"Vigilante class" vs. "Vigilante identity" as rules terms


Ultimate Intrigue Playtest General Discussion


Quote:
The vigilante can start each day in either of his identities, referred to simply as social or vigilante.

This causes a bit of ambiguity to me, where I'm not quite sure what the word vigilante means as a rules term (similar to how the word "level" might mean class level, character level, or spell level, depending on context).

It seems that the word "vigilante" alone usually means "vigilante class", whereas the other thing is referred to as "when he is in his vigilante identity". But I'm not quite sure, especially since the quote above seems to contradict that ("referred to simply as ... vigilante").

In general I would prefer two different words used for the class and the identity, to clear up any chance for ambiguity.

Maybe it would be simpler to say, "The vigilante can start each day in either of his identities, referred to simply as social or combat."

Then all references to vigilante identity changed to combat. That way vigilante will refer to just the class.
