Before, we couldn’t even stand up straight; today, we can compete with the Gods...”

Skjald Yell'a'Beard



Since there was no definition of skills or their level in the beginning, tasks were simply completed to the best of one’s ability. Then people started to notice that others were better than them in some areas and used them for those tasks, while making minimal or no progress in other areas. This specialty and general beginner-level studies, as well as what was feasible. Resulted in the Skill system that is described below.

Skjald Valgrif



Skills, which have a wide range of definitions and are categorized into different groups depending on how equal they are, are what people can do;

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

Despite being distinct, each of these groups’ skills share some characteristics in terms of using tools, having stamina, focusing, etc. As a result, as one becomes more adaptable, they improve not only in their specific skill but also in the entire set of related skills. The degree of adaptability or mastery is not determined by a skill group but rather by each individual skill.

Characters gradually become dull and less accurate if their skills aren’t used; however, this decay can’t go below the current Rank and can be stopped by using that skill or skills from its Group.
