absorb_dnaAbsorb the the target's DNA and their languages.
add_new_languagesStore the languages from the new_languages list into the absorbed_languages list. Teaches the changeling the new languages.

respecResets a changeling to the point they were when they first became a changeling, i.e no genetic points to spend, no non-innate powers, etc.
select_dnaPrompt the changeling with a list of names associated with their stored DNA. Return a /datum/dna based on the name chosen.

Proc Details

absorb_dna

Absorb the the target's DNA and their languages.

Arguments:

add_new_languages

Store the languages from the new_languages list into the absorbed_languages list. Teaches the changeling the new languages.

Arguments:

can_absorb_dna

Returns TRUE if the changeling can absorb the target mob's DNA.

Arguments:

get_dna

Gets a /datum/dna that matches the passed in tDNA. Also used as a check to see if the changeling has this DNA already stored.

Arguments:

get_powers_of_type

Gets a list of changeling action typepaths based on the passed in power_type.

Arguments:

give_power

Gives the changeling the passed in power. Subtracts the cost of the power from our genetic points.

Arugments:

remove_changeling_powers

Removes a changeling's abilities.

Arguments:

remove_unnatural_languages

Removes all the languages the mob L has absorbed throughout their life as a changeling and should no longer have.

Ignores languages the player has chosen from character creation, and species languages from the changeling mob's current species.

Arguments:

respec

Resets a changeling to the point they were when they first became a changeling, i.e no genetic points to spend, no non-innate powers, etc.

select_dna

Prompt the changeling with a list of names associated with their stored DNA. Return a /datum/dna based on the name chosen.

Arguments:

store_dna

Arguments:

trim_dna

Clears the most "stale" DNA from the absorbed_dna list.

try_respec

Respec the changeling's powers after first checking if they're able to respec.

update_languages

Teach the changeling every language in the absorbed_language list. Already known languages will be ignored.

using_stale_dna

Determines if the changeling's current DNA is stale.
