Yes, I shamefully neglected to fix that during play testing. I fixed it after I uploaded. So I must apologize.
The skills your protagonists can use are entirely intentional. They were meant to have more skills, but due to the limited time (and me managing it poorly) I was not confident enough in adding them in without them breaking the combat even further. Also, the game had a bit more dialogue after Tabitha said "Land, ho!", again another mistake I happened to fix after I uploaded it.
I do plan on uploading a patched version soon. Again, I apologize if this came off as more of a disappointment than anything.
