Here's an idea (although it has probably been mentioned beffore). Class specific abilities, much like in the Diablo games. One catch, they are _only_ available to classed characters. Custom characters wouldn't be able to get them even with an editor. This might be a way to allow newer skills and abilities to give otherwise overpowered spells, skills, and abilities the balance that they would lack in a custom character. For example, giving a mage an ability which will drain all his MP while active, but makes him the recipient of something akin to the old Divine Warrior spell.
Anywho, it's just an idea. Might be entertaining to see what kinds of things that people come up with. And, of course, if Spidweb likes the idea, and can implement it, that would be pretty cool.

An interesting idea, but I don't think it would work. Still, a cool idea. I doubt Jeff would like it. He doesn't seem to like any more restrictions on customization than necessary. What I'd be interested in seeing is more character traits, also possibly the ability to choose 3 traits.

Jeff has stated there will be no hard line classes in Blades of Avernum. He believes in a customizable system.
