Please let me know if I got this right:
Let's say I want to buy a Common Quality Plasma Pistol (Ryza). According to page 118, this is a Very Rare item.
If I understand correctly, first I need to find this item. This is a Commerce (or Inquiry) Test. I go to a city with 200,000 population, so my Test suffers a penalty of -10 (Table 5-1).
I spend One Week (Table 5-2) looking around, and then I roll my Commerce (or Inquiry) Test with a penalty of -10. If I succeed, I've found the item (but I haven't acquired it yet).
Now I must roll an Acquisition Test, with a penalty of -20 because the item is Very Rare (Table 9-35), but with a bonus of +30 because I only want to buy a single item (Table 9-35). Thus, roll under Profit Factor +10.
1) travel to a city with 100,000+ population,
2) spend a week looking,
3) roll Commerce (or Inquiry) Test at -10,
if you succeed,
4) roll Profit Factor Test at +10.
Right so far? I've another couple of questions about the same topic, but I'd like to know first if I got the basics.
Thanks in advance!
