Re: Skills Opinions!

Well, there has to be a balance, of course, but as i stated in the lower part of my post, a bloated list of skills could be replaced by a more clever approach to combining a slimmer skillset with different attributes instead of having each skill bound to one attribute only. Also, talents aren't tha...

Re: Polyhedral dice,

http://www.chessex.com/Dice/Custom_Dice_Home.htm Cool, not sure that would be cheaper than the official dice, though - the pricing is a bit unclear.  I assume that $1 price is per side, per dice?  So ordering 20 yellow dice with the custom 1 and 6 would cost $40, plus shipping? Also probably not an...

Re: Skills Opinions!

Twelve, Sixteen - either is good and around my sweetspot :) For "general skills" that's enough, but if you want to define those loose areas, say be a sword master, you can't without also being a master of every other weapon, You know you could go the other way, and just have one single skill called...

Re: Skills Opinions!

I had a thought the other day about this thing with people needing more than twelve skills. Since Fria Ligan has a history of using talents as a way of morphing skills in different ways, why not keep that going and keep the skillcount low? For example Command: in it's normal form it's just about or...

Re: Skills Opinions!

To be earnest: Insight has not such a broad meaning as Wisdom. And all the systems have used Wisdom as an attribute and I think that is a correct way of handling it. The MY0 original is even more narrow - Genomskåda (to "see through" as in "I can see through your empty lies") in Swedish or Sense Em...

Re: Skills Opinions!

You could use the term Wisdom instead of insight  We were discussing Insight being under Charisma, how does using Wisdom address that issue? Wisdom under Charisma feels even more out of place than Insight under Charisma. Because Insight has nothing to do with Charisma, it's related to Wisdom, ask y...

Re: Skills Opinions!

Awareness is to spot something physical, e.g. someone sneaking up to you, blood on the floor, a secret door. Insight is to gauge if someone is lying to you, hiding something from you, to get a feeling from a scene. You could use the term Wisdom instead of insight  No, Wisdom is not a skill it’s an ...
