A thief, a mage and two fighters face off against some n. classes; also character class, D&D-ism
1. in Dungeons & Dragons, the profession of a character; examples include fighter, magic user, thief, cleric, ranger, and paladin. See sub-class, multi-class.
2. a characteristic of a character in an RPG, roughly equivalent to a profession; the choice of class usually limits the skills and abilities the character can gain.

Addendum: See the Brunching Shuttlecocks’ reviews of D&D classes: page one and page two.
