A Skill is a somewhat complex task or area of knowledge that your character can learn and grow in expertise. You measure this expertise with a numerical modifier known as a Proficiency Bonus (PB) that is added to the natural skill roll check. This Proficiency Bonus allows you to increase the chance of success with attempting a skill roll.

Your character can have a skill in one of three different levels of expertise, all of which increase at different rates and offer various proficiency number when first received. Gifts represent the highest degree of expertise and therefore offer the highest PB at Level 1. The next area is Talents, which represents skills that your character has a knack for but is not necessarily gifted in. Finally Crafts represent the lowest level of expertise, which are merely hobbies or interests.

(Important Note:the highest maximum Proficiency Bonus any single skill can have is +10, regardless of skill level.)
