Yes, it probably should.

The ticket should probably also mention that hobbits are *not* actually any better with slings than anybody else; that bit of 'flavour' in the help file may be canon or fanon, but it ain't accurate.

Online help ...

Good job Takkaria to do an online help.

I just think it does the game no good if the download page and the online help page are not the same one.

Necromancers

Even tho i dislike the reduction of book numbers a lot,
i must admit that on 2nd look the new books seem to make sense overall.

I just toyed around character generation and i thought that high-elves should never be necromancers or blackguards. Just my imagination?

discriminating females

The character background always refers to the father alone ...
to make babies you need a female as well.

You are the son of a human royal prince and an elven woman.

More like this ...

Lol, mage without useful kit. Isn't that masochism?

Tibarius is, as I recall, very big on shopping. Presumably the intent is to start with max gold (the "useful kit" deducts from your starting gold) so they can buy exactly what they want to buy instead of what the game thinks they should have.

Considering how weak mages are in the early game, I could absolutely see someone deciding to e.g. get an attack wand instead of spellbooks.

Are you looking in the right shop? Shop 4 is now a bookseller rather than temple, and holds town books for all the classes.
