Full Version: Edge 8
Dumpshock Forums > Discussion > Shadowrun
Assuming the character is human, how many build points does Edge 8 actually cost, adding in the cost of the "lucky" quality? I've got it at [(10x6)+25+20] or 105 points. Anyone else wanna do the math?

the question is, does the 7th "dot" in Edge cost 25 pts, or the 8th?

Making a "Lucky Bastard" character with moderate stats across the board and a heavy listing of skill-groups; I'd rather do it right, or not at all.

Human Edge = 2
Lucky = 20
3-7 = 50
8 = 25
Total 95
With Lucky, the 7th point only costs 10. No matter what the score, only the last costs 25.

So a human(0), with Lucky(20), buys Edge to 7(50) for 70 and finally to 8 for 25-it's actually only 95 BPs. it's still quite a chunk...but Edge 8 is pretty powerful indeed. I mean, you could take the full 35 BPs of Negative Qualities to alleviate some of that-the whole thing would then cost 60-so you'd still have a whopping 340 BPs for Attributes, Resources, and Skills.
As a GM, I might also insist on a movement restriction due to the chaffing caused by the Horseshoe stuck up the character's hoop.

but due to MrSlammo's Lucky Charms the ShadowTeam can not find him. grinbig.gif Seems they always have just missed him.

Yeah, but imagine the chaffing from all that running. Cause a few hours in the bathroom with a tube of soothing cream. Maybe thats the idea.
