Skills are one of the most important parts of character development. Every character starts out with skills, no matter who they are. Skills help add flavor to a character, they inspire development for that character, and they help protect that character and maybe even earn money with the skills that character has. Developing skills will take your characters on many adventures both exciting and dangerous. If you have not taken a look at the Starting Packages in the Player Resources section, please remember to do so. Everyone should be aware that you only have 50 points to distribute however you want in any skill you want to take, except for your racial bonus skill. You can have no more than 25 points in your racial bonus skill. You can't put more than 25 points into a specific skill at the start, and you can't put less than 5 points in a skill at the start.
