Character Skills

There are 26 Character Skills that govern how well a character can accomplish a task. If an action does not neatly fall into one of these skills, multiple checks can be made or a general Attribute check, at the GM's discretion.   Mechanics are the application of Skill or Attribute. See the list of Mechanics below for more information.     Skills have a -5+MOD when untrained. Training a Skill removes the -5 modifier. Focusing a Skill adds a +5 the skill modifier.
