Deathfire Update: In-Game Video Footage and Classless Character

Guido Henkel has some Deathfire: Ruins of Nethermore in-game video footage to show us in the latest Kickstarter update.

He also introduces a 3500 backers stretch-goal: the Classless Character.

How does this work in practice? When you pick a class in the game, it automatically ties your character to certain abilities and limitations. Since each class has certain modifiers that determine the character’s traits and abilities, this can be cumbersome at times, and get in the way of the character you REALLY want to play.

The Classless Character gets around these limitations. It is a middle-of-the-road kind of character with no real strengths, but also no real weaknesses. His class modifiers will all be zero, and only the race modifiers are applied to the character. He is a carte blanche, giving the player the opportunity to really shape him any which way he wants to.

However, when creating such a character, one has to keep in mind that despite its overall flexibility, the classless character has limitations. While he may be a magic user, he will not have access to all spells, however. Dedicated Wizardry spells will be available to Wizards only, while certain fighting techniques will be available only to Warriors, and so forth. Therefore, the classless character plays more of a supporting role in the game to complement other companions in the party, but to that end, he might be one mighty fellow you would not want to miss.​

There's some more stuff in the update but if you cared you'd already be reading the update on Kickstarter.
