First, I have read through all of the old posts for
the past 3 months, as well as the core ruleset as it
stands now and very much like what has been set thus

By this, do you mean that the skill group is an
average of skills contained within the group? If yes,
then I would agree that this is the way to go, and I
very much like the concept. For example, a PC with
skills in sculpture and dancing (art) would be more
adept at attempting a skill he/she does not currently
have, but falls under the art category (for example,
painting). In other words, the PC has some skills in
art and would perform better than a PC with no art

I think a "Trades" or similarly-named skill would go
nicely here. Unless that fits under Knowledges.
