There's a new Dev Journal on the Trials of Ascension Forums. NeutroniumDragon elaborates on how the stats and skills work together.
All jesting aside, ToA's skill and stat system is something that we've been keeping tightly locked away, but since it's also something that undergoes regular review and tweaking, it makes for an excellent dev journal subject. And since we know just how much everyone is chomping at the bit for some information - *any* information - we're going to let a few little details slip through that securely guarded vault door. The recently-posted FAQ update describes some of the basic ideas behind the skill system, of course, so this journal will try to expand on what's presented there rather than simply restating the already-known.
