Unofficial rules compendium

The knave is a world-wise fighter, a survivor who learns to mix brute force with a bit of craft. He has most of the fighter's strengths except heavy armor, along with some additional skills to help keep him alive and prosper. Some knaves are crafty gangsters who use stealth to gain an advantage against their opponents, while others are professional light troops or veterans retired to a civilian job.
