New: Giant Skeletons have improved texture art courtesy of Trisscar! New Need: Travel - pawns with this need enjoy being in caravans and get a mood boost when they've traveled frequently, but acquire a mood penalty when they remain at a colony too long New standalone fighter ability - Legion: this ability allows any fighter to learn a single fighter ability from any other fighter class (except faceless) New standalone fighter ability - Tempest Strike: by burning through their stamina reserves, the pawn uses their equipped weapon to launch a flurry of attacks; works with ranged and melee weapons Two new minor classes have been added; these classes do not have class abilities but can improve generic abilities learned via scrolls * Pawns with the Gifted or Physically Adept traits can immediately promote to their respective minor classes * Minor classes cannot be promoted to a full class at a later time Class - Wanderer (mage): excels at general abilities but has no class abilities * can teach themselves to use basic fighter abilities * their caravan ignores tile movement penalties * enjoys traveling and has the need to travel Class - Wayfarer (fighter): excels at general abilities but has no class abilities * can teach themselves to use basic mage abilities * increases the speed of their caravan by 25% * enjoys traveling and has the need to travel Class - Chaos Mage (mage): a unique class that possesses only one class skill: Chaos Tradition.
