The focus skill represents a character’s ability to tap into the spiritual energies of a religious belief system and somewhat reliably create “miracles” with that energy. It is not used alone however; miracles are not possible without the faith skill also being involved (though in some cases miracles can occur without needing the focus skill.) The complete rules for performing miracles can be found in Chapter Eleven. Focus is an unusual skill in that it cannot normally be taught to another character. In most belief systems, the ability to perform miracles is seen as a gift or a blessing, not something that can simply be learned like any other ability. Players who wish to have their characters acquire the focus skill during gameplay will need

to discuss the matter with their gamemaster and determine how, and if, the character can get the skill.
