Class Foci

Every class except Barbarian, Scout, Thief, and Warrior receives a class focus skill.

Shadowmastery

Shadowmastery is a focus skill granted to Assassins. It determines eligibility and hit rating for Assassin Powers, and serves as a weapon mastery skill for the Shadow Dagger and Bone Staff.

The dark arts of the Assassins combine craft at stealth and anatomy with long-forbidden sorceries and forgotten Elvish Necromancy. True Shadowmasters can draw fourth the cold Darkness of the Outer Void to slay their victims.

Bardsong

Bardsong is a focus skill granted to Bards. It determines eligibility and hit rating for Bard Powers, and serves as a weapon mastery skill for the Long Staff.

Channeling

Chaneling is a focus skill granted to Channelers. It determines eligibility and hit rating for Channeler Powers, and serves as a weapon mastery skill for the Flame Blade and Stone Mace.

All things arise from the interaction of the Five Primal Elements, bound by the All-Father wove into a pattern. Those with the gift of Channeling use faith or philosophy to manipulate the threads of the Tapestry.

Armor Foci

The ability to wear certain kinds of armor will depend on a character's skill in that armor's focus skill. Beyond that, increasing an armor skill plays the largest single role in a character's defense score. Wearing cloth armor requires no focus skill.
