Repeated Aptitudes

9 posts in this topic

In the rules it says under Regiment Creation that if the Homeworld offers an Aptitude and that Aptitude is also offered for the role the PC has, you get to choose a different Aptitude.  I don't have the book with me, but I recall that the wording of how you choose the alternate was strange.  How do you choose the alternate Aptitude?

I can't recall the exact wording but it goes something like this.

Every characteristic is assigned two apptitudes. For example the Fellowship characteristic is linked to the fellowship apptitude and the social apptitude.

If you get the fellow ship apptitude a second time you instead get the social apptitude. (Not sure what happens if you have the social and fellowship apptitudes and get one of them a second time).

Wrong, especially because if one gets Fellowship twice, he could aso get Social at the same time (i.e.: Ratling).

Wording was: "… instead choose an Aptitude he does not already have and that shares a name with a Characteristic…"

If we take the Ratling from my previous example, he could replace one Fellowship for Aptitude in Strength or Toughness (these two I don´t have to check to know a Ratling does not have) or any of the nine stats.

Right, thanks for clearing that up.

That does clear it up some, thanks.  So, if you have a repeater, you can then take any other Aptitude for a Characteristic that you don't already have?

Yep, basically. If you already had the Agility aptitude, and got it again from the "Survivalists" training, you could then pick Ballistic Skill, or Weapon Skill, or what-have-you.

So just for clarification's sake, that means you COULD NOT select something like Social or the like, right?

No, you couldn't - you can only chose another aptitude that has the same name as a Characteristic.
