D&D 5E Class Group Traveller


First Post
If the rogue class group were to be named Traveller (containing rogue, ranger, and bard) what does that tell us about the classes in the class group?

* A traveller should be rugged and sturdy but not quite as tough as a warrior.

* A traveller prefers light armor for convenience, speed and protection.

* A traveller should have access to a variety of awareness, exploration and wilderness skills.

* A traveller is not necessarily a fugitive or criminal, although it's good to be a traveller if you are wanted by the law.

* A traveller should carry light to medium weapons designed for hunting and self-protection.

* A traveller should have access to a variety of social skills such as secret signs, languages and endearing performance.

* A traveller umbrella can cover other character concepts such as bounty hunter, thief, and vagabond.

What do you think? A player character is a travelling adventurer, right? While an expert is a villager with expert skills in say smithing and cobblery. Is this a distinction worth making?

I think...this is genius.

...and they wouldn't have to rename/retcon "Rogue" as a class name...

I don't see it catching on, but as described by you, I think this is perfect! Nicely done.


I think it is a much better choice that Trickster. For me, it's a 50/50 with Adventurer. I think Adventurer has a bit more applicable connotation, however it suffers in the fact that Adventurer really applies to all members of the party.


Well, that was fun

On reflection, I'm in favour of Adventurer. I know all classes are adventurers, but the word just feels right in that place to me.

as long as it is spelled with two Ls, to ensure maximum confusion, and to raise the ire of sf gaming fans.

Explorer, Traveler, Adventurer, Rogue, they all work fine for me.

NOW I get it. I always thought traveler was the British spelling on account of General Lee's horse was named Traveller with two els (according to Richard Adams).
