Subclasses are divisions within the major adventuring classes available
on ShadowMUD. Every class has a set of subclasses its members may join.
Choosing a class on ShadowMUD is mandatory--choosing a subclass, however,
is not. The idea of subclassing is to allow for a character who wishes
to specialize in a certain one of the skills associated with their main
These skills are detailed in a separate helpfile for each class.
Class Help File
Cleric <help cleric faith>
Fighter <help fighter combat>
Mage <help mage magic>
Monk <help monk discipline>
Rogue <help rogue deception>
To get specific information on a given subclass, you must be a member
of the appropriate class, be at least level ten, and find the trainer
who is the master of that subclass, or in the case of Clerics, find
the head priest or priestess of the appropriate deity. These people
will be able to divulge a description of their chosen profession.
