Heroquest Advanced rules pt 2- Skills

We invented an experience points system to develop characters. Adventurers get 10XP for completing a quest, plus 1XP for each body point of monsters they kill (themselves, not as a party), plus any arbitrary XP awarded by the evil wizard player. Between quests these XP can be swapped for skills. There are four base skills (warrior, scout, sorceror and artisan) which are available to all characters. Each character may buy up to 2 of these base skills which then allow other skills to be bought (for example, a barbarian could buy the scout skill and then buy any further scout or scout barbarian skills in the list, if they also bought the artisan skill they could buy scout, scout barbarian, artisan, artisan barbarian and artisan scout skills). As an aside, the sorceror base skill does not allow a dwarf or barbarian to use spells, it merely allows them to pick other skills from this list (which may in turn allow them to use spells). So a barbarian picking the pyromancy skill would be largely pointless since he is unable to use fire spells in any case.
