Re: Beogh-Allies' equipment specifics

Somebody just had a long thread on precisely this topic, not sure I think its in this forum tho so maybe search around?

Might be a good idea to put this information in his help screen somewhere, seeing as how often it gets asked.

Re: Make Ce normal speed (was: Drop rates still need a some

Ba hopping 4 tiles in one turn like a semi-controlled blnk is very different from a centaur speed boost where you have to move thru each tile turn for turn. The two species are radically different on other aspects as well. I dont see a problem there at all.

Maybe give centaurs a "burst of speed" ability in the A menu, to preserve some of their flavor and mechanic, but not break the game entirely. Use it and it starts a cool down timer and gives the centaur a speed boost for X amount of turns for as long as the centaur keeps moving (so no hit ...
