  Skill Proficiency

Skills are not innate things. They must be learned and practiced over time. Unless somehow conferred, skills do not develop over night, and even telepathically implanted skills require practice to maintain. There are only 24 hours in the day, and not all of those can be spent constantly learning and honing skills. Be realistic, how many disparate skills does one person really have?

When writing up the actual skill, do your best to describe the skill as well as you can. Try to portray the level of ability your character has with that particular skill. If possible compare them to another character, or some other example. Do not simply say they can do such and such and are better than so and so. That doesn't provide nearly enough information.
