chooseSkill {skill name} ["real"]


The chooseSkill command reads the skill value for the specified skill and places the value into the #skill system variable. The current lock status is placed in the #skillLock system variable and the current skill cap is placed in the #skillCap system variable.

The skill name is the first four characters of the actual skill name, with the exception of animal lore (ANIL) and stealth (STLT). See the list below for more info.
