    Is the barbarian career supposed to have access to the light armor skill? They have an exploit that increases the quality level of hide armor by one step. Or do you not need the appropriate skill when the items quality is enhanced artificially?

    Do all defense skill count as being skill choices for all careers?

    Poison would be a trait added onto an attack, like a bite is Piercing and Poison (which can be done as an upgrade) and the victim is only moved on the status track when hit with a Critical, therefore Vital defence never comes into the equation.

    Okay, so I an error of the word order sort. I'll correct that:

    The official way is that the GM makes the call on which defence to use.

    The way I personally do it is if more than one defence might apply (in this case MELEE or VITAL) you use the highest. Effectively the one attack roll has to beat both.
