Skills List

Here’s our master list of skills that can be ranked up. Most skills are rolled, and can often be combined with other relevant skills to get a higher bonus.

For example, if I’ve got one rank in Swords and another rank in One-Handed Melee Weapons I can add them together to get +2 on my roll.

Some skills are always used this way – in concert with another primary skill being used.

A few skills just have static effects that don’t have a lot to do with rolling at all – such as Linguistics, which offers you a new language for every skill rank.
