A quick strike into an opponent's territory is often though of as a raid. While this is true, there are other forms of raiding that are equally destructive and effective, and it is these things that are brought together under the banner of the Skill of Raid. Those who learn how to raid will learn how to channel certain elements and destroy that which their opponent holds dear, all while maintaining a reasonable semblance of neutrality. A proper raid will cause little damage to one's own reputation, but an effective raid will cause damage to one's opponent regardless.

Riding

Riding is the skill you call upon when you climb on an animal's back (or its neck, its head, or even its claws, depending on the creature in question) and try to encourage it to take you where you want to go. You need it to keep your balance, and you need it to direct your steed along the paths you choose.

In an age of carriages and flying carpets, the skill has somewhat fallen out of fashion - particularly in cities like Mineta, where municipal efforts to keep the streets clean are actually quite stringent - but there really are times when "civilized" modes of transport just aren't available - or aren't desirable.
