>From the keyboard of Greg:

> Q: Can Gloranthan characters increase their mundane skills to the point
> where they are essentially supernatural, just like feats/affinities?
> A: Yes.
> Q: So why would anyone ever bother with feats and affinities instead of
> just increasing your skills?
> A: Because the difficulties are different. To leap a tall tree with a
> tree-leaping feat, you face the magic resistance difficulty of 14. To
> a tall tree with your mundane leap ability, you face a difficulty of 10w3.
> It takes a long time for the character who has simply been developing his
> ordinary Leap ability to do what a greenhorn can with his Tree Leaper
