Since this has been brought up, we decided to offer an addendum to how skills and magic work. 1. Skills can only be used as many times as you have a Rank per Quest. Meaning if you have a Skill Rank of 1, you can only use it once per Quest. This makes it so you have to be careful how you use your skills. If you have an innate character skill, then there is no limitation on how often you can use it. 2. Magic still makes use of Ashudu stones. However, if you have 10 Ashudu stones, you can cast your spell as many as 10 times. This gives magic an advantage over Skills, but also makes it necessary to keep a stock of stones so you can use your magic. As we get new players, there may be variation on how we let them make their characters. Know that players who play the game more get the most reward at the end of the day, so if you play a lot, you'll be stronger and gain more skills.
