I'm working on a sort of simple "board game" for a programming assignment... but mostly it's for my own interest. I want to kind of crowd source some data from some of you gamer goons and I guess non-gamer goons.

What I'm doing is building a database of "skills" that could appear in an RPG challenge. In this case, the skills I mean are like cooking, alchemy, brawling, climbing. The kind of skills I don't mean are like double katana blitzkrieg slash or magic missile.

Here are some to get us started!

  • Acrobatics
  • Acting
  • Alchemy
  • Animal Husbandry
  • Beekeeping
  • Begging
  • Birdkeeping
  • Blacksmithing
  • Botany
  • Brawling
  • Brewing
  • Burglary
  • Calligraphy
  • Cartography
  • Carving
  • Climbing
  • Composition
  • Construction
  • Cooking
  • Copying
  • Dance
  • Digging / Tunneling
  • Disguise
  • Drawing
  • Fishing
  • Fletching/Bowing
  • Forgery
  • Fortune Telling
  • Hunting
  • Impersonation
  • Interrogation
  • Intimidation
  • Investigation
  • Jewelcrafting
  • Juggling
  • Larceny
  • Leatherworking
  • Locksmithing
  • Meditation
  • Mining
  • Painting
  • Performance
  • Play Musical Instrument
  • Pottery
  • Rhetoric
  • Riding
  • Running
  • Sailing
  • Salvage
  • Scavenge
  • Scouting
  • Sculpting
  • Seduction
  • Sewing
  • Shipbuilding
  • Singing
  • Spelunking
  • Stealth
  • Storytelling
  • Subterfuge
  • Survival
  • Swimming
  • Tactics
  • Teaching
  • Tracking
  • Trapping
  • Unarmed Combat
  • Weaponsmithing
  • Weaving
  • Writing

Real answers are Archeology and some kind of field guide skill where you get better at identifying things you find and using them more efficiently. Sorry OP I thought I was in GBS.

If that's what you want you should go play call of duty or mario or something.

RPGs aren't about fighting, they're about seducing NPCs and spending two hours arguing over how to solve a puzzle the dm got from an issue of highlights for children. And maybe working through some gender stuff.

What if my character is a fighter who has a healthy relationship with violence?
