Area Knowledge represents in depth knowledge about a region or subject. Most often this is a geographical location such as Doriath, the Vales of Sirion, or the Bay of Balar; however it is sometimes appropriate to assign this skill to an academic topic such as Metallurgy or Chemistry. In all cases it represents an in depth knowledge of the subject’s workingsand characteristics, but not necessarily the capacity to use that knowledge – in other words, it is often theoretical rather than practical.
A character can have multiple Area Knowledge skills, each with a different subject and counting as an individual skill for the skill pyramid.
