About this mod

Allows you to choose your origin and racial skills on any character.

Permissions and credits
Whether you're unhappy that your custom character is stuck with Dome of Protection or you'd just prefer a different origin skill than the one you've got, this mod has a solution for you! Now with the option to rehash your racial skills too!

Book of Origins provides the player with a book, that when read, allows you to select what your Origin skill and Racial skill should be out of the 7 and 5 total skills respectively. You may also select your racial talents such as Corpse Eater and Ancestral Knowledge.

I've renamed 'Summon Ifan's Soul Wolf' to 'Summon Soul Wolf' to fit other characters now, but this is purely a cosmetic change. Any mod you might have altering the actual skill will be unaffected.

Can be installed mid-game with no hassle, as it's just adding a book to your characters. It has no weight and no monetary value so it shouldn't be a bother to be in your inventory. Store it in a bag if you don't want to look at it.

Norbyte Script Extender
To circumvent an issue with the game not showing talents specific to other races in the talent menu, I needed to modify the UI. This is only possible using the Norbyte Script Extender. This mod is functional without it, but to see for example Corpse Eater on a Lizard, you would need the extender.

Attention Localisers!
Please head over to the Github once more. I've added additional functionality to this mod that required more dialog. Therefore all translations will need to be updated.
