List of Skills





<img500*0:http://www.elftown.com/img/drawing/48479_1105203581.jpg>





Skills are divided into two kinds, Natural skills, which can be used by all characters and classes at any time, natural skills are those that do not require any training. And Class skills, class skills are generally more powerful than natural skills and are divided into three subgroups. Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 skills, Tier 3 being the weakest and Tier 1 being the strongest. Every two levels a character will earn a skill point, those skill points can be used to purchase any skill, more powerful skills require more skill points. Tier 3 Skills require 1 Skill Point, Tier 2 Skills require 2 skills points, and Tier 1 Skills require 3 skill points. Characters can stock as many skill points they want, they do not have to be used immediately, nevertheless, skill points can only be used when a character levels up. Some skills, like Improved Two Weapon Fighting, have prerequisites you need to acquire before you can purchase them.

NEW - Whenever you want to make a Roll and prevent the other party members from being aware of the result, you can do a Private Roll, a private Spot roll, for example, you just write (P Spot) next to your post instead of simply (Spot). That way the results will get sent to you in a message instead of being displayed for the entire party.

Skills have now been divided into "Skill Families" to allow for skill trades. Players must be aware that skill trade can only be requested, it must be approved by the GM. And GMs are advised to keep Skill Trade to an absolute minimum to ensure the game remains balanced.

2008-07-26 [Veltzeh]: I'm sure there are exceptions. I don't know (all of) them, though.

2008-07-26 [Silverbullet]: Well, my understanding was that skills cost 1 action and thus you could only use two in a turn.
Except for those like lightning speed, marksmanship and weapon mastery, which aren't exactly actions in themselves....

2008-07-28 [Blood Raven]: Dur did tell me some skills such as weapon mastery and rapid shot do not stack, nor do rapid reload firearms and moving shot, or something. Sounds to me like you can only use 1 active skill in a turn, unless it's exceptional such as lighting speed and stuff...

2008-08-07 [Gastogh]: What does "raw attack power" mean? All bonuses to attack except the one from the weapon itself?

2008-08-07 [Veltzeh]: I've taken it to mean that then only the character's STR score is added to the dice throw. The phrasing in the skill is contradictory.

2008-08-07 [Gastogh]: It seems odd that an archer wouldn't get Dex from his items to an attack roll just because he doesn't know the intricacies of handling a crossbow, especially since Dexterity signifies things such as hand-eye coordination and steady aim, but I suppose this is another one of those game balance calls...

2008-08-08 [Gastogh]: Does Stealth Attack work like D&D's sneak attack; that is, once per surprise round and no more after that? Or does it really mean that any attack made without the target seeing you deals double damage?

2008-08-08 [Veltzeh]: The latter, or so I'd rule.

2008-08-08 [Gastogh]: Awesome. Something is done right. ;D

2008-08-08 [Veltzeh]: D&D's Sneak attack doesn't work like you said, though. >_>

2008-08-08 [Gastogh]: It does go like that if you get the sneak only for the surprise round; it's gone after you use it once, even if you (would) have several attacks per round. Being flanked or the sort, that's different.

2008-08-08 [Blood Raven]: well, as a rogue, it's your talent to create surprise rounds even in the midst of combat :P
When I played a rogue, I was constantly hiding and moving silently in combat. One round, I was spraying daggers everywhere, the next I was gone, or so I hoped, anyway :P

2008-08-11 [Gastogh]: Does Followup Hit work so that you get the next attack even if your enemy blocks the attack? That's technically a "hit", even if no damage is dealt.

In Party 7 (The Fell Woods - Ruined Asheihl) there's an instance where Elyse seems to be using Folloup Hit at an opponent who blocks the strikes (they hit without dealing damage). Does the notion of an *unlimited amount of attacks* against an opponent who blocks instead of dodging seem off to anyone else?

2008-08-11 [Silverbullet]: Hum, if memory serves, Elyse was just one or two points short of causing damage, so I considered it a hit.. Had the difference between the rolls been greater than, say, 5, I would have said something about the enemy throwing her off-balance and foiling her next follow-ups.. :D

2008-08-11 [Gastogh]: A fair enough ruling, but is that the way it's done elsewhere as well? If the skill up there is used the way it's written, it's a surefire shortcut to instakills against anything wearing lots of armor. Also, imagining twenty attacks per round makes me tickle. I want to see someone draw that.

2008-08-11 [Blood Raven]: Sb actually bended the rule in favour of his own character. I don't support his ruling, and would simply have stuck to the rule - if it deals damage, it's a hit. If it doesn't, it a fail. That includes succesful blocks as a fail. Remember blocking isn't just standing still and letting your armor do the work. Weapons have def scores as well, so it includes parrying, throwing your opponent off-balance, and even wearing armor or shields requires an amount of active use to function properly.

That's just the thing: the skill description up there doesn't say that a "hit" has to deal damage. Successful blocking is still hitting, and the game makes no difference between a weapon block and a body armor block.

The skill would be well within balance boundaries if the description were changed to something like "Once a day for every 4 levels, if you damage an opponent with a melee attack, you can attack him again until the enemy successfully dodges or blocks. Only usable when fighting unarmed. Cannot use this skill while wearing heavy armor."

Who's got editing rights? :p

2008-08-11 [Blood Raven]: I can edit it, but I usually stay away from editing the skills page until there's a obvious green light from Dur

2008-08-11 [Duredhel]: Hit means damage, its something all trainee GMs know, including you Sb >_>

2008-08-13 [Gastogh]: From Party 1: "With a smirk, Nasheem rushed towards Hiro-matsu, he poised his katana in a position to stab and proceded to use his finesse, flurry of blows and weapon mastery skills to attack Hiro a total of 7 times!"
How the hell, exactly, does that work?

Flurry of blows, being a skill, should take one action to use, leaving no way to use a conventional attack (two actions), much less Weapon Mastery. The seven attacks per turn would be possible with 2d4 attacks (two Flurries), but where does Weapon Mastery enter into this?

I'd also like to know if one use of Finesse only applies to one attack (or possibly two, with WMastery) or all attacks made that round. No way to tell from the skill description up there.
