    Looks like a Sub Skill for Unarmed Combat is Bell Ringer, allows for spending Stamina to deliver a Punch to the head of a person to Stun a person for up to 3 Seconds.

    If you can swing it and if it packs a punch. Nearly anything can be weaponized.

    Unarmed combat increases stamina so that one feeds into itself.

    There may very well be other Types of Cultivation available then just God/Clergy Faith Cultivation, say Physical or Stamina/Chi, or a Mana or a Mental Cultivation methods?

    There could be a physical mana cultivation. It could be similar to the way Ricther empowers a golem. Instead of imbuing a golem with mana it could be based on some fractional system. Where they mana drain and absorb mana from something. It would be to powerful and offer to fast a growth to be a one for one. Or it could be like stretching your Chi. Where your mana reservoir has to be stretched to hold more mana.

    A Sub Skills that allows you to Incorporate at least Some of your Herb Lore and Alchemy Knowledge&Skill into your Cooking Skill (and vice versa) might be very Useful.

    He should also look into what Skills Improve and give Secondary and Tertiary Stats and learn them when possible, and looking into learning Resistance Enhancing Skills.

    I'd also like to see Richter gain Repair Skills, Tailing/Sewing Skills, a Drawing/Art Skill and to improve his Music Skills.

    An Item from the Sea of Chaos that would allow Richter to (very) Occasional learn a Beasts Racial Physical Attack Skills would be interesting. Say he could possibly learn a Beasts Charge Skill, or Claw, Stomp, Bite, Butt, Roar, ect. Many of them could be of use in aiding in the use of UnArmed Combat and would probably help in Levelling that Skill.

    Having Richter Learn the Dungeon Logistics Skill would be very useful for Dungeon Diving.

    I Also think having him Learn the Research Skill and the Teaching Skill might be useful, and might also give Secondary Stats as well. Also Find out if there are any Sub-Skills related to Research and Teaching Skills.

    Also look into finding out if there is a UnderWater Combat Skill for the use of Combat Weapons might be interesting and potentially useful once he starts using Boats and Ships more.
    Also look into Learning Mounted Combat Skills once the Skaths are ready for use as Mounts.

    I like the idea of the wood artist using the whole boat as his canvas. Maybe a boat carving subskill.

    I'd quite like to see Richter befriend a Lillithid(/Mind Flayer) or similar, it would be interesting to see what Mental/Psionic/Thought Skills (&Spells) that he might be able to Learn from him, as well as what Racial Skills might be available for Richter to Learn from him as well.

    Alternatively what would happen to Alma if she was to Brain Drain a Mind Flayer or other Thought creature? Might she get a Boost in her abilities or even gain a new ability?
    For that matter when she eventually gains the ability to Learn Skills it will be interesting to see what Racial Psi Dragon Skills she might be able to Learn and what Skills she might be able to Teach Richter?

    Am wondering whether Cloth Armour/Robes is a distinct Armour Skill of its own or if it is a Sub-Skill of Light Armour or just a regular part of the Light Armour Skill.

    I'm thinking not, it'd be too similar to normal clothes. Anything thick enough to provide real defense would still be cumbersome enough to be defined under light armor. Plus they're has to be some sort of balance, and light armor => no armor /just clothes seems like a logical progression step

    I’m not so sure about a malleable Iron making a good cloak.

    I’m not so sure about a malleable Iron robe either. Once formed it hardens according to the story. Although it can be reworked. If you had a malleable Iron cloak or robe when shot with a sling shot or arrow would you ring like a bell?

    I would like to see Ricther get a specialty skill for crafting with malleable iron. Perhaps he could learn to make different types of tools and items with a piece of malleable iron.

    For instance Ricther could make a key blank with malleable iron if he knew what type of key was used on a specific look. Afterwards the one time key wouldn’t work anymore. Then he could deconstruct the key rolling it into a ball. Later he might shape the malleable iron ball into a small door pick or a shim to jam a door. I small amount of malleable iron could be used in a lot of situations. Malleable iron might become Ricthers version of the sonic screwdriver.
