Right. I’m trying to sort out some starting gear for my character, and I’m running into problems. Basically, it seems like there are different costs for stuff in different places. We’re on a Low Index world.
- I want a CEBW. What’s the correct cost?
a. 1RP gets you a basic weapon of the appropriate index (p111). So one RP.
b. 1RP gets you 4TTPs (p111). 2TTPs gets you a close combat weapon (p382). So ‘half’ an RP - for one RP I could get a CEBW and a hand-to-hand weapon, or a concealable CEBW.
- I also want a psychohistory workshop. What’s the correct cost?
a. A tool set or workshop appropriate to your lifepaths costs 1RP (p110).
b. A psychohistory workshop costs 2RPs during character burning (p239).
c. 1RP gets you 4TTPs (p111). Tools for psychohistorians cost 10TTPs (p386). So 3RPs, with some room to tweak.
I’ll probably have follow-up questions, because I want to tweak stuff as well, but I’m trying to get the basics straight first.
