Engineers are known for their expertise with machinery and their ability to handle various devices. Among them are naturally a great many imbued with vast creative spirit.
Baron, Military Nation
The Engineers of the Airship Maintenance Unit supervise the Baronian Airship Corps and repair their airships. Only those who have mastered piloting the airships can enlist in the highly elite Airship Corps. At present, the Airship Corps holds the highest position in all of Baron. The very job of being an auxiliary of the Airship Corps, Baron’s front line of defense, is super-hard; to the Engineers, however, it’s merely an extension of their existing interests, and the challenge makes them all the merrier.
Damcyan, Nation of Trade
Dealing with machinery requires the usage of expensive materials, and an Engineer can find many advantages to being in the center of trade for such materials.
Agart, Village of Dwarven Descendants
Dwarves had natural aptitude with machinery, and some of this talent has been passed on to their descendants. It wouldn’t be unheard of to find an Engineer in Agart.
As fast learners who tend to avoid using magic and with the aid of superior upgrades to their weapons and armor, Engineers can become just as great at physical combat as other fighting classes. Their knowledge of machinery make them particularly effective against machines.
Though combat feats can be used as often as you like, there usually is some sort of trade-off, such as lower accuracy or damage than a normal attack.
Engineers can create odd and unusual weapons and are often the only ones with the savvy required to use them.
Weapon jams, running out of ammunition or fuel, overuse – the abundant arsenal of the engineer must constantly be refueled, recharged, reloaded, and repaired, each taking various amounts of materials and time.
In addition to creating machinery, Engineers can apply their creativity to all sorts of equipment and devices, such as improving armor or applying properties to weapons. Their analytical mind can also help determine enemy weaknesses.
Crafting, repairing, and upgrading equipment usually require machine parts both common and rare, which can be either found or purchased.
