Wait, there's a limit?

*Looks at her -1200 XP spent on negative traits.*

*Whimpers.*

But... 500 can't be right.  There are -1000 XP traits!

The negative traits from Lifepaths don't give you bonus xp, btw. This applies to end-of-creation adding in of traits. :x

If you use a point buy system, then the first 500 xp worth of negative traits will give you up to that much in bonus XP you can spend. If you use lifepaths then AFTER you do all your lifepath stuff, you can get up to 500XP worth of negative traits to get up to that much bonus xp.

The book explains it better, at the end (I think) of the character creation sections. It just means there is a cap on bonus xp you can get from negative Traits.

I vote for ignoring that rule.  Or at least raising the cap.

Page 88. Note, that even getting to buy negative traits in exchange for more xp is an OPTIONAL thing, so the limitation is already more than you normally get. :3

But whatever. It's Allie's decision, and for the time being she said the limit is still set. I don't really mind it since we're NOBODIES, relatively speaking. If we had bunches more xp, we probably wouldn't be in this Vid program for losers. :)

Eh, not really; the established reason for not having made the big time yet has more to do with the lack of a decent break than a lack of talent.  Rising young stars are supposed to be quite capable.

This is true, and rising stars don't mean nobodies.

Note, I'll probably be ready before I slide off to bed tonight, which is usually . . what . . 2 or 3 Elliquiy-Time? I dunno. Mainly working on fluff and deciding if I want to swap around stuff at this point.

Adorable enough for my techie/pilot? (SFW) http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/326799/boots-engineer-gloves-goggles-helm-overalls-pink_h

I'll try to catch up tonight (I don't want to force everyone to hear the Allie-rant about my last couple days.. Once in the SB was quite enough), but I'm still at work and will be for several more hours.

Works for me.  I take it that means the -500 XP cap on negative traits is back in place?

Well I still need to finish my guy, but some of the Traist he has allows him a choice of Mechs, and even customize his Mech.  I'm puting pointsinto those cause certain Mechs I hate and I'd at least like a pick from a list.
