Extra Hit "Either toughen up or die. The Wilds allow no other choice." The character gains 1 hit. This skill can  be stacked with extra hit from the Enforcer Pathway or Mutation section.
Use Close Combat Weapon over 18" in Length "A sword never jams, never has to be reloaded, is always ready." The character can use any LARP safe (excluding stab safe) weaponry to do one point of damage. This includes weapons with special calls, such as Rend.
Use Spear Her opponents started off grinning at the termerity of a slight, young girl attacking them, and then rapidly passed through various stages of puzzlement, doubt, concern, and abject gibbering terror as they apparently became the centre of a flashing, tightening circle of steel. The character may use any stab safe LARP weapon to do one point of damage.
Resources "My father told me that when you're working, don't stop to count your money." The character recieves an additional 100 Credits and one random resource at the start of play. The amount of Credits will fluxuate after the characters first event, depending on the state of the in game economy. This skill can be taken multiple times.
Use Single Shot Firearm "I keep this on me... for close encounters..." The character can use any firearm that requires the user to load each shot individually.
Use Shield "Sometimes they save your life, sometimes you might as well paint a target on the front."

The character may use a LARP safe shield in combat. Shields that are shot with a firearm may be used in one of two ways;

The bullet that hits the shield passes through and hits the player. The player takes damage as normal.


The shield absorbs all damage from the bullet but is broken in the process, thus unusable until repaired.

The player whose shield is hit decided which of these options to use at the moment of damage, and should respond appropriately. Note that this only applies to damage taken from firearms; bows, melee weapons, etc. do not damage shields without using special calls.

Chemist "For all your drug needs!"

The character may identify and combine chemical substances.
