    New Playable Race: Gargoyles

    Players may now create gargoyle characters as members of the Gargoyle Race.

    • Gargoyles are unable to ride mounts.
    • Some locations in Ter Mur and the Stygian Abyss Dungeon are only reachable via flight.
      • When flying, gargoyles move at mounted speed.
    • Gargoyles cannot wear Leather/Plate/Chain/Studded armor, only new Gargoyle Armors.
    • Gargoyles cannot equip most weapons (War Fork, Katana, Staff, etc.)
    • Gargoyles cannot learn Archery or use bows.
      • Gargoyles instead use the long-ranged skill Throwing.
    • Berserk - In situations of great danger, a Gargoyle's natural ferocity will take over, granting speed and power at the cost of defenses.
    • Master Artisan - A strong cultural emphasis on art and craftsmanship grants the Gargoyles an increased chance to imbue, enhance, and unravel magical items.
    • Deadly Aim - All Gargoyles are trained from childhood in the skill of Throwing, giving them a basic competence with missile weapons.
    • Mystic Insight - Gargoyles have an intuitive understanding of Mysticism, allowing them to cast basic Mysticism spells without further training.
