Assigning skill bonuses

You start with the basic skill score for your character and get six +1 bonuses to assign to your skills. Each bonus applied to a skill will increase it's value by one. You can assign up to three +1's to a skill. Any skills that don't receive a +1 bonus, recieve a -2 bonus(?). If your magic bonus is +1 or higher, you can learn spells. The score for each bonus is equal to skill+bonuses+special(armour, weapons, etc.)
