From what I read on the bug reports, and how the .err file displays it, I think it tries to access and add to the skills before they're enabled/declared. Similar to how a variable in CPP cannot be accessed unless it has been declared. I'm not the maker of this game, so I can't claim to know what really was happening, but if this helps him out then it helps us all.

The talent skilled, or if i can choose 2 talents if i choose "very skilled" after skilled then the game crashes, exits itself out.

Problem usually when you get to choose over 2 talents in the beginnin. The third talent crashes, but also then that talent "Talent" is choosed, it crashes

Dungeons & Dragons: V.3.5 Core Rulebook Set Thomas Biskup recommends: Dungeons & Dragons: V.3.5 Core Rulebook Set
"Here you get all the Dungeons & Dragons V3.5 Core Rulebooks in one set. I really love those books and have found my perfect fantasy system with these rules and the new Unearthed Arcana rulebook issued by Wizards of the Coast. This is so close to what ADOM RPG should have been that I will provide D20 rules for ADOM RPG based on these three books and some extra supplements. Character generation has become very flexible, the D20 rules system is pretty elegant and you can have a lot of fun with the wide range of possibilities these books offer."

In Association with Amazon Please support this website by going to Amazon through one of the links on this website (if you want to shop at Amazon at all that is ;-). It doesn't cost you any surcharge, but provides me with ADOM-related income. Thanks!
