Skills

The maximum level for a skill is 50, which is considered "mastery" of a skill (though your actual competence is still dependent on your stats). A character's native language begins with a skill level of 100 (unless they take the Orphan trait), making it borderline impossible for them not to be fluent in it. The first ten levels in a skill cost one skill point each, then two for the next ten levels, and so on.

Armorsmithing
(top)

Brewing
(top)

Stat: Intelligence

A crafting skill which can turn the food collected by scroungers into drinks that are more thirst-quenching than water.

Some of them even come with beneficial effects.

Climbing
(top)

Stat: Dexterity

A movement skill used to successfully climb obstacles, primarily trees. All characters can climb, but taking levels in Climbing will make it more likely they are successful, and thereby less likely to fall and hurt themselves. Climbing into the treetops can be done by interacting with a tree, and characters can thereafter move freely across them with the normal movement keys.

Cooking
(top)

Stat: Craft

A crafting skill which can turn the food collected by scroungers into proper meals that are more filling than their ingredients alone. If cooked food is used to top off a character's hunger meter, it can keep them sated for a considerable amount of time afterwards, eliminating the concern of hunger for a while.

A combat skill which knocks an opponent's weapon to the floor, leaving them vulnerable and giving you the opportunity to snatch it.

Disguise

A crafting skill used to make useful, everyday objects, as well as refine raw materials into more processed ones that crafters have use for.

Fossorial Charge
(top)

Stat: Strength

The racial combat skill of Badgers. When used, the character will run ahead in a straight line, losing control of their character until they hit something or stop. If they hit a critter, that critter may be damaged and knocked down. If the badger hits something solid that isn't a person, they will be knocked down instead.

Gardening
(top)

Stat: Intelligence

A crafting skill that allows food and herbs to be turned into seeds, which can then be planted by the character. After a certain amount of time, the planted seeds will blossom and can be harvested, allowing a measure of self-sufficiency.

Hammers
(top)

Stat: Strength

A weapon skill that makes it easier to hit opponents with hammers.

Herbalism
(top)

Stat: Luck and Intelligence

A crafting skill used to scrounge herbs from the world. Unlike normal scrounging, critters need to know precisely what they are looking for to find useful herbs, so they must be trained in Herbalism to recognize them.

Hiding
(top)

Stat: Craft

An active skill that hides the character from the sight of other players. Characters will move invisibly to everyone who does not spot them through Detection, and will not block other characters from moving through them, but other characters will still block their way. Hiding in plain sight is not a good idea; the skill is best used to sneak by other critters, not stand right under their nose.

Impersonation
(top)

Stat: Craft

An active skill that changes the character's name as displayed to other players, though characters with high Detection (or sufficiently lucky with untrained Perception) may be able to see through it.

Iron Fur

(top)

Mellic
(top)

Stat: Intelligence

The native language of Badgers.

Mephis
(top)

Stat: Intelligence

The native language of Skunks.

Mining
(top)

Stat: Luck and Craft

A crafting skill used to scrounge ores from rocks in the world. Despite what the name implies, and the skill's action bar icon, mining does not involve any tools. Critters do not mine the rocks in the world; they search the area around the rocks and find small chunks of them loose enough to pry free, much like ordinary scrounging, but critters need to know exactly what they are looking for in order to find anything useful. Different types of ore are found in different types of rock, and some are much harder to mine than others.

Parrying
(top)

Sciurric
(top)

Stat: Intelligence

The native language of Squirrels.

Scrounging
(top)

Stat: Luck

A crafting skill used to gather resources, and one of the most important skills in the game. Every character is able to scrounge, but taking levels in Scrounging will make them better at it. Scrounging is also influenced by one's surroundings.

Shield Use
(top)

Stat: Prowess

A passive skill which gives the character a chance to block an attack that would otherwise hit if a shield is being held. Shields are considered armor, though their percentage chance to block damage is based on the Shield Use skill rather than a static percentage. If the damage of an attack exceeds the shield's DR, it will crush through the block and deal the remainder.

Skullduggery
(top)

Stat: Craft

A crafting skill that allows a character to add herbs to food and drink while they are being made, as well as adding pestled herbs to food and drink that's already been cooked, bestowing them with negative effects.

Sprinting
(top)

Stat: Dexterity

A movement skill that increases movement speed while running. At intervals while running, the character has a chance to trigger a "burst of speed" and break into a sprint.

Tail Slap
(top)

Stat: Strength

A combat skill performed by raising the tail and bringing it around to smack the opponent hard across the torso or head. It is usable by all races except for Badgers, Hedgehogs, and Rabbits.

Tail Sweep
(top)

Stat: Prowess

A combat skill performed with a swift, firm ankle-level sweep of the tail. It is usable by all races except for Badgers, Hedgehogs, and Rabbits. Of the remainder, only Weasels, Mice, Otters, and Rats can use it without a penalty. If used successfully, the target will be knocked down for some time.

Tailoring
(top)

Stat: Craft

A crafting skill which turns tanglecloth, made from tangle blossoms, into various types of clothing. This includes backpacks which can raise a character's carrying capacity. Clothing is necessary to avoid being slowed down by cold weather.

Tenacity
(top)

Stat: Fortitude

A combat skill which, if the character would take damage reducing their Health to zero, instead reduces it to one. The remaining damage is subtracted from the character's Stamina instead. If they don't have enough stamina to absorb the blow, the skill does not work.

Thumping
(top)

Stat: Perception

A code language that is performed by tapping one's paws or tail against the ground. Only those with levels in the Thumping skill will be aware that anything is being said at all. This is somewhat similar to sign language, including in that it can be spoken by mute characters, but it's also a secret language.

Viciousness
(top)

Stat: Craft

A combat skill focused on inflicting lasting wounds to one's opponent that impair their ability to fight. On a hit, if a critter does not already have an injury afflicting them, there is a chance to inflict one. An injury can restrict a character's vision, slow them down, or apply a penalty to their skills. The injuries can last from a few minutes to several hours of play.

Vulpic
(top)

Stat: Intelligence

The native language of Foxes.

Weaponsmithing
(top)

Stat: Strength
Prerequisite: Blacksmithing 10

A crafting skill that can be used to make powerful weapons from various types of metal. The crafter's skill level, as well as the quality of their hammer and anvil, heavily influence the quality of the crafted equipment.

An active skill that allows the user to heal characters and cure them of negative afflictions.

Wood Armory
(top)

Stat: Craft

Woodworking
(top)

Writing
(top)

Stat: Intelligence

A crafting skill which can be used to write. All critters have enough basic literacy to read their known languages unless they take the Illiterate trait, but with the Writing skill they can write books, notes, signs, et cetera in any language they know.
