  • Scavenge
  • Climb
  • Slight of Hand
  • Stealth
  • Deception

A specialist starts 1st level with one of these skills at 3-in-6 and two others at 2-in-6. All characters can attempt any skill at 1-in-6. Each time a Specialist gains a level they gain two points to put into these (or other) skills as they wish. Each point increases the in-6 chance by one. One point raises 2-in-6 to 3-in-6, as an example.
