for Trader, a special case business only class.
Traders have some of the skills of the other trade
classes, many specialized skills, and no fighting skills.
