When done correctly, gossip can lead one to information of infinite variety; done incorrectly, it leads to disaster and friendlessness. The Skill of Gossip will, when advanced sufficiently, give one access to information and means of obtaining new information - as well as the leverage to help or hurt others. The choice is, as always, in one's own hands.

Bluff[]

Bluff is to Acting as Lying is to Deceit; those who understand this dynamic are often the ones who understand the pure power of human manipulation, while those who do not are often the manipulated. Bluff is the Skill of out-and-out falsehood, of creating something and pretending it is true or denying something exists even as the evidence weighs heavily against them. Those who learn to bluff well can extract themselves from tough situations, while those who cannot bluff are often stuck dealing with the consequences of their actions.

Dating[]

As any scorned man or woman can tell you, there is more to the Skill of Dating than simply approaching a person and expressing interest. Some cultures have eleborate courtship rituals that must be observed, while others have 'simpler' tactics of capture and wed. In today's modern times and modern academies, the rituals of Dating must be observed. It's a few years off - but once the school allows you to date, there are elaborate dances that must be performed, letters that must be written, friends that must be spoken to...and hearts that must be occasionally broken. It's best to learn the rules early, if you hope to play the game.
