Nex-Mex Skills[edit | edit source]

These Necromantic skills are learned by reading Nex-Mex Textbooks. These can be obtained from encounters with Cultists and from other sources. While riding a pale horse, you will sometimes encounter random events that give you Nex-Mex textbooks.

Meddling with the Dark Arts comes with a price. While your first Nex-Mex book will not cause you harm, each subsequent book read will grant you a negative "perk" that weakens you in some way. Of note, the weakened muscle trait grants a permanent -25 melee damage penalty, which could cripple characters who would otherwise specialize in melee.

If Doc Alice is your companion, learning Nex-Mex skills will anger her. She will warn you each time you attempt to learn a Nex-Mex skill.
