I just have to say I love the patch and I'm grateful people like you exist. Keep moving forward no matter what anyone says.
That doesn't mean I have no suggestions however (feel free to ignore them, you probably aren't taking any at this point, I just need to vent them out, y'know eh?):
•Move Roy's promotion a little sooner in the game. I am not QUITE at the part where he becomes a problem, but I constantly hear people kvetch about the fact. Not to mention it prevents him from leveling up.
•Add Assassins and Monks into the mix, as well as (obviously) Fell Contracts: I love using Thieves and Assassins and the games repeatedly shortchange them in terms of promotions. Steal and pick are nice skills, but can't Assassins be programmed to do that? As for monks, it's just for balance and the fact they are startlingly absent from most games. Potential reclass candidates from Thief to Assassin (using current names): Astol (because of his status as a spy)| Potential reclass candidates from mage/ healer to monk: Saul (but he IS supposed to need a bodyguard), Lugh (whose name comes from a Gaelic light god- not to mention he's paired with Ray- a dark magic user), Ellen (to distance herself from the 'Lena' pigeonhole).
•Add 10% to Wendy's speed growths to make her marginally useful.
•Rename healers (sisters/ priests) "curates" to make the class unisex.
•Change the following names: Dieck -> Deke (actual first name > obscure surname), Alan -> Alain (fits the Katakana), Ellen -> Erin (fits the Katakana), Trec(k) -> Taureck (name of a scientist who worked on Thymidine- the baby deformer painkiller- Trec(k) is not a name), Ray -> Lleu (it's Welsh), Igrene -> Igraine (Arthurian legend), Oujay -> Ogier (French, Song of Roland), Astol -> Astor (actual name), Yuno -> Juno (Latin, actual name), Niime-> Nimue (It's Welsh), Cath -> Kath (more common shortening- also Cath means battle in Irish I think, while Katherine mean's 'she's the summit'- more fitting for a thief) Yodel-> Jodle (Danish composer and singer), Gonzales -> Gonzalez (z is pronounced "th" in Castilian Spanish in most positions), Thani -> Shani (actual Hebrew name).
•Change Marcus's sprite color to orange to match up with Blazing Sword, and also Zealot shares a similar tint of purple.
•Change "cnt" (control?) into "use" and "conquer" into "seize" to match the other localizations.
•Add more to certain player character and boss descriptions (i.e. prevent them from being merely a "knight from Ostia").
