(Answered) SLDF Affiliation
« on: 11 June 2015, 16:17:53 »
In Era Report 3062, there's an Affiliation for the Second Star League. Its an Affiliation that's added on to your primary Affiliation, much like ComStar/WoB.

However, there doesn't seem to be a similar Affiliation for the First Star League in Era Report 2750.

Is this on purpose? And if so, why so? And how should you handle characters that join the SLDF?

1. Yes, this is on purpose.
2. The why is for fluff differences between the 1st and 2nd SL.
3. Please expand on your last question. I'm not sure I understand what you're asking, an example would be helpful.

The solution is just ignore Paul.

Well, it just seems strange. I mean, in the Second Star League Affiliation from ER3062 you get Protocol/SLDF, and some Reputation and other traits/skills.

With ER2750 however, there's really nothing. There's a new module, and you have the choice to take the ToD: Clan module, replacing the Bloodname points with Rank points,but other than that...there's not really anything to indicate that you've gone over to the SLDF.

It just seemed rather strange in comparison between the two. I know the two Star Leagues aren't the same, so the two being exactly the same is pretty unlikely, but I figured it was worth a question or two.

Yes, there's too much of a difference between the two time periods for a lot of similarities to exist.
