EPICS - Epic skills are unlocked by finding the Epic. To enable for a character, it must be available on the character's skill list and you need to upgrade their respective Standard skills to level A.
Epic skills combine the effects of multiple Standard skills, generally provide less of a bonus for one particular category compared to the Standard skill
Raging Lion - Double effect: Stamina/Attack
Fate Control - Double effect: Attack/Technique
Swift Foot - Double effect: Technique/Agility
Divine Right - Double effect: Magic/Incantation
Zen Sword - Triple effect: Attack/Incantation/Sword of Magic. Game's description forgot to not mention Sword of Magic. Sword of Magic skill is not needed to upgrade to unlock Zen Sword.
Armor of Gods - Double effect: Defense/Magic Defense
Triple Harmony - Triple effect: Attack/Vitality/Agility
All-out Strike - Triple effect: Vitality/Agility/Incantation
Untold Clarity - Affects all combat skills except Stamina
Sacred Oath - Affects all magic skills. Sword of Magic skill is not needed to upgrade to unlock Sacred Oath although the skill boost is present.
Royal Paradise - Affects all combat and magic skills
Karmic Effect - Double effect: Defense/Technique

SUPPORT
Healing - heal between rounds in battle (5% of max HP)
Trade In - can sell items from inventory
Escape Route - escape normal battles 100%. Note: This skill will not get you through Lunas Forest, you need specific characters. Also, this is NOT required to open the shortcut through Baska Mines, you just need to enter the Mines from Dwarf Village.
Forge - blacksmith, in a can!
Potch Finder - increase potch won from normal battles
Rune Sage - rune services (Attach, Remove, Combine, Make scroll)
Appraisal - appraisal services... in a can! Can sell antiques in inventory.
Treatment - heal after battle (20% of max HP) including battles avoided (Bribe/Retreat/Release)

Cook - increases the chances of ingredients dropping from battles
Haggle - decreases price of items sold by shops by 10% and increases the value of items you sell to shops by 10%

Charge % I don't know, but thrust-back is basically a different name for counter attacking.

I have a question what's the max number of skill slots in the game? I'm going to be real bored if it's only two throughout the whole thing.

It really depends on what you want them to do. I have Agility and Magic on the Prince right now, while Lyon has Technique and Attack. Anything works, though.

I concur, I beat the game my first time through getting the already equpped skills to C only. So you can pretty much beat the game pretending skills don't even exist; anything works.

I have a real quick question that is probably answered somewhere else, but I can't seem to find the answer; how the heck do you increase skills past C rank? Is it part of the plot or something? I'm messing around with Richard's Runes and Skills, and I wanna improve him more (not that he needs it!).

You have to have the items that allow you to increase your skills to higher levels (Basic Magic etc...) see this topic to find out where some of them are
http://www.suikosource.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=5998

They only work with people with the Tutor/Combat Instructor skill (Georg and Zerase)

The 'Bard' skill changes the music during battle. That's it.
