Here is the obligatory combinations-computation post:

Including the base class as a "subclass choice", we get the following:

There are 8 classes with 4 subclasses; 2 with 5 and 1 with 6, for a total of 8*4+2*5+6=48 subclasses. You can combine them in 48*48= 2304 ways (counting them twice for now).

We need to subtract combination of different subclasses of the same class, which means subtracting the squares of the individual numbers:

8*4^{2}+2*5^{2}+6^{2} = 8*16+2*25+36 = 214, leading to 2304 - 214 = 2090 combinations.

So far, we counted every combination twice, so lets reduce it to 1045 actual combinations.

We also need to subtract the forbidden paladin/priest combinations, which amounts to 3+3+2+4+3=15 forbidden combinations (counting from the paladin list):

1045-15 =1030

**Here you have it, 1030 subclass combinations for you to play in deadfire.**

Good news: You'll be able to advertise this game with the possibility of over a thousand classes!

Bad news: I won't compute the number for the companions that can have custom classes

How many 5 man parties? 1030^{5 }
