Pickpocket - 1 Level / 4 Energy. Melee-range spell that has a 30(+Character Level * 4) chance to produce a randomly created item (just like a treasure chest from that level). Can only be attempted once per monster.

Any creature inside the smoke 40 point bonus to Evade and loses 40 points of Accuracy. The smoke should reduce in visibility (alpha) every turn, but on the last frame it should flash on-off quickly so that players know it's about to disappear next turn. Monsters who are inside the smoke have a 25% chance every turn to become Confused while they are inside the smoke, but once the smoke is gone the debuff should be too.
Leap Attack - 3 Level / 5 Energy. A melee-range spell. The Skellyman jumps over a monster and does an attack. This attack can be a Backstab if the enemy was facing the skellyman when she cast it. The spell does not take up a turn.

Skelly Vengeance - 1 Level / 0 Energy. Creates a Backstab Counter on the game screen. When you use the ability it performs a special melee attack that deals more damage based on your char level and the number of backstabs. The max backstabs are 3. This ability does not require a melee weapon to be equipped, as she pulls the dagger out of her skull to use it (it's a bit like Whack of Glory).
Marksmanship - 1 Level - Works with Bows, Throwing Knives and Daggers (when thrown). Gives the Skellyman the ability to pierce through targets (50% chance per target), as well as pin targets to walls (50% chance to immobilize them for 2-5 turns) if they are adjacent to one. Also increases her accuracy with the bow and ALL throwing by 40 points (makes it so that you actually can shoot people inside smokebombs).
Evade Up - 1 Level - Gives the Skellyman a permanent 10% bonus to Evade.
Blood Buff - When the Skellyman causes blood to fly from an enemy (via crits or just normal attacks), she recovers 5 HP.

Note: This has been updated December 2011. Dinoman abilities all have one level.
The Dinoman has lots of Health and Strength. He cannot wear armor, but he can always wield heavy weapons such as axes and hammers. He starts with 75 max belly instead of 100. He also takes 20% more damage from Magical attacks. Many of his abilities cost belly, but he can eat items and monsters (when in Dinosaur form) to get belly.
Stats: He should have more STR AND HP (especially HP) than any other class. However, he should have crap EP. I'd like it if he started with 8 energy and this only crawled up, maybe to 12 by the end of the game.
Branch 1 - Food oriented
- Power Chew - Can consume ANY item for a small amount of belly (Sell value / 4). Eating weapons increase strength by .1, but reduce current HP by 1/4. Eating armor increases max health by 5.

If you hit a monster, you deal your normal attack damage * (TilesRan-1). You continue through monsters, displacing them as you go (preferably to a perpendicular direction). If you hit a wall, you take 2*TilesRan Damage.
- Adrenaline - Chaining monster kills grants you HP. If you kill two monsters in two turns, you get 1 HP. If you kill two monsters in one turn, you get 2 HP. If you kill 3 monsters in one turn, 3 HP, and so on.
