Scholar (Adventure Map)
|Scholar as seen on the Adventure Map.|
Scholar is an Adventure Map object, that teaches a hero +1 to one of the primary skills, or one level of secondary skill, or a spell. The map-maker can define which primary skill, which secondary skill or which spell the scholar teaches, or it can be random.
If the Scholar teaches a secondary skill that a hero already has, it will teach it to the next level (e.g. from Basic to Advanced). If the hero has the secondary skill already at Expert level, the teaching will be random. The same happens if the Scholar teaches a spell and the hero has no spell book or sufficient level of Wisdom to learn it. Thus, the Scholar always teaches the hero something, and disappears after that.
The problem with Scholars is, that one cannot know what it teaches before it teaches it. This becomes problematic, if the Scholar teaches an unwanted secondary skill.
