TATSUJIN (Expert)

    Tatsujin operate as craftsmen and professionals in the world. They normally do not have the inclination or training to be adventurers, but they are capable in their own field. The skilled blacksmith, the astute barrister, the canny merchant, the educated sage, and the master shipwright are all Tatsujin.

    The Tatsujin could make a PC-worthy class choice, but only for those players willing to create a character focused on something other than a traditional adventuring career. Tatsujin have a vast range of skills. Most towns and communities have at least a few Tatsujin in various fields such as elite craftsmen, experienced merchants, seasoned guides, and other highly skilled professionals.
