x0_i0_talent[edit]

Library for talent functions.

All of these functions attempt to use a particular category of skill, and return TRUE on success, FALSE on failure. This allows for building up fall-through chains where one talent after another is attempted, with the order determined by the creature's particular tactics.

NOTE: This file includes x0_inc_generic .
