You remain your original class the entire time. It is more like... AD&D 2e's Kits if anything. But it isn't like prestige classes.

Iltsuger wrote:That's a good point about not purchasing other talents. You still get the flat stat bonuses, though, so it's still better to get a specialization, it seems. Specializations seem modular though, like people could design new ones pretty easily. That, and maybe there'd be a sort of true path that sticks to the basics, and maybe that could be a specialization in itself. Less talents, maybe, but some other bonuses to the side depending upon class.

True enough but that in and of itself doesn't mean much. Computer games back in the 80s came on tape drive....
I'm an old timer so condition my opinion that way, but IMO boxed sets are a major turnoff (though I'll still get this one). Hardcover is nice and sturdy, nothing falls out, etc.

But I do really really miss campaign settings coming in a boxed set. They used to come with so many more maps and handouts that just cant be done in the hardback format.
