[Skills help] toughness


Through rigorous training and the perils of a hard lifestyle, barbarians 
slowly learn to toughen themselves so that weapons do not affect them as 
much.  This toughness ability functions as if the barbarian is wearing
armor even if they are not wearing anything on that section of their body.

Toughness is a skill that improves as the barbarian gains in experience
and eventually can deflect just as much damage as even the best platemail.
Toughness does not stack with worn armor or with races that have toughened
hide.  When it comes to deflecting damage hide, armor and toughness are
all considered and the best of the three categories are used.

All griffons receive toughness as an innate skill regardless of class.
