Classifications define who you are, and what you do in your world. In Alchemy, there are two types of Classifications: Species and Professions.
If you're creating an adventure from scratch, you may opt to play without Classifications, pick just one, or both - it's entirely up to you!
Each Classification adds another level of depth, below explains each classifications details.
In a fantastic world of adventure and drama, wouldn't it be dull if everyone was a human? If you've played an RPG before, chances are you may have played as an elf or a dwarf at one point. The species classification is made up of two attributes (and the species grants a bonus to these attributes), and a number of mechanics known as Bonuses and Penalties.
Each species will either be a pure-attribute species, or a mixed-attribute species - pure-attribute heroes on one attribute (gaining a larger bonus towards the attribute), while mixed-attribute heroes are split between two (gaining bonuses in both).

We can't all be Kings and Queens. But we can be soldiers and artists. Hell, we can be whatever we want! The Profession classification is made up of two attack disciplines (which determines your characters battle style), an inherent proficiency with at least one core stat (such as reflex or active detection), and bonuses and penalties.
Again, a profession can be a pure-discipline profession or a mixed-discipline profession - pure-disciplined heroes focus on one discipline (creating more ways to fight), while mixed-disciplined heroes split between two (making them more versatile on the battlefield).
