This was the part I was missing. I thought each side bid whatever they wanted--not that youhad to match the bidder's bid.

So what happens when Kost the Tracker bids 50 on his Hide Tracks and Bigmouth the Rubble Runner Broo only has 20 on his Sniff skill? Bigmouth can only bid 20, right?

This doesn't seem to be the way it is in Kallai's character. Close combat is a broad reaching number that specific skills are based on, but those specific skills are greater than the Close Combat skill. To do otherwise would suggest that everyone could be a general weaponmaster.
