The idea is to let the player change some characteristics of its race when joining a game. Some characteristics are negative and gives points, others are bonus are reduce points. To be able to take bonus, player has to take negative characteristics.
Those suggestions are official. The core developers think they are implementable reasonably.
Users can add their suggestions here. They will be reviewed and, if doable, will be added to official ones.
Persuasive: Inns are twice as likely to convert enemy units
Immune to conversion:
Regeneration: Units regenerate hitpoints without a hospital (hospitals are still useful because the regeneration is slow).
Athletic: Units can preform more actions in between meals
Vampires: Enemy units killed respawn at twenty percent health and switch sides.
Damage Shield: A percentage of damage is reflected back to the attacker
Earthbound: Explorers cannot fly
Jumpers : the units can jump over 1 blocking square (wheat, tree, fruit, stone, wall, water, forbidden squares, other globs,...)
