Exclusive: Skills that were rejected for 3rd Edition D&D

This afternoon, an anonymous source sent me what looks to be a legitimate copy of the notes regarding skills that were not included in the original version of 3rd Edition D&D, released in 2000. They are very interesting, to say the least. However, at a certain point, it really seemed to become a personal issue between one of the authors and the editor. Since this is my 100th post, I’ve included below the skills to which I’m referring along with the editor’s notes. I’ve removed the name of the author as I don’t want to bring him undo embarrassment. Enjoy!
