Defaulting

Although most skills will default normally (d4-2) the following skills will default to their controlling attribute -2:

Climbing (Strength)
Notice (Smarts)

Some other skills may default to their controlling attribute or these skill may drop to a normal default in certain circumstances. For instance, without the Notice Skill would could not be used actively to examine a room for clues with out some training for what you are looking for, so would default to D4-2.
