Heroes of the New Day
When you hit level 11, you’ll get the chance to take a paragon class. In general, this is a chance to specialize and hone your identity as a hero. Some of these classes have prerequisites that you might want to start prepping yourself for in earlier levels (with feats, attribute distribution, power selection, etc). There are hundreds of possibilities for paragon classes. Most are based on your base class, though there are a few that are race-based as well. I’ve gone through and cherry-picked the ones that I think best match your characters, though of course there are many other options. I’ll be updating this page frequently as I go through more books (or more books are published). Below are my suggestions, along with prerequisites and paths you might want to take to get to these paragon classes. Sometimes there might also be an outside group that sponsors folks who take these paragon classes, too, but we can work that into the narrative of your stories as you decide which direction you’ll be headed in.
