Fahroy Class: Pilot
Role: Serves as a jack-of-all trades type of character. The Pilot is a combination of a bard/rogue/ranger/wizard. He uses leadership while on his air-vessel, trap and mechanical skills like a rogue, a vast array of survival abilities and even a small sub-set of spells to keep his ship and allies protected from harm.
Abilities: The Pilot has numerous special abilities, he gains bonus class skills and feats, spells at every level, his own air-vessel and with that ability comes several other special abilities. While on his own vessel, the Pilot is a devastating foe capable of warding off opponents while barely flicking a lever. At his mid-high levels he gains crewmen to help maintain the vessel.
Races: Pilots from all across the Fahroy Kingdom have been heard of. While humans pioneered most of the dalarahn ship technology they are not the only ones capable of piloting ships. The dwarves have shown innate talent in maintaining their vessels and nomadic gnomes often live among a fleet of air-vessels since they have no home of their own. Of course the dalarahn who created the air-vessels make suitable pilots their crew often find them to be a bit overzealous and protective of their vessels. Elves, half-orcs and Halflings usually have neither the patience or the desire to commandeer one of their own vessels but they make excellent crewmen.
Other Classes: While the Pilot sees many different classes over his journey he has views on certain ones. The pilot never misses the chance to befriend a fellow magic-user or rather use him for his knowledge. Pilots get along well with the ranger and rogue classes due to their shared skill-sets. Pilots view most barbarians and fighter type classes as reckless since the pilot usually takes great care to maintain the life of himself, his crew, and his vessel.
Adventuring: While many different pilots have many different ambitions most pilots either serve a specifics nation, Chansem, Valya or Dalarahn, there are pilots who owe allegiance to no one. Most of those sorts of pilots are vagabonds and only find friendly faces in gangs or pirate groups. Pilots always reserve a sort of pride in themselves since they can go for days without finding a port. That does not make them unable party members and they are always greeted with a warm welcome by adventuring bands- who doesn’t want to have a friend with an air-vessel?
Alignment: Since the skies are ever changing it is nearly impossible for a pilot to keep his ideals intact. No pilot can choose a lawful alignment. Chaotic and neutral pilots are common place and often times more accepted.
