Thanks for the clarifications, Arnie!

So, the Hunter is in fact a promoted class for the Landsman base-class. This way it makes much more sense. Seems like Landsman is a really "basic" all-around unit, something like militia, confirmed by its hybrid melee/ranged nature. It surely doesn't have all that warlike flavoring that other classes (Raider, Warrior, Shieldbanger) have. I am curious to see his abilities and how he fits in the Factions crew. In the Saga, he can surely serve as a scout of sorts, I think...
