The Ghost (support class)

Can walk through walls. Immune to physical attacks. Cannot bear anything. Cannot attack. Base move in combat: can hamper an enemy (lower defense & dex). Unlocks special feats as it progresses, like "Inspire fear", "Paralyzing scream", "Slime", "Possess" (a wounded enemy) or "Poltergeist" (move an object or open a door).

How about a Timelord?

This opens up a whole bunch of possibilities:

- Slow enemies down.
- Reverse the affects of a recent enemy attack (or repeat a friendly one).
- Create restore points that you can revert to (either a location or health).
- Spacetime-distortion as an aoe offensive attack.
- Change the age of characters: older means more intelligence and xp, younger means more agility, etc. Or the opposite against opponents.
- Speeding up time increases health/energy regeneration for a period.

The Tactician
At the start of the combat round, the Tactician predicts the actions of each of the other characters and makes a note which is hidden from the other players - for example, "Elwyn will use True Shot on the ogre, Sir Pinion will attack the first imp and Gurp will go into a rage and grapple the second imp." During that combat round, every time a player does what the Tactician predicted, they get a bonus to their attack. On the Tactician's turn, she gets an accumulated bonus to her own attack depending on how many predictions she got right.

Uses a turn to choose a different class. It then becomes a copy of that class for a limited time. Extremely weak when not mimicking a class. After the limited time wears out there is a short cool down to mimic again. Provides an extremely versatile class but needs to be protected between mimics.

The politician

Enemy classes that comes within x amount of tiles of the Politician, will lose some of its abilities while in its range. The Politician also has the ability to mind control weak minded adversaries forcing them to come to his side. The Politician is physically very weak and needs support from smart aides to survive.

I would like to see a penguin. He would be very thick skinned and tough. He would create ice underneath him as he walks, that would stay on the board for a few turns and anyone walking on those spaces would then have a chance of falling down and losing movement points or attacks. He would be able to charge at someone from a distance, by sliding on his belly at them. He would attack with his beak primarily. Kind of like a monk he would be limited in the type of weapons and armor that he could really use. He could have some spells as well, like a rain of fish that would heal his ally's or a rain of ice that would slow enemies down.

I love Demon's Rise 2 by the way, great game!

The Detective

Has has a sad basset hound face and always seen wearing a weathered fedora.

Grizzled, jaded, Bitter, world-weary, pessimistic: he's seen it all and know the worst is still yet to come. Despite that, he remains an incorruptible idealist who can't help seeking justice despite his cynicism.

Always has unexpected contacts for every situation. Knows the criminals and the cops, knows who's who in high society and know's who's down in the common masses.

High charisma, intelligence and toughness. Middling strength, agility and wisdom.

Has basic thieving skills (pickpocket, lock pick, con), adept at melee, passable at ranged weapons (the revolver can get the job done, but he's not the best shot).

Prefers leather, restrictions on heavy armor.

The Senile Wizard

Has access to more powerful spells than usual, but every time the character casts a spell there is a chance that the effect and target will be selected randomly. This could lead to unexpected situations like buffing enemies or friendly damage.

A potential free game is certainly worth signing up for.

Not familiar with the setting, but it is fun to have a little risk, reward and randomness, so how about the Chaos Mage? A potent but uncontrollable sort of spellcaster who taps into forces at least somewhat beyond his or her understanding. A summon spell that will probably bring a minor ally...with a small chance at a major, boss-like creature that could fight for you or even against you. A meteor swarm spell that hits indiscriminately on the board. Blood Missile, which siphons a random amount of the caster's life force to damage one or more foes, possibly even killing them (assuming no permadeath). Power level would be strong with a small chance at gamebreaking but an almost equally small chance of being devastatingly bad.

Hipster. Subculture of men and women typically in their 20's and 30's that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter. + 3 attack while with Iphone, +5 health with coffee armor -20 Intelligence while without beard.
