For 5 BP, the Gearhead is gifted at piloting a specific vehicle (i.e. a Suzuki Mirage racing bike or a MiG-67 panzer).
For 15 BP, the Gearhead is gifted at piloting any vehicle of a given type (i.e. bikes, cars, trucks, rotorcraft)."


"Fame

Local Fame (5 BP):

For Fame, RC p. 98 has the Global Fame at 20 BP. Most likely this should be reduced to 15. While the Gearhead 15 BP probably should be reduced to 10 BP.

But I'm just a fan, and as such can easily be overruled by a designer. ;)

I'm just a freelancer, and can also be overruled by a designer/developer/whatever...but, personally?  My rule of thumb is "screw it, when in doubt, help the player."  So I'd go for the lower-listed costs, in every instance. 

Build points already go fast enough, and it's once the dice are rolling that you screw over PCs, not during character creation.   ;D

An as offical as it has ever gotten response was given once:

Gearhead is 5 or 10

And the best i can find says:

Fame is 5, 10, 15, not the 20 for global.

Man, it's Runner's Companion.

Those errors run too deep for errata.
