Well folks, we are one event away from 2nd Edition. For the January game all characters will be converted to the new rules, so lets get ready for it. The past 9 months of work has finally come to a conclusion and we want to highlight some items to make the transition from 1st Edition to 2nd Edition smoother.
XP Changes: By far one of the biggest concerns as this will effect whats skills you keep come January game. To help you out here is a list of the changes:
Dead Languages - Increased to 10xp
Shadow - Increased to 15xp
Vanish - Decreased to 10xp
Tie Up - Reduced to 5xp
Inspect Item - Reduced to 5xp

Pick Pocket - Increased to 10xp
Conceal Object - Reduced to 5xp
Quick Search - Increased to 10xp
Soothing Tone - Reduced to 5xp

Mastery Changes: Another are in which XP costs have increased, though not as directly. If you do not meet the requirement for these skills you will be refunded the XP and have to purchase them again once you meet the requirements.
Melee Mastery: 30xp spent on Martial List.
Firearm/Throwing Mastery: 30xp spent on Marksmanship list.
Willpower - Any 5 civic advances, Any 5 Counselor advances.
Tradeskill Mastery - Prerequisite changed to be the 10xp service skill of the same Tradeskill. E.G. Tune Up for Gunsmith, Calibrate for Machinist, etc.
Advance Removals: A complete list of all of the advances removed from the game since September and into 2nd Edition.
Order: Follow My Lead!
Shave and a Haircut
Trailer Blazer Intent
Appraise Value (replaced with Appraise Item)
Focus Changes: Some advances had thier focus cost changed, I want to highlight these just to bring them to your attention.
Die Hard- Increased to 5 Focus
Challenge- Reduced to 1 Focus
Bind Wounds- Increased to 1 Focus
Soothing Tone- Reduced to 1 Focus
Rewrite: With all these changes we know some people will not want to continue with their character, or make significant changes to their existing character. So everyone is getting a free re-write to make the changes you see fit. We will be allowing folks to use the two 2nd Edition rulebooks we are providing at the December game to begin submit there new character sheets at the end of the event. If you are not making significant changes, you can use your existing sheet.
The team is looking forward to playing 2nd Edition. We hope you are too.
