adding stress to the game. 5 stress = 1 insanity point, stress is healed at a rate of 1 per
hour while in relaxing enviroment/situations.Stress can also be healed by having another
player or Npc comfort you!" d#
stress can be awarded for situations that $% chec&s are needed. it is also awarded for
any action player views as important fails by '() or more. in some situations stress can

tho you had the courage to hold, the situation demands you still ta&e stress. !" d#

for example, a human cut throat can use his dagger to parry an attac&ers sword or axe
but can6t use a dagger or other small weapon li&e &nuc&le duster to parry a greatweapon
or lace, the same cut throat can parry a greatsword with his shortsword but would be
unable to parry a tree trun& wielded by a troll.

S&ills2 S&ills can be gained in ways outside of the norm, %*6s spending long hours
dueling each other to improve there martial prowess, or sitting down and studying
together, players can also teach them selves about various things via boo&s. learning in
this fashion ta&es far longer than normal some subCects can be learnt in Cust a few
wee&s while others can ta&e years of hard wor&.
S&ill teaching2 for one player to teach another in a s&ill or decipline they must have ta&en
the s&ill and have an advancement in that s&ill, for example $ilber wants to teach
shampoo how to improve his Dealing s&ill, so they ma&e time every day for a couple of
hours of practiceroleplay re5uired#, $ilber is a very experienced medic and has his s&ill
at max. after each wee& of training $ilber will roll a fellowship chec&, then if wilber
passes the chec& shampoo must ta&e an int chec& becuase healing is based on int. Bf
both characters pass then shampoo is one step closer to learning the s&ill.
S&ills will be assigned a number depending on the difficulty of the s&ill and aptitude of
the players teaching and learning it. this number represents the amount of stages
needing to be passed before the s&ill is learnt. basic s&ills at ran& 1 ta&e three stages. at
ran& 3 six stages when being taught by an already experienced player.
advanced s&ills often ta&e twice as long at least. no s&ill can be trained to master level in
this way. and only 1 subCect can be learnt at a time and some subCects even ta&e
addiitional experiance, players can use this method to learn s&ills outside of thos listed
on there chareer sheets. so if a thug wants to learn charm animal thats possible, but he
would need to get a player who is already experienced with the s&ill, and becuase its
outside of his career he would payer higher than normal exp for it!" d#.
