In WHITEFRANK CLASSES I added a section on Anarchists. WHITEFRANK is one of the OSR games where not all characters have to have a character class. Anarchists have no class, deliberately. This is because they believe, and fight on the basis that, character classes are an oppressive system of enslavement that prevents ordinary non-classed characters from siezing the means of production. They teach the Marxist dialectic that the struggle of character class against character class is a political struggle. In the first sourcebook, Anarchists are plotters and terrorists, throwing grenades at diplomats and furious that the kingdom where they slaughtered all the knights and princesses turned into an empire and not their perfect classless society. Having purged one set of character classes, different even more tyrannical character classes took power.
It is contrasted with the struggle of Barbarian and Horse Nomad classes against neighbouring character classes who push them off or restrict their travel across traditional homelands. It is also contrasted with the largely no-class Humans who follow the High Church of the One True Way, who wish to end a different character class: Elves.
What I wanted to attack was the assumption or presumption that the composition of a game’s society must be static or status quo. A natural tension exists between Merchants and Princesses because the credit card type weakness of the Princess class is how Merchants make a lot of their money. Likewise if the Church prevails, the character class - and species - of Elf will disappear. But since the godlike female beings the Elves claim as ancestors are still around they will be drawn into a war with powerful Human forces.
I added this to keep the Minnesota Sessions flavor - negotiations, conflict, politics and wheeling dealing - as an essential possible layer of story telling and play.
Even in a planetary romance setting, one can see the shift in character classes as a political struggle. John Carter overthrows a character class of priests, Flash Gordon ends entire character classes of troopers and so on.
