special abilities

Each time you gain a rank in a skill group, you may be offered a chance to gain a special ability. These abilities are not skills and usually cannot be invoked directly; they are a bonus that is intrinsic to your character and may benefit them in many ways.
special abilities offered to a rank 2 brawler
Abilities can be purchased with experience points at any time once they are offered to you. It is not necessary to have any special abilities gain in rank in your skill group. Special abilities are in effect all of the time, not just when you are using that skill group. That means that abilities gained from one fighting style will apply even when you are fighting with a different fighting style!
Here's a small sample of the special abilities your character can acquire.
  • Thick skull - Immune to stunning by blunt attack to the head.
  • Impressive strength - +3 strength
  • Hawkeye - +3 perception
  • Stamina - +3 endurance
  • Beer belly - Ability to hold 30% more alcohol.
  • Fast Recovery - Allows one to recover from defeat twice as quickly.
  • Circumvent armor - Chance to ignore the absorbtion power of target's armor or protective wards.
There are hundreds of special abilities in Dusk, and not every character who plays a given skill group will see all of the possilibities for that group.
