A fellow named Kevin R. Conk wrote to me about my site and had a couple of suggestions for variant class skills for sorcerers and wizards.
I thought the idea was interesting, and though I'm not 100% ready to buy
off on it yet, I thought I'd post it, because I do like the idea, and I think
I'll eventually endorse it.
To paraphrase Kevin:
"Sorcerers should have Use Magic Device as a class
skill. After all, with the current rules, an exceptionally skilled rogue
can use this skill to fool a holy avenger, but a sorcerer, with an innate talent for magic, can't?
"Wizards should have Decipher Script as a class skill.
They are supposed to be the booksmart ones who frequent libraries ... who
better (other than possibly bards) to have a chance at understanding passages
of a foreign language text?"
