No character may start with more than 2 skills at 4
Standard restrictions on advantages and disadvantages will be lifted or enforced on a case by case basis.
All characters are required to take at least one disadvantage for no points. This will play a part in your characters background and motivate further roleplaying. Rewards will be alloted for full background development to make up for point losses.
All players will receive additional BP’s for creating and fleshing out 5 npc’s of various power levels. There is a sane limit to these.
