A downloadable game

This is obviously (for those familiar) based on the Torturer's Guild in Gene Wolfe's The Book of the New Sun. I didn't use the name "torturer" to steer away from the idea that the character would be out there torturing people. Perhaps "enforcer" would have worked as a name too. I don't play with players who are min/maxers or competitive with each other, so I went for flavor more than balance. Maybe some people would find this class unbalanced, in which case one could up the XP requirements for level or add more restrictions to armor/weapon use. You could even add that the class gets a penalty for using any weapon that isn't their starting weapon (or one gotten from another of the class).

Written for the OSE Class Jam https://itch.io/jam/ose-class-jam in July 2021 before I realized it had a theme about sea adventures. I guess just add “Pirate” to the front of “Executioner.”
