Generally Ankur has made it known that he is open to discussion and modifications to help make your character (and the world) our own.
As a swift action you may gain a bonus to a d20 roll by using a skill. This use must be explained and be plausible. The base DC is 15 which grants a +1 bonus to your next d20 roll. For each ten points above 15 you gain another +1 bonus (i.e. DC25 grants +2, DC35 grants +3, etc.). Each skill may only be used once per gaming session.
