Your character's class represents the training and study they underwent
to learn their craft and the skills and abilities that training
Each class is made up two basic parts: the Table and the Features.
The table of a class contains its basic stats and has an ordered list
of the features of the class. The features are the more complex
abilities of the class that set it apart from other classes.
The table contains the following information:
Atk: the base attack bonus for that class.
Fort: the base Fortitude save for that class.
Ref: the base Reflex save for that class.
Will: the base Will save for that class.
Phys: the Physical Prowess for that class.
Ment: the Mental Prowess for that class.
Features come in several basic types:
Extraordinary Abilities (Ex): Extraordinary abilities are nonmagical,
though they may break the laws of physics. They are not something that
just anyone can do or even learn to do without extensive training.
Spell-Like Abilities (Sp): Spell-like abilities mimic a spell. Usually,
a spell-like ability works just like the spell of that name. They can
be dispelled just like the spell they copy; and using one provokes an
attack of opportunity and a Fort save to keep it if disrupted.
Supernatural Abilities (Su): Supernatural abilities are magical to some
degree and so stop working in an antimagic field. However, they do not
provoke attacks of opportunity and can not be dispelled.
Hit Points: 4
Skill Points: 2
Skills: Anthropology (Int), Craft (Int), Medicine (Wis), Perception
(Wis). In addition, the commoner may choose one additional skill to be
a class skill.
This class is not intended for player characters. Instead, it is
intended for unimportant NPC characters, for simple creation of such
characters. Levels in commoner do not fully count for increasing CR.
Instead, count only odd numbered commoner levels when calculating the
CR of commoners.
Weapon and Armor
Commoners are proficient with all simple weapons, but not with any type
of armor or shield.
character may add new classes as he or she progresses in level, thus
becoming a multiclass character. The class abilities from a character’s
different classes combine to determine a multiclass character’s overall
abilities. Multiclassing improves a character’s versatility at the
expense of focus.
Class And Level
As a general rule, the abilities of a multiclass character are the sum
of the abilities of each of the character’s classes.

when feats and ability score boosts are gained.
"Class level" is
a character’s level in a particular class. For a character whose levels
are all in the same class, character level and class level are the same.

Skills and Skill Points:

increases. If a skill is a class skill for any of a character's
classes, it is a class skill for that character.

the spell from.
