Reading the Tome of Mastery

The Tome of Mastery allows the Hero/ine to choose between 2 specializations of their class.

Reading the Tome of Mastery to select a sub-class requires 10 turns (fewer, with Ring of Haste).

To get the Tome of Mastery, the Hero/ine must defeat the 2nd boss - Tengu. Tengu will drop the Tome of Mastery, along with a skeleton key.

Once a particular class of Hero/ine has acquired the Tome of Mastery, every time a new game is started with that class, that Hero/ine will have the Tome of Mastery in their backpack.
