What stat & development point system does Cyberspace use?

What stat & development point system does Cyberspace use?

I've seen mentioned of a simplified character generation system in Cyberspace, and I'm curious what that means exactly.

Is it the normal 10 stat system, with 5 of them contributing development points, and then very RM-like skill costs? Or is it something different?

Thanks!

There are 11 stats, the normal 10, plus Appearance.

You then choose a profession and then roll for Social Class (each profession has its own column).

There are 33 Primary skills and 25 secondary skills

There is an Adolescent Skill Table (i.e. you get certain ranks based on your Social Class).

Then you do Apprenticeship Training, and for it (and for future levels), you gain a specific number of points for each category of skills
The categories are as follows (with the skill points gained each level for  the "Sneak" profession as an example):

Code: [Select]
Maneuvering Skills -- 2
Weapon Skills      -- 2
General Skills     -- 1
Subterfuge Skills  -- 6
Social Skills      -- 3
Cyberspace Skills  -- 0
Technics Skills    -- 1
Special Skills     -- 1*
Secondary Skills   -- 2*

In short, Cyberspace basically works in the manner in which MERP used to work. You can move DPs from one cat to another 4 will give you 1 in any cat that starts with 0, 2 will give you 1 in any cat that started with more than 0 points, and the cats with the asterisks get 1 for each point moved to it.

All skills basically have a cost of 1/2. Unspent points are lost.


That about covers it...
