Skills

New skills and information about existing skills.

Vehicle Based Skills

Vehicles and fuel are still around, but unless you are playing a high-tech game there is very little chance that PCs will use these abilities.

Boating (AGI)

Boats without holes are rare, water is rarer, and fuel is almost non-existent.

Driving (AGI)

Land based vehicles aren’t as rare as boats, but good luck finding fuel…

Piloting (AGI)

Maybe one day you dream of piloting Bear Force One and taking the President of the NCR from stop to stop. Sure, and while you’re at it why don’t you fly me to the moon.

Fighting (AGI)

Fighting is used for both Fist Weapons and Melee Weapons.

The following Knowledge Skills are added to the basic Skill list.

Knowledge (Chems) (SMA)

Knowledge (Explosives) (SMA)

You know how to build, detonate and disarm explosives. If a character has the Jack of all Trades Edge they can roll this unskilled without the -2 penalty.

Knowledge (Science) (SMA)

The Knowledge (Science) skill is used program and reprogram robots. It is also used to hack into password protected computers. Finding anything in that computer is a different matter and uses the Investigation skill. If a character has the Jack of all Trades Edge they can roll this unskilled without the -2 penalty.

See Living off the Land for more information. The Survival skill otherwise works as described in Savage Worlds Deluxe.
