This is a physical technical class that deals with creation and destruction of items while having use of bombs and electricity to sabotage the enemy. Since it is physical technical class, the saboteur is unable to detect magical objects or have any affect on them.

Be sure you find 2 people willing to Co Sign the proposal before submitting. Anything that cannot get 2 cosigners will most likely not come close to passing senate.

I'm trying to wrap my brain around how this fits into the Medieval Fantasy realm that Darkon plays in. This seems Steampunk ish as all hell to me, which is something the game has actively tried to keep out. I dunno... I think of most of these games (Darkon/Dagorhir/Whatever as being more Tolkein and D&D, which your proposed class just doesnt seem to fit in at all.

Just an observation. I'm just a fighter, I'll hit anyone put in front of me, no matter the class, I don't get a choice.
