I have no idea if pref file format has changed, maybe you should check that?

My quick code check suggests that they are the same thing, so no.

So far I see that the most convenient thing about Skillmasters is easy access to bonus speed. Even from cl1. Or the ability to make reasonably healthy mages.

My favorite early-game Skillmaster convenience is Loremastery

The only reason I had TheOtherMITZE as an email is because some jerk took the original. Who else had reason to use this random jumble of letters, I'll never know.

Here's a YouTube video of my playthrough with my latest Hasty Tonberry Skillmaster, Heritage XV (from PosChengband 5.0.5, of course) from GAME START to the 2 hour mark:

Enjoy!

Pardon silly question, but what is the 'usual spot' for downloads? I saw the Skillmaster in the changelog and I really NEED to play it!

Post In The Interest Of Informed Decisions

Because I believe in informed decisions when one is planning out character builds, I decided to create a wizard-moded test character and experiment with the skillmaster. Here's what I found (EDIT: You'll need to highlight the text below, because of spoilers):

For melee weapon skills:
  • You get a STR increase at your first, third, sixth, and ninth point.
  • You get a DEX increase at your second and fifth points.
  • You get a INT decrease at your sixth and ninth points.
  • It only takes four points in any weapon melee skill to have master proficiency in that class of weapons. The fifth point gets you an additional quarter of a blow, +10 to-hit, and +7 to-damage.
For the 'Martial Arts' skill:
  • You get a DEX increase at your second and fifth points (cumulative with the normal melee DEX increase).
  • Your first point gives you an AC bonus like a monk and access to the unarmed techniques up through 'Eagle's Claw' (6d6).
  • Your second point increases the AC bonus and gives you access to the 'Circle Kick' (6d8) technique.
  • Your third point further increases the AC bonus and gives you access to the 'Iron Fist' (8d8) technique.
  • Your fourth point gives you mastery proficiency, further increases the AC bonus, and gives you access to the 'Flying Kick' (8d10) and 'Dragon Fist' (10d10) techniques.
  • Your fifth point further increases the AC bonus and gives you access to the 'Crushing Blow' (10d12) technique.
  • Note that the number of blows you get increases with the number of points invested.
To be continued . . .

The thing about Chris is that he surely wanted us to discover all this on our own [as if they're spoilers]

Want me to keep anything else I find out to myself, then?

Just put a Spoiler disclaimer so that readers / players can decide to read on or not.
