Not precisely an oversight, I prefer keeping knowledge skills as being whatever you think your character would know, having just one is silly! Just my opinion, easy enough for people to list a skill!

Definitely an approach I can agree with. Having only a single knowledge skill just feels too limiting to me as well.

I don't want to derail the thread too much but I'm considering a house rule where players would receive multiple free knowledge skills. In my head it's something like 5:

1 street or academic knowledge skill
1 professional knowledge skill
1 interest/hobby knowledge skill
1 area knowledge skill
1 extra language

Third Edition also had an interesting rule where if you had an active skill at rating 4+ then you automatically had the associated knowledge skill at Rating minus 3. Obviously Anarchy doesn't have ratings for knowledge skills but I thought it was a good guideline for what the character might know even if they don't have a specific knowledge skill.

Now, back to the thread previously in progress:

@Aria, Hellion's Strength is 6. Damage is Strength/2 damage rounded up, so you could move Strength to 5 without giving up any damage. If you move that die into Logic you would lose out a bit on Athletics but would gain an extra die for extra Perception and Dodging. That might be useful for a Stealthy character who gets up close and personal with danger.

As for Requiem, I believe the consensus from this thread is that the Move-by-Wired amp should only be -1 Essence, not -2. That ruling makes sense to me, as it helps balance cybered characters with their Awakened counterparts. Otherwise, a cybered character could drop their entire Essence in one super-amp and not have as much to do with their other amp slots, unlike the Awakened who will happily fill and upgrade all amp slots until their karma runs out.

Love how easy it is to create characters!!!

Here's another offering <warning, naked lady pic attached>


The first piece of gear 'runner survival kit' is a house rule I'm considering - has a burner link, fakeSIN and some other minor essentials... 4 pieces of gear just isn't enough!!!  Don't think that will break anything too badly!?
