Poschengband: list of human abilities?

Is there a spoiler for the powers that humans get to choose from?

In /lib/help/Demigods.txt, there will be an up to date list.

I have a guide on choosing them (written by krazyhades, I think?)
Note that it is an old guide: https://pastebin.com/hTi24Nky

That guide is wrong about Fleet of Foot not stacking with the Ninja bonus though. They do in fact stack and you can end up taking only ~15% of a turn for each movement.
What probably caused this misunderstanding is that there are two similar-but-different "quick_walk" effects in the source code. Fleet of Foot gives the same bonus that Mystics have, while Ninjas, Wild-talents, and monster-race hounds get a different bonus which can stack with the first one.

The problem using the ingame help, or the Demigods.txt file is that the simple half sentence descriptions are too vague to be useful. Take for example this;

"Peerless Sniper-
Damaging a monster with a missile weapon no longer provokes a retaliation"


Whereas, this out of date comment from nikheizen actually says something;

"PEERLESS SNIPER very very good on archer types. Monsters get "ticked off" when you damage them at range and that makes them forget their less-powerful abilities, making them much more dangerous. Less important for the final fight, more important for the late farming stage."

Retaliation is used elsewhere to describe such things as a Monk's free counter-attack. Resulting in non-coders utter confusion as the mutations don't behave in accordance with some vague description.
Afterall, I find nikheizen's better than the ingame. But is that 'Better' a 0.00001% better, or 1045% better?

Yeah, that's why I posted both.

Whoever wrote that guide, their advice is mostly good and does go into more depth on what most of the abilities do, but it's outdated and I can't remember if any abilities have been removed- which should be covered by Demigods.txt.
