I was looking over the changelog between BWG and BWGR, and noticed some changes around read/write which I Was wondering about. I don’t have the new book, but was curious if read/write were removed entirely, or are just not available on as many lifepaths as they used to be? Is the default assumption that everyone is literate now?
I’d appreciate any clarification on what’s intended here.
The skills are still in the game. The default has always been extensive illiteracy, but I believe those changes are because the Read and Write skills are available in earlier lifepaths required by the lifepaths that were changed.
A lot of those changes were about stripping out redundant skills on the lifepaths and therefore the inflated skill point values associated with them.
Thanks, Thor. That makes a lot of sense, and I can see where there is some fat that could be trimmed.
