A scout is a class similar to a rogue or ranger, preferring to stay hidden and attack from a distance rather then up close and personal. They have varying roles, from leading an army through unknown terrain to working as a missionary going solo to learn terrain for the payer. Usually they wear leather armor, as they rely more on speed and agility to out maneuver an opponent.
Weapons and Tactics Edit
A scout often uses light melee weapons, such as daggers and shortswords, and a small ranged weapon, like a shortbow or hand crossbow. They fight dirty, preferring to end the fight quick and are generally they are proficient in stealth and lock-picking.
