Classes – we have eight of them by now. But you know what? There will be more. There will be Hunters. The great thing about Orc Hunters is that contrary to popular belief, they’re not cannibals. Which means you can make them a member of your party without being afraid that it will soon be a one-man band. Oh, and of course they are fierce warriors!
Hunters are well-known for their fierceness, their resistance and their endurance. And hell, they know how to handle that spear!
The class that will never go hungry ...
Instead of other Orcs, the Hunter’s diet is actually based heavily on the principle of “you caught it, you cook it”. Hunting provides the bulk of their diet. Orc Hunters, as all other Orcs, are also fierce warriors, capable of surviving on their own in the wild for weeks, or even years.
- Indomitable: Orcs get an additional safety roll to avoid the conditions “Paralyzed”, “Sleeping”, Poisoned”, “Feebleminded”, “Weak” and “Cursed”.
- Fierce: Critical damage is increased.
(Edit: since there are no Demons in the game, the Orc specialty "Demon Slayer" has been removed. My bad, thanks for the hint, Jsebela!)
Here’s how the Hunter’s skills are distributed (start skills are Spear and Dodge):
The Advanced Class of the Hunter
When Orc Hunters start bringing back more than just meat from their hunting trips, trifles such as jewels, gold, swords and captives, they are given a new title that honors their new status. They are called Marauders, and the best amongst them become heroes of legend, because of the spectacular stories they are able to tell upon their return.
The Marauder’s active ability: “Crippling Trap”
Marauders are nifty trappers. They can place a crippling trap on the party’s current tile that deals a substantial amount of damage to all monsters who enter that tile.
Why would you want to have a Hunter in your party?
First of all: he or she won’t eat any of their party members. Promised. Instead, your Hunter will pierce every enemy that comes across with a spear very thoroughly. And in case no Spear is available – they’re also able to deal substantial damage with a bow, dagger or mace. Also, magical attacks don’t impress them a lot.
