    I found this in dungeons of dredmor\expansion3\game\skillDB.xml while poking around in the game files, just to get inspiration for possible mods. And it's when I saw this unused skillset:
    <!-- Electric Warrior -->
    <!-- like some kind of magical bard warrior -->
    <skill name="Electric Warrior" id="51" type="warrior" description="For those about to Rock.">
      <art icon="skills/electric_warrior64.png"/>
    <ability name="Electric Warrior" icon="skills/electric_warrior64.png" skill="51" startSkill="1">
      <description text="For those about to rock."/>
    <ability name="Axe Smasher" icon="skills/electric_warrior64.png" skill="51" level="0">
      <description text="Rock out with a brutal attack that gets stronger as you get drunker."/>
    <ability name="Power Chord" icon="skills/electric_warrior64.png" skill="51" level="1">
      <description text="You've got the power. Boost your attack power at the expense of your defence."/>
    <ability name="Turn It Up" icon="skills/electric_warrior64.png" skill="51" level="2">
      <description text=""/>
    <ability name="Heavy Metal" icon="skills/electric_warrior64.png" skill="51" level="3">
      <description text="A balls-to-the-wall dashing power attack, fast as a shark."/>
    <ability name="Set the Stage" icon="skills/electric_warrior64.png" skill="51" level="4">
      <description text="Shock and burn your enemies with stage lights and pyrotechnics. You're really good live."/>
    <ability name="Power Ballad" icon="skills/electric_warrior64.png" skill="51" level="5">
      <description text="This heart-wrenching, lighter-waving ballad from the depths of your soul inflicts massive existential damage. It may, however, put some listeners to sleep."/>
    Why wasn't it used? Didn't it work out in internal testing? (Just curious, I love to hear out about what worked and didn't during devolopment ;)) I see it have a (single) skill icon related to it. This is not the first unused element I see within the dredmor files, but this did catch my attention.

    As far as I remember it wasn't particularly filled out and we ran out of time so it didn't make it.

    Could it be patched in later?

    Boring name too. How about Electric Dragon 80000V?

    How about TESLANATOR! Make a skill in there about pigeons, maybe with laser eyes.

    Canceled for import because it gave kids seizures. (you win bonus 90's points for getting this)

    Its a reference to the seminal glam rock album by T. Rex!

    BOOOOOOOOOZE! :mana_regen: So if this made it in to CotW I could chug all my absinthe and pan-galactic gargle blasters and blast the snot out of Dred?

    Pokemon Porygon episode with all these funny explosions?
    That would be my guess...
