      The joke was that Craft: Genesis can be a euphemism for procreation, not..Whatever you're thinking here.

      Movin' on!

      Resistance: Sleep deprivation

      Lore: Laws of Nexus (for actually knowing them)

      Bureaucracy: Laws of Nexus (for navigating and exploiting them)

      Presence: Laws of Nexus (for realizing that apart from the big five, you can convince anyone that anything is illegal in Nexus with enough confidence.)

            It's surprising how often this came up in 2nd Ed with Lunar-mounts.

                    Tragically, sharks can get cancer, and as we continue to pollute the ocean, the rates of it are increasing. “Doctor” I. William Lane is a hack.

                        Edit: Come to think of it, "Against the realm" doesn't really make sense for any ability. For most stuff it's simply too broad. For everything else it just doesn't fit.

                          Lore (Realm politics and culture)?

                              It makes sense for War.
                              War (Opposing Realm military doctrine) or (Vs Realm Legions). However you think is the best way to write that.
                              Your more experienced fighting Realm legions than, say, horse archers, or tigermen, so you're better at countering their tactics.
