This rule was proposed by J. K. Mosher.
In some cases a character may pick events that repeatedly give them the same skills. Some events allow for an alternate skill to be selected if the character already possesses the first skill listed. An alternate skill is available when one skill is listed and then another. For example "Marksmanship or Hunting". Normally when that Event is chosen the character gets the Marksmanship skill but if the character already possesses that skill, then they get the Hunting skill. The GM may allow a character to purchase an event twice in order to get both skills if the player desires.
