Skills and Abilities
There were no character levels in Roma Victor. However there was a 'skill' tree which replaced this function. Character development in Roma Victor was designed to simulate real life. That is, if a player wished to improve his woodcutting skill, he had to go out in the woods and cut some trees down. From those trees, he could then extract sticks and turn them into handles to train his preparing skill. Those handles could then be used by a smith to make simple tools.
Most craftable items could be made and used by anyone, however there were certain items, like the lorica segmentata scale armour that could only be made and worn by legionaries. Several items, like the hideshirt could only be made and worn by barbarians. There were no level or skill restrictions, but the resulting item quality suffered greatly when a person was not a master in the required skills to produce the item. A player wishing to make high-quality items had to train his skills by practicing menial tasks requiring that skill. A large number of items were never made craftable, including several weapon types and a majority of armor types.
Skill areas in Roma Victor included carpentry, smithing, construction, combat, farming, animal handling and more. In the Roman faction, a slave character earned citizenship after gaining a certain number of skill masteries and reputations.
Many branches of the skill tree were never implemented.
