Right, so I've never done this (blog post) before, but I'll do my best to make this orderly and coherent. Hope I do this right. The following is a list of confirmed skills in Skyrim.

Combat 1.Heavy Armor 2.Archery 3.One Handed 4.Two Handed 5.Block 6.Smithing

Magic 1.Enchanting 2.Alteration 3.Restoration 4.Destruction 5.Conjuration 6.Illusion


1.Light Armor 2.Sneak 3.Alchemy 4.Speechcraft 5.Security (lock picking) 6.???

The last skill is up in the air as of this posting.

Update 1: Security is confirmed - May 2011 interview.

Q: How do you handle lockpicking?

Todd Howard: We have a mini game for it. I hate the concept of mini-games! "Combat is also a mini game!". What I mean is that if there is a skill for it, then there must be some kind of interaction onscreen, so it is not a [behind the scenes] roll.
