"Great Tracker"
« on: March 15, 2012, 07:04:57 pm »

I had this random peasant show up during a migrant wave:

His skills aren't unusual, until you reach the bottom. What *is* the "tracker" skill, anyway? Does it do anything?

Tracker is used for finding animals, IIRC.
So you should make that guy a hunter.

Actually no, I'm fairly certain it does nothing now that I think about it.

It's some skill that worldgen beast hunters get. Useless in fortress mode AFAIK.

Hell I had a peasant just like you a few hours ago, and it was a great tracker as well, but had quite better military skills.

I am 100% sure this guy wears loads of bone bracelets, nail rings and other useless crap. Also check his kill list.

Nope, he has the standard loadout of cloth and silk clothing. That's all he brought with him.

EDIT: What the hell, a metalcrafter came with all of his body parts (save his upper body) yellow and his cheeks and eyelids brown.

It's the skill that causes trails of forgotten beast blood to get tracked through the dining halls.

Don't tell anyone that you can see their shadows. If they hear you telling anyone, if you let them know that you know of them, they will get you.
