Text from Nautical Nights; also used in Book of Engoku
This “Monster” isn’t really a Monster at all. Instead it is a role-playing aid intended to show the versatility of the standard player classes. Archetypes are meant to provide suggestions, insight and ideas on how to play a specific style of persona with a standard player class (instead of creating a new Alt Class). Some suggestions may impose restrictions on equipment or spell selections. Others may dictate behavior on the field or use of class abilities.
