    GnollHack Feature Discussion

    Coming back to this game after a couple months. Nice to see that it has progressed from alpha to beta. I have a question about Monks. Now that martial arts is trained only after maxing out bare-hand combat, it seems like to achieve Grand Master skill would use all 36 of the Monk's max-level...
