I just got a copy of the Beta in the mail yesterday, and from initial skimming, I like what I see.  However I have an issue that I don't know if anyone has brought up.  In the beginning of the book there is a bit about how over time the character can raise their characteristics up to 6 through experience, However in the character creation section where it talks about spending experience, it says that the only time you can raise your characteristics is at character creation.

I assume that the former is correct rather then the latter.

nope the later .. .there is a talent in every talent tree that allows you to increase a stat by one.. its name eludes me though

Here was are now.. at the middle.. more and more.. I have the feeling we are getting nowhere...slowly we are getting nowhere and that is a pleasure... it is not irritating to be where one is ... it is only irritating to think one would like to be somewhere else... if we are irritated it is not a pleasure...nothing is a pleasure if we are irritated but suddenly it is a pleasure.. and more and more it is not irritating.. originally we were nowhere and now again we  have the pleasure of slowly being nowhere

Its the Dedication talent, pretty much every specialization has access to one of them, at the bottom of the tree.

That said, this mechanic does kind of lend to the metagame that it is simply the best idea to dump all starting xp into characteristics. Free skill points should keep you covered for the core day to day skills. Characteristic boosts are just too rare to pass up.
