Beautiful and terrible as the morn! Treacherous as the Seas! Stronger than the foundations of the Earth! All shall love you and despair! Your troops are yours and yours alone, and they think of you as their leader, not some dark elf lady they've never met or a dragon they don't know. Your troops will rarely refuse commands.

  54.  
  55. ) Enchantment of the Spotted Turtle - You've always thought spotted turtles were pretty. And now you have a grace to match their beauty! While spinning or using any other turtle maneuver and attack, you can no longer be knocked off balance and gain greater control over the direction! ) Softshell Soft Belly - You know for a fact that softshell turtles have soft, cute bellies. And while your own stomach is soft and also cuter than any of those flabby "beautiful women" those boys go on about, the lesson here is this: Everyone has their own metaphysical "soft belly"! And you know just where to find it! Turtle Attacks and attacks while in a turtle stance will aim and strike weakpoints without fail!

  62.  
  63. ) Rahzar's Wild Ride - Never stop moving! With Rahzar's Wild Ride, you will be able to move in a controlled manner while attacking everything around you! No more shaking about uncontrollably. On top of this, you have heightened defensive reflexes! The downside is you get really exhausted doing this, and you can't do it for very long.
  64.  
  65. ) Struggle of the Sea Turtle - Sea Turtle babies fight for their lives the moment they are born! The trials of these adorable reptiles are something you can sympathize with. You get a large increase in general toughness!

  86.  
  87. ) Why Fight When You Can Poison? - Well, you can sneak. That means you can probably sneak poison in on a tough opponent. You've got a big sword, but that doesn't mean there are guys you can always beat with it. It's best to leave your options open! You become passingly familiar with poisons and can start implementing them in your tactics effectively.
  88.  
  89. ) Courage of the Non-Goblin - This ability allows you to pass any sort of fear check you might face. Including supernatural or spell based fear attacks! You also can agree to more bold plans than you would normally agree to.
