Trying to interpret the wording of Bestow Skill: The Difficulty Rating for the bestowed skill is boosted by 1.

Does this mean that one rank in Bestow Skill does nothing and 2 ranks are required to actually have a positive effect?

Does this mean that the thane with the skill doesn't actually have the skill themselves?(i.e. can't use, can only bestow)

I knew this one was in our errata but I had a real hard time finding it on the boards. This was missed in the 2015 reprint. It's actually on page 7 of the errata thread. For convenience here it is:

Errata: "Bestow Skill" has the opposite effect as intended. The fixed version should read:
"BESTOW SKILL (...)
[N/A]
The possessor of this skill does not benefit from it. Someone who possesses this skill can bestow +2 ranks in the specified skill (listed in brackets) to any adjacent allies. The ally receives the bonus so long as they remain adjacent."

+2 for each rank?

If a Forge Beast Nanus Drake has Bestow Skill: Craft 5, that seems like it should be +5 to your skill, not +2 or +10.

I don't believe that's the full text. Not on my PC right now. It's somewhere on the boards, but it scales +1 per instance.
