How Knowledge Skills Work

Like the Craft and Profession skills, Knowledge actually encompasses a number of unrelated skills. Knowledge represents a study of some body of lore, possibly an academic or even scientific discipline.

Blood & Iron has an extensive selection of specific knowledge skills, but it is impractical to attempt to cover all possible areas of study. The players or the Games Master should feel free to create any knowledge skills that they feel are appropriate for their game if they are not covered by the existing skills.

Answering a question within your field of study has a DC of 10 (for really easy questions), 15 (for basic questions), or 20 to 30 (for really tough questions).

An untrained Knowledge check is simply an Intelligence check. Without actual training, you know only common knowledge (DC 10 or lower).
