Skills - Physical, Elemental & Healing

What They Are:

Skills are things that your wolf has learned that they are able to use to either aid their daily life, or protect themselves from enemies. They are used in a multitude of ways and all wolves start out learning a skill at what is called a "beginner" level, and must gain XP to level that skill up to a higher ability. Each character is able to learn six skills: two of which can be raised to a champion level, two of which can be raised to a master level and two of which may be raised to an adept level. The types of skills a character learns is dependent upon their Species.

On this game there are three different types:
~ Physical Skills: These are skills that essentially describe an enhanced physical ability of your wolf to do something, such as lift objects twice to three times larger than themselves, run twice as fast or even have the ability to react more quickly to danger than another. These skills are not brought upon by any sort of magical means, wolves with these skills are just blessed to be able to perform more heightened physical feats than others.

~ Elemental Skills:  The skills in this category are best described as magic or sorcery, to some, but in this game they are more accurately called elemental affinities. Each of these skills allows your wolf to be able to work with a particular "element" of the world, such as the ability to grow plants from the earth, spew fire or even envelop an entire area in shadows. If you want your wolf to be known as some sort of a grand wizard, these are the skills you will want to invest in.

~ Healing Skills: Healing on this game does not have to do with magic, it has to do with the proper use of plants. This skill is akin to knowing a herbalism talent, knowing which plants to use to cause the greatest aid to another. This category also encompasses the opposing skill, learning the use of plants to create poisons. 


Each main skill has a sub-skill. Sub-skills are special, hard-to-master, skills that can only be learned after the parent skill is raised to the apprentice (second) level. Sub-skills can never be chosen as a starter skill. If you/your character no longer wishes to practice the parent skill, they may replace it with a sub-skill (thus allowing warriors to learn magical sub-skills) or another beginner level main skill. In either case, unlocking a new skill costs 500 XP.

Improving Skills:

You level up your skills using XP that you gain for role-playing. See the XP wiki page for more information. For skill use, keep in mind that you must specify that you are using a skill when it is claimed to be used in your post(s). 

With physical skills, these are something that needs to be specified as being used, versus a wolf simply performing an action on it's own initiative. Stating only that "She raced swiftly through the forest." is something any wolf may do, with or without a speed skill. However, stating that "She used her newfound affinity for speed to move her paws swifter over the grass than ever before, flashing by even the doe that bounded through the trees." is more in line with using a skill in a post. 

With elemental skills, you need to be using this skill in a manner that specifies that you are aware you are making this happen. It will not be counted if you are doing something without full knowledge of it. Stating "Flames flared up in a semi-circle in the grass around him, without him knowing it happened as he got angry." is not an acceptable way to describe using the fire skill. However, "As he got angry, he began to manifest a flame barrier about himself in preparation for a fight." is more what is meant. 

With the healing skill, simply identifying plants is not enough, although doing so may be a great way to train another healer, it is not using the healing skill as specified. Use of the healing skill requires specifically stating that you are using these plants to treat a wound or ease a wolf's suffering (or cause suffering with a poison skill) in some manner.

Leveling up your skill requires that you have an amount of experience points that is equal to raising your skill to the next level.  You may level up your skills after you have the required amount of experience points, by posting in the Improvements Forum . There are instructions given in this thread that explain how to format your request so that it gets completed efficiently. 

If you wish to acquire a completely new main skill or acquire a sub-skill after you have leveled the main skill, it costs 500 experience points.

Skill Levels:

The skill level that everyone starts off with when acquiring a new skill. Requires 500 experience points to level up to apprentice.

You are just starting to learn how to use the skill that you have gained, able to work with small quantities of an element or in a small duration of your physical skill at a time. It is here where you will be the weakest, the most unstable with your skill, for some skills this means barely being able to do anything permanent or noticeable.  At this time, elemental skills are non-harmful to others as you wield them. You become tired after using your skill only a few times a day. 

Requires 1000 experience points to level up to adept.

You now can use your skill much better than before, able to do twice as much as you could at a beginner level. You can now start to learn unique things that you can do with your skill, using it in ways that others might not ordinarily think of. For an elemental user, this may be things like crafting more unique things with your element, using your element in harmful or helpful ways, and for a physical skill, it may be combining it with other skills in different ways.

Requires 2000 experience points to level up to master.

This is the mid-range level of skill ability. You are considered an "average" user of your skill, and able to now teach others your skill if you wish to. It is now possible, for an elemental user, to control twice as much of a quantity of it as you could when an apprentice, and for a physical user, to perform up to twice as many feats with your skill as you could when an apprentice. 

Requires 4000 experience points to level up to champion.

You now completely understand your skill and it's limitations, though you are not yet perfect at it, you now can learn many unique ways to use your skill, as well as many ways to pair it with other skills for greater effect. A master at their skill would be very skilled at teaching their skill to others, and be highly valued for the depth of their information about the skill.

A champion knows all there is to know about their skill and is extremely powerful.

You now know everything that there is to know about your skill, and are one of the most powerful users of it. Anything that you desire can likely be done with your skill, so long as you can imagine it within the boundaries of the ability.  Champions of their skill begin to embody their skill in physical attributes as well. For example: a champion of the strength skill would have more defined muscling and larger muscles that show off their power, a champion of the earth skill may have more plant-like features that naturally grow from their body or adorn their features.
