So, in Denizens of the North, there are a number of NPCs who have more than one Archetype listed in their brief statblocks. Here are two examples:

Magnus Magnusson has Level 20 Skald/Seithkarl

and

Baba Yaga has level 42 Seithkona, Druid, Galdr Fylgia

How are these to be interpreted? The latter format is used only in the cases of extremely powerful NPCs, I've noticed. Magnus doesn't have a Fylgia listed. Does this mean that Dwellers can choose more than one Archetype (assuming this from Magnus's stadblock?) And by this logic, would the NPCs using Baba Yaga's statblock actually have levels in the first Archetype with Cross-Archetype Runes bound into the Archetypes listed after the first?

The reason I ask this is due to how it would impact the design of the Dweller Creation App my friends and I are working on in our spare time. :)

The app should require a Fylgia to multi-class. Sometimes there may be exceptions, but they are by far the exception and not the norm. Since it's an RPG, some things are possible through the quest, world and role-play that exists outside and above the rules. This you will not be able to account for in the app, but the rules should be the design. When creating a dweller, once a player pays a level for the fylgia, then the outer ring should activate.

I'm super excited to see the fruits of your labour! :)

I just assumed they got up into the corners of their grid, or up into the corners of those corners.

That's what I was assuming, as well, for one of the two stat block formats. However, there were two distinctly different formats for the NPCs, so I was wondering which one was just Cross-Archetyping vs. which one was an actual additional Archetype.
