Optimization question
« on: 08 May 2012, 21:49:18 »
The optimization process must come before attempting to use negative Traits to gain XP under the Buying Additional Experience Points rule

okay, but if I use the (Optional) Additional points rule to get Fast learner and or Tech Empathy that changes the calculations for Skills, and would throw the Optimization out of whack or is that just the price of that rule ?

It depends on how your GM wants to interpret that particular bit.

I myself have no problems with my players optimizing as if they had fast learner already even if they don't get it until post optimization.

Worst case scenario is you will wind up with banked XP in skills making it a bit easier to get their rank up during the course of a campaign.

Honestly, the end processes of the character generation seem like they should be more flexible in my mind.

I'd rather think of the entire process as more..nebulous than its written.

I mean really. Most likely you can buy Fast Learner during the optimization process, rather than having to wait for buying negative traits.

Of course, GMs may say differently.
