Special Notes on Ithorian Characters
Ithorians are very peace-loving and as such have alternate methods to acquire experience which reflect this peace-loving nature. The important differences are listed below:
- Ithorians will inflict reduced damage in combat which the Ithorian has initiated. If the monster attacks the Ithorian to initiate combat, the damage Ithorian's damage will be normal.
- Ithorians gain additional experience when healing (both themselves and others) with medkits.
- Ithorians gain experience through all phases of cultivating useful plants - gathering, planting and harvesting and even from making patches.
- Ithorians gain experience through the use of their strengthen skill (which can only be used on other, non-Ithorians).
These changes should make playing Ithorians rather different from the other races. Players selecting an Ithorian will have a very difficult time advancing if they do not work as part of a team with other players.
