I wanted to do something different this week, so I wrote about one of my favorite homebrew classes: The Rootless. This isn’t a class like fighter, mage, or rogue. This is a class of people like farmers, merchants, noblemen, or craftsmen. They are considered holy people, and a little out of their minds. Like kleptomaniacs can’t help but steal, the Rootless can’t help but explore and learn. Though the Rootless were created for a fantasy world, they can be adapted to any setting. In a science fiction world they would be scientists, scholars, and explorers.

I got the name, and the idea, from a song by S. J. Tucker titled, you guessed it, Rootless. There is a beautiful sign-language performance of this song on YouTube, here: https://youtu.be/fUvm4FJ92P4
Have a great weekend, and may you discover something new every day!
