Used to be we had illustrations where a character's function in their party was ambiguous. Now we're older and dumber, we need a clue ...

These covers may be fine pieces of imagery, but do we really need the subjects' little flourishes and adornments to hammer home their abilities? Are they just showing off?

Please add your own skulduggery to this list and let a thriving circle of scholars debate these important matters.

"Arcane, Divine and Martial Heroes." Well, nice to see they put it in alpha order for us, but we are left with a puzzle - what possible category could the two specimens who adorn the cover fall into?

The gentleman, who is a steroid pumped crocodile of some kind, is certainly neither a wise priestly type, nor learned professor. I'm going with martial.

The lady - stage right, it is very difficult to guess her gender, I know, on account of her plain and loose clothing, is clearly a witch of some sort. Look, her hand is one fire.

The two brave companions have just tried their traditional butt-bash before combat, but they're just off. This could bode ill for our ambiguous duo.

The big fella (top, center, easy to spot) clearly has no class.

One count of menacing a quest with intention to detain.

Preventing a licensed adventurer passage through a rather large door.

One count of drooling with intent to intimidate, combined with a questionable leer.

Another count of wielding an improvised weapon poorly.

And that's not even to mention destruction of dungeon property and crimes of fashion.

Wait, we're meant be focusing on the adventurer. I think we're dealing with a female. She is also experiencing so kind of electrical phenomena in her right hand. Any ideas?

This lady's profession and role in any party is anyone's guess.
