Greetings,
Been bugging me a while this. If your players encounter a ninja they've never met before, what would be the appropriate skill to know who they are, and their skills/abilities etc.

My first thought was immediately just defaulting to nin lore as the most appropriate skill, but now I'm not sure. You could just as easily argue knowledge (streetwise) for rogue/missing-nin, knowledge (current events) if they've done something recently, and maybe even Research if you're using a Bingo Book.

How do you all handle it? Any advice would be appreciated.
Kind regards,
TheTrulyAvaricious

That's generally what the Ninja Lore skill was made for. However, on a case by case basis other knowledges might apply based on context.
