Classes

As with races, some classes do not suit Ravenloft. This may be for themeatic reasons, such as most of the psionic classes, or it may be for metaphysical reasons, such as most of the primal classes. A class that is labelled as No in the following tables is free to play with no DM approval. Classes marked with a Yes are restricted and will require DM approval.
