Give jesters a choice of several rodents

Hi there,

I was wondering if it would be possible to give Jesters several different rodents to choose from for the function now always served by suicide mice. Kinda like weapon specialization by Knights. So, you could have chipmunks, squirrels, rats, opossums, etc. Each rodent would have a different function and effect, but the Jester would have to specialize and could only have one. Maybe have one rodent give buffs, another useful for espionage, a third give traps of sort, etc.

As long as it wasn't unbalanced, it would give the Jesters more choices, and that's good, right?

Thank you for reading my idea.

    You are holding:


       A garnet sparrow, a platinum whistle, a gem of cloaking, a Fluvian jar, an adolescent racing snail, 14 soulspears, a sleek black otter, a great scarred walrus, a formidable sea-spray albatross, a sun-hued kitten, winged lizard of brilliant azure, a midnight blue draught horse, a dappled grey destrier, cyclopian seafoam nytrow, and the heart of a mortal, still dripping blood.

    I think she'll be just fiiiine.

    Shifting and roiling, insubstantial seafoam coalesces to sketch the outline of this captivating equine. Faint hints of oceanic blues and greens are revealed in his otherwise icy hue, the colours identical to the bubbling froth left by breaking waves. Closer inspection reveals the furious beast has no actual pelt, his seething black blood coursing through veins bared to all, creating a sinuous network that pulses over tissue and muscle. A noxious vapour wafts from the animal's maw, and the singular eye that rests atop his forehead glares an angry crimson, ancient secrets writ in the depths. He is called 'Aphros.'

    As for the idea, it sounds pretty interesting, but it also sounds like a rework for Jester in a sense (after all, the knights specialisation did also require a huge rework), and that's definitely more in the realm of classleads and Makarios and co. That's a really big change for a mostly untouched (other than nerfing or small adjustments) class throughout the years. Not that it makes it a bad idea - it's interesting for sure - but it's a lot bigger than some flavour changes.

    Please rework jesters into something A) Enjoyable to fight against, B) A little less random (and therefore reliant on scripts to track things like bomb timers etc)
