Aren't knowledge skill specializations only one BP?

Edit: Damnit.... No. No they are not. This sucks. Is it just wasted BP?

Hold on *checks* Indeed you are right, they are 2 BP, too. So yeah, one single BP is pretty useless if you are maxed out on money BP and dont have contacts...

Anything else?

Synaptic Booster 2 alone costs a fortune...

No contacts is a pretty rough stand to start with, but if you're ok with it...

I don't have a whole lot of choice. I've already stripped him down to what I feel is necessary for him to be the character I want him to start as. Having no contacts is also acceptable in relation to his story and personality.

And yes. My Bioware cost me an arm and a leg. That's why it looks like my gear is modest, but I've spent 250,000

You can always get 5,000¥ more resources for one point. That could be gear, or even gives you one more month of Middle Lifestyle.

If you can get your hands on the Runners Companion you could try out Karma Gen, it tends to bring out more... well rounded characters.

I'll check it out. Is it the kinda thing where I would need GM permission? I don't want to make so him that some GMs wont let me use him.

Edit: I don't know. It looks really complicated and time-consuming. This character is supposed to be pretty specialized. He's just a little underdeveloped outside of combat right now. Mostly because of the cost of being a Magic-user AND having Bioware. The first Karma I earn will start to remedy that.

Karma Gen lets you spend more than BP Gen, so yeah, your GM would have to aprove (depends a lot on the char you are making, but most of the time you get a character worth 500 to 550 BP).

Yeah, this guy is 400. If I made him 500 then I wouldn't have any problems with BP. :)

He's probly for the play-by-post section of the forums, so making him standard, since I don't know what game or GM he will be involved with, is probably a good idea.

Might be writing some short fiction about him too.

(I don't have people to play with where I live.)
