No way to adjust Languange level, or Enter Knowledge Subject

Issue #37 resolved
Iron Serpent Prince created an issue

I will admit up front that I don’t have any screenshots of this because it is more of a functional problem that can’t be seen with a still image.

When putting together my test character, I couldn’t adjust the level of understanding of a new language added under Knowledge Skills. It was added at “Basic Understanding,” with a “-” and “+” on either side of it, and I couldn’t change that.

When adding Knowledge Skills, I couldn’t find any way to change the default value of “Knowledge” to something else.

    Just to check. Does your screen look like this in the assistant?

    If you don’t see the pen button, but only a small square, than the icon is missing.

    As for the “Basic Understanding”: It was my understanding, that you cannot raise the level higher during creation, but I forgot to disable to “+” button. But I need to check first, if my rule interpretation was correct.

    Ahah! So that is what the little 6 in a circle next to the skills is supposed to mean. 😉 (I’ll attach a screenshot)

    As for the Language level, page 67 of the Sixth World Core Book PDF has the following under “Knowledge and Language Skills” in the first column:

    Characters can buy additional levels of Language skills as if it were an additional Knowledge skill, but only one Native-level Language skill is allowed.

    I take that to mean that you can have more than Basic Understanding at the cost of 1 Knowledge Skill point per level, max of Expert.

    I agree. It was my understanding from page 99 (right upper half), that “Language skills are Knowledge skills with specialization ranks.” meant, that each rank - even the first one - is to be treated as a specialization, for which the limit “only one specialization” at chargen applies. But the quote from p.67 clarifies that.

    I’ll fix that.

    Found and fixed in upcoming Beta 2. (Both, the Icon (I hope) and the fact that you could not raise the language level)
    Thank you for the reort.
