The Jester by Cribs The Jester by Cribs
Blindingly agile and ruthless, the Jester makes a mockery of any opposition.  Around the campfire, he can raise spirits and ease afflictions with his strangely tuned lute...

Playable class from my Indie RPG: Darkest Dungeon
**We're KICKSTARTING - please help spread the word**

Thanks!
Chris

I've completely fallen for this art style, not to mention the game in which it is featured :D

The Jester is the class I have the most trouble working into a lineup, I feel. You can basically put him anywhere, but unlike most other characters there's no place in the lineup where you'll actually get use of all his skills.

So in that regard, he's very much a jack of all trades! I just wish he had some kind of back-movement--Dirk Stab will get you to the front immediately, but getting to the back is a long and involved process.

Tis, a damn tough life, full of toil and strife, we fools undergo. And we don’t give a damn, at the days end, Oh How hard the crowds did cheer! Now we are homeward bound, from the road we came, with a cart full of gold. And we will not give a damn when we a drink our ale with the girls of the South!.

I wrote out a song for him :P

I cannot imagine what he sings. I bet its something like: "There was this quite nice fellow. I gave him some wine nice and mellow. And now he's dead of poisoning!"
