A condensed character creation system has been added to the mod allowing you to pick all of your character background options, starting location and set many game options on a single screen prior to entering the game. Many of the native background options have been altered slightly as well as several new ones have been added. You can now see what your attribute and skill benefits will be for a given combination prior to entering the game on this screen.
Some minor skill changes have been made to the native skills, but mostly in how they tie in with new features. In addition to this a new skill has been added to the game as well. Here you can find a list of every skill change or new skill in the mod.
Minor changes to the bonuses given by character attributes have been made and are described here.
