Mining and Mining Detection Abilities
So, human PC. Has the Mining Proficiency at a proficiency score of 15.
What are their chances of doing dwarf, gnome, or halfling mining detection tricks? Grade or slope, shifting walls, etc? I'm aware of the dwarf Mining Detection Proficiencies, but would you let someone with just Mining do any of that? What about Underground Survival?The Cranky Gamer

Re: Mining and Mining Detection Abilities
Underground Survival is a subset of the Survival proficiency, so I would be unwilling to let a person with "mining" do more than detect possible gas pockets or areas prone to cave-ins, and what to do if you are trapped by a cave-in. Other than that, mining knowledge wouldn't really cover everything that is assumed to be included by the Survival proficiency (Direction, how to find food/water, etc)."Sleeping late might not be a virtue, but it sure aint no vice.

I think, therefore I get really, really annoyed at people who won't.
