How do skills work.
You roll a D20 and add the stat the skill is based on, for example if your rolling a climb check you can use your strength bonus. so if i strength 18, I add 18 Then you add the skill point bonus from your climb skill. The stat you use is dependent upon the circumstances, but the skill bonus works reagardless of circumstances. Class skills automatically make you have a 1 in every point. Skills are measured on a 1-20, and are designed more a specializations. once you start getting from +10 in skill points it costs 1 more, (which for a non class skills means your spending 3:1). For 15-20 its +2, so 3/1 for class skills and 4/1 for non class skills. Hint, don’t fucking do cross class skills.
Social classes (all classes at 1st level have X+y bonus X 4
Hybrid/rogue 6+ bonus (hybrid social)
Casters 2+bonus (hint)
