Possibly the most important statistic for any character in the game. Your class determines your quality of life and your fate.

There are two kinds of class distinctions - major and minor. There are seven major classes (Peasant, Servant, Merchant, Military etc) - but within each of these classes are a number of minor classes. Whenever the rules call on you to check for a difference in classes, you subtract the lower major class from the larger major class unless you both belong to the same class - in which case you subtract the lower minor class from the larger minor class.
