One of the fundamental classes of Dungeons & Dragons. Knights, mercenaries, soldiers, bowmen or bandits, all are Fighters, men and women who simply fight better than any other class. Given the nature of their skills and their single-minded focus, undistracted by the call of magic or thievery, Fighters often lead adventuring bands and other groups.
In the Black Peaks
Ten years ago, Lord Stefan landed in Specularum Harbor, his fleet laden with Fighters. These men-at-arms quickly moved out to conquer the river valley below the Black Peaks. Recently an army of warriors arrived in Threshold to engage the Dragon Army, and routed them after fierce fighting. Many Fighters remain in the region, either as soldiers, mercenaries, or freebooters.
