The SKIN verb is used to extract various valuable and sometimes useful items from creatures throughout Elanthia. Successfully extracting a skin and the value of the skin is determined by a character's training in First Aid and Survival, the weapon used, whether or not the character is kneeling, the character's dexterity, and how difficult the creature is to skin. Dagger-based weapons are the preferred skinning tool for most jobs (and yield the same bonus regardless of noun), however some creatures require blunt weapons to skin instead. When blunt weaponry is called for, mace and war hammer yield the best bonus, with military pick and war mattock close behind.
