4.13.1 Tekal

A Tekal is a mortal of extreme experience who has transcended their former race to take on the form of a nearly perfect mortal being. Their name derives from an ancient word for 'Hollow One', and is a reference to their choice to let their form be uninfluenced by the struggle between life and death. The reward for their diligence in perfecting themselves is a superb physical form that enables them to resist many attacks, as well as quick reflexes, both mental and physical.

Note: The race you are when you ascend to Tekal will become your Heritage.
      HELP HERITAGE For more information.

Once a Tekal reaches the level of 100 they may choose to become either Azudim, Yeleni or Idreth. They will continue to have the same racial skills as the Tekal, and they will also have the additional skills depending on their racial choice.

For Yeleni and Azudim, one must INSTILL ESSENCE OF <LIFE|DEATH> IN MYSELF. For Idreth, one must TRANSCEND SELF.

In addition to the above, there is a system for obtaining racial skills as a Tekal:

RACESKILL POINTS
- Lists how many Skill points you have.

RACESKILL CHOICES
- Lists the choices of skills available for you to select.

RACESKILL LIST
- Lists the skills that you currently have.
 
RACESKILL SELECT <skill>
- You will use up however many points <skill> costs, and obtain that skill.
  RACESKILL SELECT LANGUAGE <lang>
- Lets you select a free language, can only be used once.

Tekal can also access their Haven, which is a space that is both willpower and yet tangible. HELP HAVENS will explain more about them.

Every 25% experience above 100 will give a Haven Point, which can be used to expand the haven or be converted into a raceskill point to invest into the raceskill choices. To monitor this:

HAVENS SHOW
- Lists your haven rooms and how many points you have remaining.

HAVENS CONVERT <x> TO SKILL POINTS
-  Converts the designated number of haven points into race skill points.
   This cannot be undone.

HAVENS on its own will return the full list of syntaxes.
