Classes

Savage Worlds neither has, nor needs, character classes and I’m certainly not going to add them to what is already an excellent rule system. That being said, archetypes can provide some guidance for players when building SW characters in a D&D setting such as Dragonstar, without limiting those who want to build less than orthodox characters. Here are some sample archetypes that emulate the classes found in the original Dragonstar setting. Treat them as what they are – a quick, and easy way to help create new characters that fit in the setting when your brain is still thinking D&D.
