I'm not sure how to read the stats for NPC's listed in the book. for instance: Pets (pp. 330), AI (pp. 332), and [spoiler alert] Exhumans (pp. 362) my question is do the skill ratings allready include the rating of the relevant atribute? So, my little budy Gilligan (that's my Space Roach :D ) has a listed INT of 10 and the perception skill at 20. Does that mean he has to roll under 20 to percieve, meaning his 'actual' skill rating is 10? Or do I have to add the listed skill rating of 20 to his ability of 10 meaning he he has to roll under 30? is the perception rating of my Muse 30 or 50? My Muse has a skill rating of 60 in Accademics: Psychology. Since a Muse is basicaly just running skillsofts which are capped at 40 (see pp. 332) does that mean my Muse has an unlisted COG stat of 20? If my Muse is really that smart does it know that it's smarter than my character?
Spoiler: Highlight to view
[sorry I don't know how to do spoiler code here so; [B]SPOILERRRR![/B]] Does a predator exhuman have a Fray skill of 100?! even if 99 is the maximum posible for transhumans? or does a predator buy the fray skill at a paltry 20 points? Whatayaknow? I guess I can do spoiler code here :)
