Survival Skills

Realm of Strife™ > Secondary Skills > Survival Skills

Survival skills are a school of secondary skills that focus on the character’s ability to navigate and thrive in the wilderness, react to danger, handle emergencies, and adapt to challenging environments. They provide characters with tools and abilities to overcome the challenges faced when venturing beyond the safety of civilization and adapt to unforeseen circumstances. These skills may enhance a character’s ability to avoid dangerous encounters, find sustenance, treat injuries, or gain an advantage in stealthy or tactical situations. They reflect a character’s resourcefulness, instincts, and adaptability in the face of adversity.

Many survival skills also allow characters to passively sustain a self-sufficient lifestyle during down time by living off the land.
