Default New Skills

I am not ignoring the call for new skills, but I really cannot think of many things that seem worth it.


Writing (11?) - prereq Literacy - ability to write in a clear and concise manner. Useful for researchers, military officers (to write orders), and who else? Combined with Bard, would let you write entertaining fiction.

Poetry - prereq either Bard or Literacy - ability to write a poem that is not merely a collection of rhymes, engaging emotion in a way that prose cannot. (A bard who lacks this talent can still compose amusing doggerel, of course, but a poet bard will write GOOD songs.) An illiterate poet/bard is quite possible - a Skald who has memorized thousands of lines of sagas.

Open suggestion time. Saying Howitzer! is okay if you have one.
