    Attack and Defend - Ins/LM
    Manuveur and Feint - Scout

    objections?

    I imagine you'd need an awfully light wagon for it to pulled by an insect, unless we're talking about something big, like a goliathus or something. Otherwise, yeah, that seems reasonable, if not quite related to the thread as a whole.

    Marginally more related, does Insectrist only apply to actual insects, or does also include things like arachnids, crustaceans, and annelids?

    It includes everything like that besides Bees. There is an extra skill for Bees called Apiary(and it's awesome).

    Basically all the stuff that makes me go iiiiiirrrrrrggghhhhh is covered by both of these skills.

    Wait, there's a skill that lets us train riding/killer BEES? We must have it.

    You can use it to Placate or Anger Bees or make them swarm someone. Also to produce wax or honey.

    Loremouse is used to speak with animals and train them as mounts (and it is hard, believe me i saw a mouse try to tame a fox)

    Eh. I mean, I get bees are a meme and all, but if stuff like spiders, wasps, beetles, and especially crabs are all covered by Insectrist, I think it might be the better choice. I mean, if we can somehow get our paws on one of these guys, I think we'll be set. We don't even need to ride it, just sic it on anything not expecting to have to deal with a big crab, that we want out of the way.

    Where we're going to find a tropical island-dwelling crab in a forest is a completely different issue than if we can train it.

    Also, Team Buglords is winning 3-2 in the bandwagon race, by my count.

    So it seems like Insect Mouse beats Dessert Mouse and Tool Mouse by 3-2-2.

    So our Mouse get's a point in Insectrist and was a Defender of the City.

    The next big step is choosing skills. We break this up into multiple parts.

    1. What area is your mouse naturally talented in?
    There is a big ass list of ALL the skills in the game and we get to choose ONE skill from it. This skill will get a point.
    (by the way, in the end of the skill point process every skill that was activated get's an additional point so a broad choice get's you a bit more then specialisation)

    The skills are:

    Administrator - managing facilities, outposts etc.
    Glazier
    Apiarist
    Haggler
    Archivist - writing novels and reports etc.
    Harvester
    Armorer - making weapons and armor
    Healer
    Baker
    Hunter - fighting animals, finding them, building traps and snares
    Boatcrafter - building and sailing boats
    Insectrist
    Brewer
    Instructor - helps other people to improve their skills
    Carpenter
    Laborer
    Cartographer
    Loremouse
    Cook
    Militarist - raising up armies and leading them in battle
    Deceiver
    Miller
    Fighter - for fighting mice and animals. You can't fight mice with hunter
    Orator
    Pathfinder - going from A to B and blazing new trails
    Persuader
    Potter
    Scientist
    Scout - the "ninja" skill. Following tracks, finding hidden things, staying hidden
    Smith - making tools
    Stonemason
    Survivalist - finding water and shelter, making makeshift tools and boats
    Weather Watcher - more like control weather
    Weaver

    My vote goes to Hunter. Though I wouldn't complain if we ended up going Scout or Pathfinder instead.
