PCs for the Aegean Saltbox

In playtesting my rules for the Aegean Saltbox, I created six characters to run through the random wavecrawl tables, and perhaps The Bad Myrmidon. Perhaps you'd be interested in seeing what the rules produce currently. I decided one of each of Enchanters, Olympian Priests, and Specialists, and three Fighters would be the proper mix.

Let me know what you think, what you like, what doesn't make sense.
