You need an Other category, since you didn't include paladin, sorcerer, barbarian, or any of a whole mess of other classes. And Zero level doesn't necessarily mean human.

Sage.

Professionally, I am consulted by people who require my expert knowledge and pay me for the consultation. That's pretty much exactly how sages work in the Realms.

In the real world, they call me an attorney-at-law.

I had to choose other, as I picture "myself" as being a former Thayan bounty hunter, both fighter and mage, turned artifact by the spellplague... primarily appearing as a floating/talking book, often seen with a pompous historian turned sai, named Lorey, floating beside him. I didn't see that in the buttons.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

What kind of weird mechanics/classes is this?

I see myself as a Hoplite.

So why are Druids, effectively nature priests, separate from Clerics, and assassins separate from thieves when both are aspects of the rogue class? This just seems like a mishmash of classes; "Sage" isn't a class outside of Final Fantasy. It's a role or job description that the expert (or an Int-based class with Knowledge skills as class skills) pretty much accomplishes.

There are 11 core classes in the game, which would have given you one left over (for alternate classes [warlock, samurai, ninja, healer, warmage, etc] or Pathfinder classes).

Basically I use the Advanced base classes then fill in the gaps, illusionist is a specialist class in later versions, Specialist cleric would be one of the many clerical other classes favoured soul, etc...

Seems no one is a Cleric Druid Paladin or Monk anyway.

Ranger/wizard. Dwarf of course.

If I waited till I knew what I was doing, I'd never get anything done.

Wizard. So I can wear a really cool-looking hat. Rolling four-sided dice for everything isn't such a big limitation when you have dwarven buddies.

I'm inclined to be a reclusive Ranger these days...rarely contacting the world at all. I come to "the Keep" to look for old maps (from Markustay and others) and search out lore about various locations I want to explore.

AD&D for me!
