Action 52 (52 GLOG classes)

I wrote a list of fifty class names, and the OSR Discord filled it out (Phlox did fifteen on his own here).
Nicked this list from udan-adan and converted it into class names.

  55. Mystic Cavern (surprise last-minute entry by RandomWizard)
    A You are a cave. You can also get up and walk around to go adventuring. I guess you have really big stone legs or something? You have a lot of AC and HP (stabbing a cave is not very effective; enemies will probably need explosives or something).
    B Being mystic, you can cast spells. Use the spell list from Skerples' Speleomage. If you think too hard about how this works, roll for a Mishap. +1 MD.
    C Pools of weird mystic water, and valuable and rare ores, show up inside your rocky depths. The water does weird magic stuff when drunk. 1-in-2 chance that a group of miners will show up to explore the place. +1 MD.
    D Roll for 1d4 cave random encounters. They live inside you now. They're mildly loyal, and will follow orders from the mysterious cave spirit or whatever. +1 MD.
Secret bonus class: Julian. Start with clothes, knife, cool nametag
1. Absolutely nothing.
2. A prehensile beard, one inch long.
3. A sneak attack.
4. Someone else named Julian has become extremely famous. You can use that Julian's name to gatecrash cool parties and get favors from rich people.

    Instead of letting those ungrateful bastards (by which I mean players) choose their own class, make them roll on this table. It will teach them to be thankful for what they have.
