    When I remember correctly you can gain skill points when using a skill.
    Is there a system behind it or does it happen randomly?
    Anyway of raising the chance for getting skill points this way?

    No you don't.

    Thank Frith for that, too. The concept of using skills to gain skill points may be realistic, but it sucks as a gaming concept.

    Using doctor, first aid, steal and lockpick will gain you experience points, though. You'll get a message when it happens.

    I have to disagree.
    It worked very well in Adom.

    But from the other side S.P.E.C.I.A.L. is the only cRPG character developement system that works very well without it.

    I could swear that you could also gain skill points that way.
    Maybe I messed that up the Jagged Alliance.
