Skills are the techniques employed by party members, enemies, and the player himself in LISA: THE PAINFUL and LISA: THE JOYFUL. They are the main way of dealing damage to the opponent, buffing or debuffing, and healing or restoring SP/TP as well. All party members boast unique skillsets, whether it's Olan Hoyt's archery-based attacks, Birdie Hall spitting up alcohol, or Bo Wyatt's magical songs.
Almost all skills use either SP or TP, and even the source of a skill can drastically alter the way you use a character. SP generally works like MP in a traditional RPG game. The user of the skill exhausts a given amount of SP in order to use it, and if they don't have the necessary SP, they can't use that skill.
TP works a little differently. There aren't nearly as many different ways to recover TP as there are SP, but the one major way is what sets the two apart: TP is recovered when the user gives or receives damage. This can lead to favorable outcomes if a TP user low on TP gets hit by a strong attack. Some TP users are also able to regain it on their own with special skills, such as Birdie Hall's Swig ability.
Some users will use a special skillset called a Combo Dial, in which the player gives an input using the WASD keys in order to chain attacks. Completing certain strings of these attacks, such as inputting WAWA while using Brad's Armstrong Style, will activate a corresponding skill, which in this case would be Machine Gun Fist (if the user has the necessary SP/TP to use that skill as if you were using it through the skill menu)
