Howdy.

SR 4, p.73 says players can't spend more than 200 BP on attributes for a standard 400 BP character. However, 10 out of their 16 samples characters (which appear to be 400 BP characters) break that rule using 210 to 250 BP on attributes.

Is there a rule exception I didn't see somewhere, or did they just break the rule?

Edge, Magic and Resonance don't count against the 200 BP, only physical/mental attributes.

Ah ha! Thank you. I was misled by the line that said "Attributes (250 BP)." It seems so obvious now that you mention it. I guess it's a lot to absorb when you first get the new book.

Also make sure to check the Errata. Lots of those sample characters are wrong in one way or another.

You could make her a physical mage instead and get two more dice from a mentor spirit.
