I want to build a character who's participated in many of the wars near and in the Worldwould. I'm not sure what skill covers this background. I thought something like Craft (warfare) might be appropriate, but the game doesn't support such a specialty. What skill best represents knowledge of warfare and participation in a lot of battles?

I want to develop towards an expert of tactics so people beliefe in me when I tell them what to do, due to my experience. Later on I want to combine this with Leadership and Mystic Marshall.

  • \$\begingroup\$ What all specifically do you want the skill to reflect? I edited your other comment in... If you want a skill that makes you better in tactics in some concrete way you probably need to have a discussion with your GM, because they're not guaranteed to interpret Craft/Prof skills past their "make some money" RAW in a consistent way. \$\endgroup\$

Profession: soldier is the usual answer to this. But it does depend what exactly you mean and want to do - there's profession:siege engineer, etc. for the many, many aspects of warfare.
