Portrait, fully bookmarked.
An alternate method of selecting skills for your Modern d20 character.
Skill groups are a way of representing the interrelated nature of certain skills. The fact is, realistically, most characters who can move silently
should also know how to hide, and people who can ride an animal are usually good at handling animals
as well. There are exceptions, of courseit seems logical that characters with Listen would also have ranks of Spot, but a blind character would have
no Spot ranks despite a high Listenbut just as the rules allow this specificity, there ought to be
a means of representing the fact that training
in some skills gives you a level of competence
in others or that many people train in multiple related skills at once.
D20 POSTMODERN: Skill Groups presents an alternate system of skill selection that gives your character access to skill groups derived from his or her classes, occupation, and advanced classes.
Additionally, this pdf presents a system for Skill Challenges. Skill challenges reflect an experts ability to perform routine tasks with superior grace and efficiency. They also allow you to attempt heroic deeds otherwise unavailable to you by making already difficult skill checks even harder. With a bit of luck, skill, and good planning, you can achieve the impossible.
