Serves as a template for all Knowledge skills.
The character is knowledgeable about a certain topic. The precise definition of a Knowledge skill is determined by the player, keeping in mind that all Knowledge skills are subject to the gamemaster’s approval. A Knowledge skill may cover broad areas of knowledge, meaning that the character knows a little bit about a lot of things, or he may have more focused knowledge, giving him more detailed knowledge within a smaller area of expertise. While the area of expertise is determined by the player, the gamemaster determines how applicable the knowledge is to the question at hand.
The Typical Knowledge Skill Table lists some different Knowledge skills that might be appropriate or useful for characters. See Knowledge Skills, p. 89, for more information on how they work.
