I'm actually not one of the better players on here. TM (who goes by Machine Umsturz right now, but is recognizable by being member number 4), Drakefyre (who is obvious as the admin), and Thuryl (who has a custom title of "...b10010b..."), among others, know what they're talking about far more than I do, at least in terms of playing.

I know some aspects of designing reasonably well, though.

Unlike the trilogy, nephil seems to do better here, much to my surpriese.

Even without missile stat, it still able to damage opponent with bow at first level - that's rather impressive for I don't recall that slith can do that even with some bow stat.

So, I drop my slith and change it to all 4 nephil party. :D

I also come to conclusion that although divinely touch trait is nice, it doesn't seem to be worth the penalty since the added stat didn't contribute to any bonus unlike nephil dex starter that upgrade tool from the start.

For a fighter/priest:

Strength: 6
Dexterity: 3/4
Intelligence: 5/4
Endurance: 4
Melee: 1/2
Hardiness: 1/2
Priest Spells: 6

Or some variation of that.

Sorry for a possible double post, but could anyone help me with my question? And also, could someone explain how _all_ the special skills work, and what they do? Thanks!

Well, that still doesnt answer questions like "Does anatomy or Assassination work with thrown and bow weapons?"

No in both cases. There's another skill that focuses mainly on archery skill bonuses (sharpshooter).

What sort of skill is END? Because I really want to know. Spells take up too many spell points for my liking. (thats probably because I'm testing a scenario overrun with undead)

To discover the new special skills, open the character editor, add manyskill points, and see the skills appear with their descriptions...
