Hi! I checked the dumplog file creation by taking the backup save game file of @hothraxxa's game and replicating the end game in the wizard mode on my local Linux installation. The game was running in the debugger all the time. It worked perfectly each way I tested it:
@hothraxxa We added manually the ascension now there. We did not know exact points, since the dumplog file was cut off and put 150000 there. Otherwise most of the fields could be discerned from the surviving dump log file fragment.
We are investigating this matter. It seems that the process crashed in the middle of writing the dump log file without any clear cause. It was able to write the last word as "Leve" and crashed at that point, which is very strange. But we will manually write your data into the xlogfile.

Since Monk starts with Basic in Martial arts, he needs to spend only 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = 26 skill points to reach Grand Master level, which leaves 9 skill points (35-26) to be spent on other skills. However, it is true that it is pretty costly this ways, and we might consider lowering it in some...
Maybe the difference would be that spears can hit also melee range but you need to increase the skill to expert to be able to hit SQRT(8) squares away. So,
- Unskilled: Cannot apply, or range of SQRT(4)
- Basic: SQRT(4) range
- Skilled: SQRT(5) range
- Expert: SQRT(8) range
I could also add that when the Lance uses the Spear skill, maybe we could make all spears be able to hit two squares away when applied. They work this way in Pathos. It would make spears more useful. I think they are now next to useless. But we could also think how they differ from polearms...
