Work rolls are used by the 'work' command to generate resources. The default work rolls are:
Economic: intellect + economics
Military: command + war
Social: charm + diplomacy
Each Organization (Kinship, Houses, Priesthoods, etc) is able to request customized work rolls that best reflect the IC (In Character) views, mission, and objectives of that organization. An organization can have a maximum of two rolls per resource type, and only one of the rolls can use a combat skill. To add the alternate rolls to your organization, send in an +request with some information explaining the rationale for the rolls.
1/5 of your roll will be deposited into your @Org's resource bank.
Work costs 15 AP to run per command.
