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.
