Class: The Grenadier
Burly and dexterous. The only two requirements for a grenadier. That and guts enough to be first over the wall hurling explosive death left and right. Just don't cut your fuse too short. It'd be a pity having to pick all your bits up.
Starting Items: Sack Of Grenades, Slowmatch, Buff Coat (as leather), Sidesword, Fancy Cap
Starting Skill: 1) Siege-works 2) Clout 3) Scrambling 4) Parade
A - Lobber, Close-Quarters
B - Perfect Timing
C - Fierce Figure
D - Blast-proof
Barring major mishap, hurled projectiles always land more or less where you mean to throw them.
You are adept at the tussle and grapple of fighting in ditches, tunnels, and battlements. Tight spaces present no challenge to you in combat.
Your fuses are cut to the precise second, you know just when to throw that bomb. When it comes to timing things you are flawless.
You cut a ferocious look, spark spitting grenade in one hand, wickedly sharp sword in the other, and a smoldering smile beaming out from under powder burns and rubble dust. Common soldiers and such cutthroats must check morale upon your entrance.
You can shrug off any explosion with a cough, groan, and minor singeing. What doesn't instantly splatter you makes you tougher after all.
