Skill Claims

1. Each character can have two skills. These are optional.

The skills available are: FIGHTING, HUNTING, HEALING, NAVIGATION, and INTELLECT.

2. A large feature of skills is the prestige of being more skilled in a particular field. Certain higher-ranked members of a particular skill might be seen as more valuable than a lower-ranked member.

3. Skills can be leveled up by earning skill points. As you earn skill points, you will also move up in ranking!
For example, you might see this on someone's profile: Beginner Fighter (5), meaning they are of the beginner ranking and have 5 skill points. You also might see: Expert Fighter (211) meaning they are in the expert ranking, and have 211 skill points.

4. Skills can be changed at any time by posting a request in maintenance but all points gained in that skill will be lost, and cannot be re-claimed if you choose to return to that skill.

5. Make sure you choose a skill that fits your character, as they will have to do things related to their skill to level them up. If you want Bob to be skilled in fighting, you may have to participate in a large amount of fight training and spars to get this skill fully leveled. This will probably not be enjoyable if the character doesn't like to fight.

6.  Once a skill is fully leveled, you will be able to choose a Specialty from that particular skill, which will provide in-game perks.

7. All threads being claimed for skill points must have 3+ rounds, with a post by each character in each round, for all those involved - unless otherwise specified. (i.e. Prescribing herbs for a patient requires 3 posts from both the one doing the prescribing, as well as the patient.) As for things such as land exploration, studying the stars, etc., a significant portion of these posts ought to be devoted to that specific skill.

For example, If someone explores land X, but never makes note of their surroundings, are they really exploring? If someone grabs a flower off the ground, but makes no note of what it is used for, or how to collect it properly, are they really studying healing? The thread must place a very large emphasis on the particular skill being done.

8. Each 3-round skill claim can be used for up to two separate skill claims, but they must be two different tasks, and a significant portion of each post must be devoted to each claim! You cannot simply add more predators in to claim that multiple times, but you can, for example, claim "Meeting someone new" and "Crafting an item related to fighting" in the same 3-round thread, if applicable.

SKILL RANKS
Beginner: 0 - 14 points
Novice: 15 - 29 points
Intermediate: 30 - 59 points
Advanced: 60 - 119 points
Expert: 120 - 239 points
Master: 240+ points


Please fill out the code at the bottom of this form as well, but keep the Code tags intact (remove the *) with the amount you're claiming, the "for what" as well as the name of who you're meeting, healing or fighting and the link where Link Here is.
