Thrundarr still doesn't give potion of literacy to low literacy characters
Despite promised changes, Thrundarr still IDs equipment instead of giving potion.

Basically, when you implemented having the potion of literacy max out literacy skill (http://www.adom.de/forums/project.php?issueid=1317), you forgot that Thrundarr only gives the potion to characters with *no* literacy. I recommend changing that to he gives the potion to any character whose literacy is <100%, so this is actually useful in some way.

I'd prefer he gives it to characters with <50% literacy, or gives them the choice.

I understood from the RFE that <50% would be the case, but would also prefer a choice.

Me must however ask ourselves, must every PC be very literate? As things are now all my characters become very good casters, no matter what R/C.

Reading scrolls requires fairly high literacy to be effective...

<50 is probably fine. If you want to max literacy (or gain it) otherwise, you can visit the Library.

For example Barbarians.

I wonder whether, the player that discovered that about library, can remember whether there was a special message generated. It might be unintentional going from nothing to 100 Literacy.

I'd like to clarify: my character's literacy *was* <50% (it was around 40), but I still got my equipment ID'd.

That was me--there was no special message from visiting library and gaining Literacy for the first time there.

Oops, yes, now you receive the potion if you are illiterate or the literacy skill is < 50% :-)
