A quick study

Add a new subrule to the rule “Skills” with the following text

As a weekly action, an earthling may either attempt to teach or to train. To teach, he names another earthling, a skill and roles a DICE6. If the result is less than or equal to the difference between the first earthling’s level in that skill and the second earthling’s level in the same skill, the second earthling may once within the next 24 hours append the letter for that skill to his skills. To train, he picks a skill which he has at least one level in and roles a DICEN where N is his level in that skill. If the result is a 1, the earthling may once append the letter for that skill to his skills.

Not wasting a proposal slot on this yet because I think it needs work. Namely its a lot easier to level up yourself than train. I could decrease the DICE6, but I like it being easier to train someone if you are a much higher level than someone else. Feedback appreciated.

The biggest issue i have with this is that it is impossible for an Earthling to teach themselves a new skill. They have to be taught by someone else. From there they can train it, but I wish there was some way to learn new skills yourself.
