Graveblight Skeletons says that the Skelleton's can be commanded to perform tasks. As d6 Minions, without the Bestial Intelect Flaw, it seams they they are Below Adverage in all things. Does this limit what tasks that they can be used to perform?

For example, can a Skellie be commanded to provide assistance when crafting, and proivde such assistance at a d6 level of skill? Also, I note that skellies can use weapons. Does they mean that they can be used by say an Altherian worshiper of Neroth, to load and fire flintlocks? (With assosicated penalties for cost per shots, lack of training ect...). (I'm asking from both a game mechanics, and Onaran Law perspective.) Finally can a Nerothian swap weapon trainging talents on his skellies to match the equipement that they can use?

If you lived in Cancer I I don't see what would shocking about having a smithy full of undead doing menial labor and assisting the master smith (at the d6 level). I also assume an Altherian could use a skeleton as a powder monkey or even to pull the trigger of a flintlock.

But Altheria isn't Canceri. Using the remains of the dead that way is ... as I understand it .... blasphemous in the eyes of the typical followers of the Mother Church and the Milandesian Orthodox Church. Even if the Temple of Neroth says its okay. I vaguely remember reading somewhere that they (temple of N.) only animate the remains of their followers and keep them out of sight in Coryan.

Finally no, I don't believe you can alter skills or weapon training on your minions.

EG is correct that the spell makes no allowance for swapping out training. But, that sounds like a great Talent idea.

As far as the legal and societal niceties are concerned, I would leave that to Henry to answer.
