Archives » splitting Diplomacy and Trading skill
Fannar Agnarson

Is there a thread discussing splitting Diplomacy and Trading into separate skills?

Those 2 are not the same, not even close enough to be in the same bucket.

Diplomacy could have a moderately positive effect on Management. Diplomacy skill could also have a positive influence on trading and so could a (non modified) management skill. (0=no influence) with formulae expressing how much trading is enhanced by either.


Diplomacy and Trading have much more in common than you suggest.

Appraising situations, assets, and facts, evaluating people, negotiating, etc... All the things that make one the best trader also make one the best diplomat.



They were actually merged with the skill revamp that happened a few years back.

They wouldn't be split just because the vague concepts can be interpreted differently. The skills are designed as needed for gameplay, and there isn't any point in splitting them again without the need for two separate skills. Technically it could be named to either Diplomacy or Trading, and that would serve the same purpose, but no feature plans require a second skill that can't be covered by this one.
