Looks really interesting at a first glance, just be careful about the Switchblade, making the Hit Die the same roll for Initiative gives them an obvious advantage over the others. You should consider replacing one of the two stats with Ego.

Good point, we'll note this and review it during further playtest! Thanks for letting us know.


Thank you for sharing this project! It's awfully inspiring, I'm already hacking the hell away from it.
