Fighters are the all-around basic combat class.
Fighters have knowledge in the area of Tactics, and gain half of their Fighter level, rounded up, to rolls in this area of expertise.
Fighters begin the game with 4 weapon proficiencies, and gain new proficiencies every three levels. They begin the game with a Weapon Specialization of their choice, and are able to use all weapon types, usually carrying a variety to deal with differing situations that may arise. Fighter THAC0 increases by 1 every level increase. Fighters use a d10 for hit dice.
