The Mage class is a spellcasting class devoted primarily toward control
over the elements. The universe contains an unmeasured power that the
Mage taps into to influence the world. Mage spells are devoted to the
invoking, hermetic, and combative nature. Mages fare a little better than
their Cleric counterparts in hand-to-hand combat, though they much prefer
to stand back and roast their enemies with a fireball.

The Cleric class is a spellcasting class devoted primarily toward defense.
A deity gives the Cleric spells in the curing, warding, and protection
divinities. Clerics being of a defensive nature fare poorly in the art
of mortal combat. They much prefer to be civil servants to society or
doctors to their comrades in arms.

The Thief class can be characterized as a Warrior who dropped out of school
to pursue more "profitable" means of living. These wirey persons
have physical endurance slightly less than that of a Warrior but are much
more agile. Whereas a Warrior uses well placed weapon slashes, a Thief
seeks to DISARM his opponent. Thieves also excel in the art of stealth.
An unwary opponent might not detect a Thief until a BACKSTAB is attempted.
To achieve success in this, the skills SNEAK and HIDE are learned. With
a Thief's PICK LOCK and POISON WEAPON skill, a Thief also makes the perfect
assassin for political powerhouse.

The Warrior class is the most basic fighting class available. Their battle
training along with high strength and high hit points make them very formidable
in hand to hand combat. Warriors train in the art of multiple attacks,
some mastering up to five attacks at the highest levels. Along with this
training in multiple attacks, a Warrior is trained in making each hit
count. ENHANCED DAMAGE is available to only the learned. Toward the defense
side of the Warrior, skills of PARRY, RESCUE and BASH DOOR allow the Warrior
to ward off attacks, rush to the aid of fellow comrades, and open doors

The Psionicist class is a spellcasting class similar to Mages and Clerics
but with several important differences. Where a Mage's power comes from
harnessing external energies present in all matter, and a Cleric's comes
from his or her deity, the Psionicist derives all of his or her power
from within. The Psionisist harnesses, shapes, and utilizes the natural
forces which infuse his or her own being. As a result, many of the devotions
that a Psionisist can practice are strictly personal in effect, and cannot
be used on other players.
The Psionicist class was originally developed by Thelonius (EnvyMud) from
'The Complete Psionics Handbook' by Steve Winter, published by TSR, Inc.
Skills and spells described therein will be quite similar to those here,
though the interpretation has been changed to coincide with a MERC DIKU
MUD. Questions, comments, and suggestions are welcome.
