On DSL, some race/class combinations are discouraged, though not expressly forbidden. To balance what might otherwise be a strong combination of magic and strength, that race/class combo may be subject to penalties once the character is at or above level twenty.

Conversely, some combinations are not as strong as they should be, even though the combination fits the race for flavour reasons. These combinations gain bonuses when the character is at or above level twenty. The most obvious indicator is an inordinate damage increase that is granted above and beyond the basic damage roll of the character. However, this is not the only form of "boostage", it is simply the only one that is definitively testable. Many races also get a bonus to their thac0 and/or saves. Some race/class combos may very well be "superboosted" damage wise, but only boosted in the saves and thac0 departments (this seems to be the case with several of the larger race hitters, such as bugbear barbarians and ogre armsmen).

Also note that what used to be known as "boostage" and "superboostage" is no longer fully accurate, as the "+10" and "+20" damage modifiers seem to have been blurred somewhat for a variety of race/class combos. Whereas a boosted character would do straight "mauls" performing the damage test, and a superboosted character would do straight decimates, there is now something of a blur for many of the race/class combos. As such, use the following as a guide. If you see that your character is boosted or super boosted, then you can be pretty sure that your character should "do well", assuming you know what you're doing.

If a spot is blank, it unknown. If it is for a race that is updated on the website then it is either normal, not possible to take or Scorn simply didn't mention it. For the last case, it is most likely the same as the base class (example: Boost for mage may possibly mean Boost for enchanter)

Below is the list of known penalized and rewarded race-class combinations.

DISCLAIMER: These values are subject to change without notice. This page will not be 100% accurate as Scorn frequently makes changes. Scorn is currently placing information on www.dsl-mud.org that should be much more accurate then this list. This list will be updated as changes are made to the main DSL website.
