Class and Map Previews

Happy Tuesday everyone! I'm here with a few class previews, as well as a peak at the setting map. Classes and maps are still very much a work in progress, but they're coming along nicely.

First off, class previews! There are 16 classes total (one of which is still unnamed - I just can't think of what to call it!), and I'm going to preview four classes in each of these devlog posts. 

The Classes

I'm gonna go in alphabetical order! So let's start wiiiiith...

Agent. Highly trained operatives who specialize in stealth and subterfuge to fight their enemies. Think Ethan Hunt from Mission Impossible, or Altaïr from Assassin's Creed.

Animist. Watchers of nature and magic, they observe monsters and spellcasters alike to mimic their powers. This is a classic Blue Mage, if you're familiar with Final Fantasy; think Strago or Gau from Final Fantasy VI.

AristocratEither wealthy socialites from the PTC or social beacons in the Valley, they use charm and guile to further their goals. These are your rich characters who are motivated into action. More Thomas Wayne, less Bruce's Batman (though nothing's stopping them from picking up some combat skills!).

Cavalry. Whether through training or instinct, they ride into battle on the backs of their mount. These folks can have either animal mounts or MECtech mounts (MECtech is essentially technology fueled by magic instead of electricity or steam). Think the various cavalry units from the Fire Emblem series, or Terra and her Magitek armor at the start of Final Fantasy VI.

The Map

Here's a rough draft of what the maps going to look like. This is the third or fourth version, and I'm finally happy with the layout, so now I've just gotta redraw, ink, et cetera. The northern five regions surrounding the big lake form the Heartland Valley, while the southern five regions are the provinces of the Provincial Trade Coalition. Though Minted in Blood is about the Heartland Valley's fight against the PTC, that doesn't mean that members of the PTC haven't changed sides to fight for what they think is right, so characters can be from any of these regions. 

So there we have it! Thank you for taking a look at these previews. Lemme know if you have any questions, and have a wonderful week!
