Following official rules about skills that state: "Your skill ranks in a single skill can’t exceed your total character level." And some classes granting 8 + Int modifier per level, wouldn't those characters become some jack of all trades demigods? Is it right that a character (by example) starting with 11 points have at least (disconsidering trained class skill) 11 different skills first rank? I havent played Pathfinder, so I dont know how this will behave.

    \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to this Stack! Take the tour. It seems like you're looking for confirmation that rules work a certain way, and that's totally legit, but it might be useful to phrase the question so that you'll get a useful answer that solves what you think might be the problem. Do PCs routinely overcome challenges they probably shouldn't because of their wide variety of skills? or How does a GM challenge such omnicompetent PCs?, for example. As it stands, I'm not sure what an answer will say after Yes. :-) Thank you for participating and have fun! \$\endgroup\$ Commented Sep 14, 2017 at 5:32

    \$\begingroup\$ It's worth noting that most classes only get 4 or 6 +INT skills per level, and those classes my not have a very high INT score; if you have a 4+1 skills per level, choosing which ones to specialize in becomes a lot more difficult and you might start appreciating (or resenting) the Operative or Envoy that is able to get through the trickier situations. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Sep 14, 2017 at 16:36
