Character Classes: Fighters
Fighters are one of the most common character classes in Tellaia. There are always wars, and there will always be a need for warriors. In Tirenia, the city-states do not have their own personal armies. Instead, they hire mercenaries called condottieri to wage war from them. Many members of the nobility have served as condottiere generals, and it can be a path to fortune and power if you are successful. Condottieri study battle from a scientific point of view, and often battles between condottieri companies will end without blood shed, as one side acknowledges that the other has outmaneuvered them, blocked their supply lines, or taken the superior terrain.
