Purchase Physical/Mental Attributes
Improving a character’s Physical or Mental attributes costs 2 Build Points to increase an attribute by +1.
Players may not spend more than half their total BP on Physical and Mental attributes.
All characters start with an Essence of 6. This may be decreased by
implants such as cyberware or bioware, but it can never be increased.
Purchasing Active Skills
Your character starts with a rating of 0 in all skills. Rating 0 does not mean that your character is ignorant or clueless, only that he has the same amount of training (or lack thereof ) as anyone else. If a character has a skill at a rating greater than zero, then he knows more than the average person on the street. Raising a skill costs 1 BP per rating point up to the associated attribute and 2 BP up to one and one half times the associated attribute.
Purchasing Knowledge Skills
Your character starts with a number of Knowledge skill points equal to (Intelligence) x 3. You may also purchase additional Knowledge skill points at a rate of 1 SP per BP point. The maximum number of Knowledge skill points you may purchase is also equal to your (Intelligence) x 3. In other words, you can only increase your total Knowledge skill points up to double your starting amount. Note that Language skills are also purchased from this pool of Knowledge skill points.
Purchasing Language Skills
Your character starts with a number of Language skill points equal to (Intelligence) x 1.5. You may also purchase additional Language skill points at a rate of 1 SP per BP point. The maximum number of Language skill points you may purchase is also equal to your (Intelligence) x 3.
Note that Language skills and Knowledge skill are purchased from the same pool of points.
Any real world languages are available.
Qualities are special advantages and disadvantages that may help or hinder your character. They are not special gear or magical powers, but rather innate or intangible characteristics that often come to the forefront during the stressful situations our heroes find themselves in. Qualities can either be positive or negative. Players purchase qualities during character creation. Note that some qualities function as prerequisites if you wish to create certain types of characters.
