In the full Hari Ragat game, playing characters of other castes can be made an option. Character creation rules are a bit different depending on your character’s caste:
The warrior-aristocrats. The default caste for PC's, 7 dice to distribute and 1d3+2 Bala. Roles covered include warrior, hunter, sailor, and aristocrat.
The merchants and money-lenders, commoners who equal the Orang Dakila in wealth but not necessarily prestige. 5 dice to distribute and 1d3 Bala. Roles covered include merchant and sailor.
The commoner caste. 5 dice to distribute and 1d3 Bala. Roles covered are farmer, fisherman, hunter, laborer, craftsman, and warrior.
The slaves. 8 dice to distribute and 1d3 Bala. Roles for Orang Dukha include laborer, farmer, and subterfuge – from telling lies to feigning illness to sneaking around! That’s how a slave survives.
Orang Dukha characters are unique in their ability to get two caste Roles; Orang Dukha, and whatever their original caste before their enslavement.
