Survival

The ability to forage, hunt, create shelter, and similarly fairly handy skills in avoiding dying while away from civilization. This is the individual that can tell the party which brightly colored berries are safe to eat, and lie to someone they don't like to cause wacky fatal hijinks.

Survival is also used in tests of ruggedness and endurance, such as determining whether you can stay conscious when very injured, and even to avoid death when critically wounded. Because of its literal life-or-death applications, it's classified as a combat skill for costs.
