Shocking, these kids and their sniggering insinuations!

Re "Skill" vrs "Ability" - we chose to use the more general "Ability" because not everything your character can do is a real skill - Wealth, Relationships and Personality abilities let you do stuff, but aren't really "skills" in the more formal sense of the word. Now, we could have used multiple names for "useful things you can do" - Skills, Passions, etc, but we decided to go with the generic "Ability" instead.
