Why wait to get the Master Characters from the City involved? You might start as a Warrior ans then become the Sheriff or may start as the Conjurer and then try to become the High Mage but the Citizen takes a shorter path.
He is not the strongest or smartest but he starts with the Master Class of his choice and has all its Strength and Craft bonus and Special Abilities.
* You ignore Special Ability #7 and the latter part of #6 - you cannot lose this Character.
Power Level 1:
Champion of Chaos* and Templar
Power Level 2:

Power Level 3:
King's Champion and Sherriff
Power Level 4:
High Mage and Mystic***
** You ignore Special Abilities #5 and #6.
*** You are always have two Spells even if your Craft normally does not allow it.
Option IV - Using Game Supplements
||A player can control Multiple Characters. For the sake of balance treat it is a single Character with all
their total Power Levels plus two for every Character controlled beyond the first.
||A Character has a +1 Power Level bonus if only he begins with a random Skill or can visit the Bandit King.
Use everything at once.
There is no reason why you can't control a Hero Dwarf Soldier with a Stealth Skill and the ability to visit the Bandit King. You'll get something like what is below - which is ridiculously overpowered but give all the other players Power Level 6 Characters (maybe another player controls an Elf Warrior and a Leprechaun Rogue) and its fine - just expect a shorter than average game.
