Roleplaying game classes, there are rpg systems that involve classes for their player characters. Examples include fighter, magic-user, thief, etc. Dungeons and Dragons and respective derivatives are ones that lead the way with player character classes. Other systems, like Basic Roleplaying, GURPS or Savage Worlds are more generic. In those games you typically build your player character using a concept the player chooses and you use points to build them into what you want versus placing them in a specific bucket. While we don’t get into each game, we do bring about discussion around both. What’s your take?
