A full list of skills is available.

Skills are specific abilities, such as riding a horse, being able to pick pockets, or read. There are a great many of these skills in the game and they play an important part. To determine how many skills a character has, roll D4 and modify the result by the character's age.

The following chart gives the standard modification for different age brackets. There is a separate column for each race because they mature and age at different rates - 70 is very old for a Human, but quite young for a Dwarf or Elf.

Determining SkillsEdit

To determine a character's skills, find the skill chart for the chosen Career Class - Warrior, Ranger, Rogue, or Academic. There are some mandatory skills for each race, explained below, and these must be taken before other skills are rolled. If the character has some skills left to determine, they are randomly generated by a percentage roll on the appropriate skill chart.


Mandatory SkillsEdit

Humans: The main advantage Humans have is that they are versatile. Human characters roll for all their initial skills randomly on the skill chart for their chosen Career Class.

Elves: All Elves have Excellent Vision. If the character has two or more initial skills, the second will be from Dance, Musicianship, or Sing, with an equal chance of each. Any remaining initial skills should be rolled randomly on the skill chart for the chosen Career Class.

Dwarfs: All Dwarfs have Mining. If the character has two or more initial skills, the second will be one from Smithing or Metallurgy, with an equal chance of of each. Any remaining initial skills should be rolled randomly on the skill chart for the chosen Career Class.

Halflings: All Halflings can Cook. If the character has two or more initial skills, the second will be one from Herb Lore, Specialist Weapon: Sling, or Silent Move: Rural, with an equal chance of each. Any remaining initial skills should be rolled randomly on the skill chart for the chosen Career Class.

Gnomes: All Gnomes have Smithing. If the character has two or more initial skills, the second will be one of Jest, Mining, or Stoneworking, with an equal chance of each. Any remaining initial skills should be selected at random from the appropriate skill chart for the chosen Career Class.

Skill ChartsEdit

The following charts are used to determine characters' initial skills. Once a player has determined how many skills the character has, roll a D100 for each (after checking the Mandatory Skills above) and consult the appropriate table and column for the character's race and Career Class. If the same skill is rolled twice, ignore the second result and roll again.
