Tier one branches
These are the starting branches before a character chooses their Combat Class. Stats spent here are more generalized, and will stay with the character when they chose the next branch to specialize in. PC can also chose to spend on points in either the tier 1 or tier 2 branch once they’ve opened up the tier 2 branch
Holy: get a heal, gets to pick a god and get a few little passive buffs
Nature: can scavenge maybe to get things from bushes, less food/water usage
Fanatical: Demon pact guys, zealots. Possibly get a little demon pet that gets shaped based on what the next tier you take is. a few dots, maybe some ‘spend life instead of mana mechanic’
Melee: chose a weapon. hit harder with it. hp better, armor better?
Magic: start off as a general arcanist, maybe learn some stuff to make your mana regen. Maybe a portal to base?
