Reducing Scope

Since I have a tendency to let my projects wane and disappear I’ve decided to further reduce the scope of the DW40K project. In so doing I’ve reduced my goals for the classes to be played, and especially how much advancement they can have.

My goal is to have three classes be playable – Assassin, Arbitrator, and Guardsman – and to only have enough for them to be playable until level 5.
