What are your talents? (part 1)
In Solar Echoes, there are special abilities that define your character and give him unique options, and these abilities are called talents. When you first build your character, you may select three talents. Every time your character gains a level, you may select one additional talent, and every four levels, your character also automatically gains a racially-specific talent. There are over 270 talents available to choose from in Solar Echoes, but most talents have prerequisites. Sometimes you need a certain number of ranks in a skill, other times you need to have previously selected a particular talent, and in some instances, you need a combination of skills and talent selections to qualify. The system is designed so you have to plan your character and really formulate, with each level, a vision for the type of character you want to play. The vast number of options and combinations that are possible guarantee that your character is going to be one-of-a-kind. But what types of talents are there?
