I found info that "mundane skills start out activated", but which of them are mundane? Is it described somewhere?

All skills are mundane while "skills" also contains spells and liturgical chants, which are not mundane.
See Page 21, it's a naming problem, they should have called the skills (without " ") in that diagram mundane skills to make it more clear.

Don't know if this is typo or what, so help me out :)

Page 376 (containers) - Price for Belt pouch is 40.5 silverthalers, and for leather backpack is 34 silverthalers!?
Is this price for belt pouch correct? I'm little surprised to see it more expensive than backpack.

Couple of quick questions about poisons.

  1. Rules says that if poison check failed than effect of poison is lessened. What if poison is already lessened/weakened ? Than there is no effect on victim or?
  2. Why is "Start time" of Arax poison (page 342) so long (10 min)? It's a weapon/animal poison (distilled spider poison). It doesn't make sense to use this poison in combat through weapon and it's listed only as a combat poison. Combat usually don't last for 10 min.

1) how is it weakened before the check? you cant weaken an effect before it happens.

2)Hunt is also a part of "combat" if you want to weaken your opponent you can hit them in an ambush and attack later.
and i think arax is the weaker non-refined version of arachnae isnt it ?. the other one is instant and stronger.

1) It's written in Core book on page 342.
Preserving Poisons
Poisons do not remain potent forever. As a rule of thumb, a poison’s toxicity lessens after three months. This weakened poison causes the effect listed after the slash under the poison’s Effect, and uses the duration listed after the slash under the poison’s Duration. Poisons lose their potency entirely after six months and become harmless, no matter how well preserved.


2) I agree that hunt is part of the combat (guerilla tactics), but it's hard to play guerilla tactics with close weapons.
I don't know what arachnae is. This poison is not listed in Core book or Bestiary. At least I can't find it.
