Let’s say you want to sneak up on an orc. Do you need to roll Move Silently to avoid stepping on a twig, and then Hide to keep the beast from seeing you, or can you cover both tasks with a single Stealth roll? That’s skill granularity, and it’s what we’re talking about today. We consider the consequences of making a skill too narrow, the potential for abuse when a skill is too broad, and try to find a happy middle ground. Also we learn that each host has a different idea of what the Etiquette skill does.
