Buy Skills

Buying Skills

  • You have (Intellect x Insight) skill points to buy your skills
  • The 1st rank in any Skill costs 1 Skill Point
  • The 2nd rank in any Skill costs 2 additional Skill Point
  • The 3rd rank in any Skill costs 3 additional Skill Point
  • The 4th rank in any Skill costs 4 additional Skill Points
  • The 5th rank in any Skill costs 5 additional Skill Points.
  • No skill can begin play at 6
  • Only Guild Skills can begin play over 3

Ex: If a character had 5 Strength, 5 Agility, and 6 Endurance he would have 24 Skill points to spend on Physique Skills. If that character decided to buy the One-handed skill at 3 ranks, it would cost him 6 Skill Points, however having that skill at 5 ranks would cost 15 Skill Points; and would also require membership in a Guild that teaches this skill to their members.

Using the Skills

  • To make a Skill Check, Add your Skill Ranks to the Attribute being used. Roll this many D6’s
  • Most Skill Checks need a 4, 5 or 6 on a d6 to Succeed
  • A skill of 0 Ranks means that you need a 6 to succeed
  • Certain skills are so specific that untrained use reduces the Dice Pool by 3d6
  • Unless the Check is an opposed roll, you usually only need 1 Success
  • If the Check is an Opposed roll, you need to have more successes than the Opponent
  • Defender always wins if an opposed roll is a tie.
  • If you are not sure who the Defender is (as in opening locks or disabling traps) you are not it.
