New classes for a Conspiracy setting – Microlite 20

These are new classes for a conspiracy setting, an urban campaign set in the court of a decadent kingdom, where is difficult to meet an orc but easy to be stabbed by words and daggers. Adventures should be centered on political plots, the aim of the campaign is to defend the crown or bring the country into the chaos of a civil revolt. Interaction with NPCs is more important than pure combat.

Inspirations for adventures may come from old classics (The Three Musketeers) or fantasy sagas (A Game of Thrones).
