The art of negotiation, or at least getting a good deal. Anyone can (and probably should) try to haggle when buying armor, weapons, and others goods, but the Haggler skill helps you excel at it and gets you better pricing, more consistently than your average adventurer. This skill can also be handy when bartering for information, a plus when your not a big intimidating brute.
Rank1 – Gain +2 Advantage on Charm tests made when haggling or negotiating for better deals when buying, selling or bartering for goods and services. Typically no more than 10% better deals without losing advantage.
Rank2 – Increase to +4 Advantage. Typically no more than 15% better deals without losing advantage. Can also talk people into giving you information without them even knowing they have betrayed the information.
Rank3 – Increase to +6 Advantage. Typically no more than 25% better deals without losing advantage.
Extra – Going after really aggressive discounts can cause adverse consequences even if they are technical successful.

Max Rank 3 on any one ability.
Those that are particularly adept at riding can utilize their mount to maximum effect, performing attacks and maneuvers from horse back (or whatever other back they are riding on) that amaze and confound opponents in combat. However this is a skill that relies heavily on the rider’s agility and as such a minimum Agility of 13 is required to take this skill. The Trick Rider skill works in tandem with the Riding Skill, you cannot use any bonus or ability from Tricker Rider if you are not capable of riding your mount into combat.
Note: Centaurs cannot take Trick Rider
