Character Classes

Your class is the primary definition of what your character can do in the extraordinary magical landscape of the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS world. A class is more than a profession; it is your character's calling. Your class choice shapes every action you take as you adventure across a spell-tangled, monster-ridden, battle-torn fantasy world. Will you be a gutsy, youthful sword fighter? A pact-sworn warlock with questionable ties? A gods-worshiping cleric who knows too much? A flamboyant rogue with a dagger up your sleeve? A tattooed wizard with a crystal staff? The choice is yours.

Toril is riddled with threats of voracious appetite, ancient animosity, and malevolent purpose. Confronting such adversaries requires potent powers and abilities capable of penetrating scale and shield while offering protection from fang and curse. Arrayed against those threats are the classes found in the Player's Handbook. The FORGOTTEN REALMS Player's Guide expands upon the Player's Handbook classes and paragon paths with additional selections designed with the geographical, historical, political, and cosmological nature of Toril in mind.
