HERO System Skills examines the subject of Skills from numerous perspectives. It addresses Skills not only in general terms — as a major game element within the HERO System as a whole — but specifically, on a Skill-by-Skill basis, with new information and rules about every Skill (and several new optional Skills). As always, all the new and expanded rules in this book are strictly optional. Note: HERO System Skills is a 6th Edition upgrade/revision of The Ultimate Skill. It's been prepared so that the pagination is identical (for example, a reference to a rule on TUS p. 314 is also on page 314 of HSS). This may mean that there are some gaps in the text or partially blank pages.
