Hi,

In PHB is said that henchmen must have the same race and class as PC.

But from DMG it can be understood that race and class may be different from PC (percentage for different race and class when PC search henchmen).

What is true?

Thanks

Vasiliy

Right. That says henchmen must have a race and a class (unlike 0-level hirelings). It doesn't say they must have the same race and class as the PC.
