Whether you're unhappy that your custom character is stuck with Dome of Protection or you'd just prefer a different origin skill than the one you've got, this mod has a solution for you! Now with the option to rehash your racial skills too!

Book of Origins provides the player with a book, that when read, allows you to select what your Origin skill and Racial skill should be out of the 7 and 5 total skills respectively. You may also select your racial talents such as Corpse Eater and Ancestral Knowledge.

I've renamed 'Summon Ifan's Soul Wolf' to 'Summon Soul Wolf' to fit other characters now, but this is purely a cosmetic change. Any mod you might have altering the actual skill will be unaffected.

Can be installed mid-game with no hassle, as it's just adding a book to your characters. It has no weight and no monetary value so it shouldn't be a bother to be in your inventory. Store it in a bag if you don't want to look at it.

Norbyte Script Extender
To circumvent an issue with the game not showing talents specific to other races in the talent menu, I needed to modify the UI. This is only possible using the Norbyte Script Extender. This mod is functional without it, but to see for example Corpse Eater on a Lizard, you would need the extender.

Attention Localisers!
Please head over to the Github once more. I've added additional functionality to this mod that required more dialog. Therefore all translations will need to be updated.

@frasdoge I tried to ask is it only for custom characters that you create at the beginning of the game or can we use it on recruitable companions xD I guess it works for both.

It still works perfectly for me in SP.

@Petrichor I don't really understand what you mean. It works on the player-controllable character that reads the book. If you want to use it in a playthrough with friends, your friends will also have to install the mod.

Does this mod works on companions? I'll join my friends mid game and want to customize that companion as much as possible.

Don't know what to tell you... I just tested on a new game and an in-progress game and it gives the book just fine. Check everyone has actually enabled the mod.

The book hasn't appeared in my inventory or my friends inventories and we're at the room with all the NPC's on the ship.

@Mira113 It should be fixed now.

@Revan The book appears in your inventory automatically.

@Mira113 I'll look into it. I've been very busy with work lately.

Racial skill and talent reverts to base when a transformation effect ends(getting turned into a chicken). This means we can lose our desired racial talent and skill in the middle of a fight and be unable to regain them until after the fight since we can't use the book mid fight.
