I think the Musketeers might have a penchant for huffing magical gunpowder or something, they seem a little bit delirious!

Also, the whole execution idea of someone dying "the wrong way" makes me think a bit of Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 3;

Good calls. That gunpowerd would be the equivalent of coke would be weird though. Isn't that the sorcerer's alley?

Maybe huffing it is too direct of a term, more like it just gets into their system as they fire off their weapons/prepare each shot? Like miners getting covered in charcoal, gases and other dangerous materials can get into their lungs and cause problems on a long-term basis. That might make more sense in the case of Musketeers, rather than intentionally getting intoxicated.

That makes me half expect them to have some strange animations. Like they are crazy or drunk or something. And if so, imagine their undelver counterparts. Lunatic undead musketeer that wants to kill you? O.o'

Harlequins were, at one point, solely used as diplomatic comic relief. However, their agile nature was soon used for darker purposes

Harlequins' first rule: Never be predictable. Rule two: You are your mask. No exceptions.  Rule three: You are always in the spotlight.

Literally, there is a spotlight following you around everywhere you go. Do not look at the mysterious creature holding the spotlight, as this will make only make it angry... No exceptions. :P

  This would actually be pretty awesome and unique!  As you play the Harlequin you are constantly in a spotlight as it follows you around the Drop!  It could give you an extra light source but possible make monsters more prone to attack you!

Gladiators tend to be strong and silent characters. Using as few words as possible to express themselves, a grunt might often suffice.

Because most Rogues were abandoned at an early age, they have a soft spot for children in need. In a way, this fuels the recruiting cycle.

It'S very nice how each guild has/had a function in the world of ddrop. The rogues picking up children is a really neato part.

It also kind of shows the parallels AND differences between Rogue and Assassin as both are likely trained from very young age, but have totally different reactions to kids. I now picture the part of the rogue guild (are they still part of the hanged men/ hanged ones?) being a bit more like a giant family.

Assassins got fired from the royal serviece, other than that we don't know if guilds are forming or were disbanded.

If you're desperate for cover, sometimes it's best to pick up an object and use it as a shield.

Ah, so that's what barrels and crates are for! I like it. I can imagine some really nice trap/obstacle rooms based around that mechanic. Even if you're missing a shield, the environment will lend its hand from time to time while simultaneously trying to kill you. XD
