Changeling Classes – Scott

Keftiu writes in:

I love changelings a lot, but it feels like they’re always forced into the role of the sneaky, deceptive Rogue. Do you have any other clever or unexpected classes you think fit the race well?

Scott shares his experiences and suggestions.

Additionally, Keith presented some ideas in a blog post on Changelings, Shifters and Lycanthropes as a follow up to our previous episode.
