Legend

“Once we couldent even stand upright, now we match the Gods…”

Skjald Yell'a'Beard

 

History

In the beginning there was as such no definition of skills or their level, performing ones tasks where simply done to the best. Then individuals began to notice that others excelled in some areas and used them for those tasks, meanwhile improving in others themselves -if at all. This specialization and studies of general beginners level as well as what was possible. Led to the Skill system described below.

Organisation

Skills are what beings can do, a myriad of definitions, set in groups as some are somewhat equal;

Academic, Animal, Armour, Athletics, Combat, General, Magical, Perception, Social, Survival

Skills in each of these groups, albeit unique, are somewhat similar regarding tool handling, stamina usage, focusing, etc. So, as one becomes more and more adapt, one not only improve in said skill, but in the entire group of similar skills. The adaptness or mastery level, are not due to skill group but each separate skill.
