I notice that the special abilities work very differently to the other Avernums, and there's new ones and stuff like that... anyway, has anyone got a list of all the special abilities (Magery, Quick Strike, Sharpshooter, Gymnastics etc.), what they do and how to get them?

Gotta love the Player FAQ.

EDIT: Yes, I know, I should update the special skills description at the bottom of the page in order to reflect recent developments in understanding of the skills, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. The basic idea is that BoA's system is a little more complicated than just "base" and "bought" at this point, but the general idea is still the same, and the numbers still work.

You special skills them by upgrading normal skills to particular levels. I am not sure which normals get which specials, though.

noooo! This'll be fixed if I come back later, right?

edit: I found it properly by going through the pink and pretty page link in your sig and then going to http://my.sanbrunocable.com/tomwatts/skills.html which is almost a completely different link.
Funny thing cos I had seen the player faq before, briefly, but didn't notice that it had a special skills section so I sort of didn't consider it when looking for them.... :o oh well...
and that "embarrassed" smilie there doesn't look at all embarrassed.

Oops. Don't go to that page anymore. Only go to the new KPPP. I can't update the old page anymore.
