Skills represent practice, training, and knowledge in an ability of any sort. Each skill is listed as both a name and a stat; the stat is added to the skill level to create an effective skill level. Most skills are for the purposes represented by their name, though a few have special other abilities.

Skill Generation and AdvancementEdit

A character starts off with skill ranks equal to 1/2 their Intelligence, rounded, to be put into any skill of their choice. A player can never have more skill ranks thank their Intelligence.

Skills advance by earning experience points. They earn five times 1/6 their Intelligence times the difficulty penalty in experience points. If there is no modifier, they earn five times 1/6 their Intelligence experience points. If there is a bonus, they earn five times 1/6 their Intelligence divided by one more than the modifier. In math terms:

E = experience points earned
I = 1/6 Intelligence, unrounded
M = check modifier
If M < 0, E = 5I|M|
If M = 0, E = 5I
If M > 0, E = 5I/(M+1), rounded

A skill levels up when their total experience points reach a certain amount, as according to the following table.
