The best Glog classes

I'm very busy with the Foreboding Fromagerie project, and it's going quite well.  A lot of good quality material has been submitted, and I have begun the earnest work of tying it all together.

But in the meantime, what about my blog?

Well here is a "low quality" content post - a list of classes I found interesting over the years.  This is by *no means* a complete list.  I'm sure there are wonderful classes out there I have never heard about.  But the following are some I've encountered and took note of for future reference.  Perhaps some of these may go well in your game too?

First, you probably know this one, but I am very fond of Skerple's summoner.  A fun, great "alt-caster" class.

Second, the zouave:  this resulted from a conversation on the OSR discord where someone wanted historical example of interesting fighters, and I told them about the zouave.  They turned around and created this amazing class.

edit:  Now with an expansion!


The muscle mage - a great example of how zany the GLOG can be

The Gun Priest:  This is incredibly flavorful and quite playable too:

The OG wizard (the sage).  Great for a low-magic setting.

The word barbarian doesn't mean raging shirtless warrior. It means foreigner.  This class does it beautifully:

A durable monk, and flavorful to boot.

So what are classes *you* like.  And don't post your own please ;)

edit:  Oh, it's catching on :D  Phlox (who made the barbarian) chips in! https://whosemeasure.blogspot.com/2020/09/some-of-my-favorite-glog-classes.html

Edit 2:  some more posts on this topic. Some classes I had never seen, and others are coming up more than once...
