Classes are not apart of the normal Mutant Future rules (unless you are playing with Mutants & Mazes conversion rules), but some players like to add more character options. By default, characters advance like D&D Fighters. Adding classes can be as easy as altering the normal advancement rules.

Fantasy ClassesEdit

This is a quick and dirty way of adding classes:

• Choose your race as normal. If the Mutant Lord wishes, players may choose the fantasy races from D&D or Labyrinth Lord (like dwarfs, elves, & halflings).

• Choose a class at first level — Fighter, Magic-User, Cleric, or Thief (and sub-classes, if used).

• Roll hit points as normal (one die per CON). At first level, no other die is rolled at this point.

• Each extra level grants a small number of bonus hit points until 9th level: 1d6 for Fighters, 1d4 for Clerics, and 1d2 for Magic-Users and Thieves (their are no HP adjustment based on CON). After 9th level, Fighters gain 1 extra points per level. (Such progression is lower then then the normal fantasy rules, but this is to counter the massive build-up of HP as the character gains levels — seeing how characters in Mutant Future starts of with a large number HP)

• Use the respective to-hit and saving throws tables instead of the normal Mutant Future tables.

• Characters gain all the benefits (spells, thieves' abilities, proficiencies, and such) entitled by their respective class at each level.
