Eschalon: Book 1 - Forum Q&A Updates
by Dhruin, 2006-09-05 00:01:00Basilisk Games' Forum Q&A has quite a bit of new material since we last posted on the topic, offering good information on Eschalon - head over to catch up:
Thieves/Rogues on their own don't get any "special" attack styles just for being a Rogue. But, if you are designing a Rogue-like character, then it's assumed you'll specialize in picking locks, disarming traps, spotting hidden items, moving silently, etc. All these skills are well utilized in the game world. For example, there are secret spots in the game world that some players may never find if their Spot Hidden skill is too low, but a decent Rogue will see them! Hopefully each character type will find cool situations in the game designed to utilize their skill set.
Remember, Eschalon is not class-based. It is skill based, so any character can technically possess any skill. It's all up to how you want to play it.
