What skills would the complex use of rope fall under? I'm thinking of building a rope bridge, or lashing some sticks together for a signal tower. Off hand, I see it as a combination of wilderness lore, knowledge engineering, seamanship and perhaps battle, depending on the application. I ask because looking a the Boy Scout website it looks like a useful skill to have for an adventurer. I just don't see that it easily fits into the arcanis skill set.

Thoughts???

As a tool, apply the skill closest to the end purpose.

Rope bridges and lashing towers together probably falls under Knowledge: Engineering. Fancy knot tying could be either wilderness lore or seamanship. Using lines to adjust sails is obviously seamanship. Lashing a raft together is probable seamanship and/or knowledge engineering. Rope traps could be wilderness lore for a simple rabbit snare or knowledge engineering for a Rube Goldberg machine.

My 2 coppers

Ok. That covers it. Thanks guys. I wanted to make certain that Acturis had the skills that I thought I had given him.

My 2 coppers


Rope bridges, palisades, towers, tents, etc - battle (for centurions, etc.) or knowledge engineering
Ships, rafts - seamanship or knowledge engineering
Camping, tents, traps, snares - wilderness lore or larceny
Other - knowledge religion (larissa) :)

Ok so with battle, engineering, and wilderness lore I should be able to do anything I'm thinking of. As for the "Other" options, well, those are best left to the Sensates. :D
