The central focus of my book is an armed revolution/uprising against a hostile government. In order to successfully wage war, one must have many people with a wide variety of skills for a wide variety of purposes and jobs. I am going to have "Loads and Loads of Characters" (as TVtropes calls it), and many of them will die. So, to keep things clear, I am creating an Excel document which lists all my characters across the top, and all the required skills down the side, with an "X" in each character's column for each skill that they have. For example, one character is a mechanic/welder by trade, so her skills would include welding, assembling things by hand, reading blueprints, etc. So here's where I need help, since I must think so broadly and include every last necessary function: I need help compiling a list of various general skills that would be useful in serving the roles needed by a revolutionary army. So far I have: - Running - Climbing - Welding - Reading blueprints - Operating heavy machinery - Assembling things by hand - Mixing chemicals to create compounds - Record keeping - Map reading - Food preparation - Construction - Carpentry - Organisation - Radio operation What other skills would be necessary to support a makeshift army? The more, the better. Thanks!
