This addin allows the player to reset the base attributes, specialization points, spells, talents
and skills of the hero character and any of the party members to the default values and returns
the remaining points so they can be spent again.

The addin takes into account every bonus point the characters receive during the game including
CE and DLC items, tomes, bonus points from the Fade, etc...

UPDATE Version 1.6 it out!
==========================
The latest version of the mod is up on the site.

1.6 - Added: Confirmation screen to ensure no accidental character resets can happen.
1.6 - Added: Welcome screen
1.6 - Added: A couple of random RP lines
1.6 - Added: More mysterious Ravens appear all over Ferelden! Keep an eye out for them.

Known issues:
- If the player cancels the respecialization the potion might become unusable for everyone else but the character that tried to respec. Working on the fix, in the meanwhile just delete the potion and get a new one.

IMPORTANT
=========
This mod pokes around with your character statistics, use it at your own risk.
At least save your game before you try it!

The mod does not grant you character specializations that are tied to the campaign,
such as Champion, Reaver, Blood Mage and Duelist. However, if you have acquired these
specializations throughout the storyline you are not losing them either.

You can use the Raven NPC to learn all of the specialization skills that can be bought
from the vendors. This is mainly to help people respec low level characters that have a
specialization (Morrigan, Alistair, ..) before the player had any chance of acquiring
the respective specialization books.

HOW TO USE IT
=============
Most of the mods functionality can be accessed through a mysterious Raven that popped up in the
player camp. (The raven only shows in those instances of the camp where no cinematics or combat
scenes are happening)

To help people respecialize Morrigan and Alistar before the player camp area opens up in the game,
an additional Raven has been added to the exterior area of Flemeth's hut.
(Look for the base of the ruined statue)

Hold TAB key to find them easier or check the screenshots.

INSTALLATION
============
Use "bin_ship\daupdater.exe" from your Dragon Age: Origins installation directory to
install downloadable content.

In case you wish to remove the addon, all you have to do is delete the "WRK_RESPEC_MOD"
folder from: Documents\\BioWare\\Dragon Age\\AddIns\WRK_RESPEC_MOD


SOURCE CODE
===========
The source code is also available as a Builder-To-Load package for those who wish to learn more
about scripting through this addon and I actually encourage everyone else to do the same for
the benefit of the whole modding community.

USE THE SOURCE CODE AT YOUR OWN RISK. YOU CAN CAUSE SERIOUS HARM TO YOUR GAME IF YOU DON'T PAY
ATTENTION
