After a series of indirectly receiving tips and personal epiphanies, I decided to rewrite all my characters for superior performance. One of my characters is an infolife hacker. Computer skills purchased by infolives are half off, social skills are twice as expensive. You would expect to see superior COG and less SAV, but I was thinking about the opposite aproach. Broke: COG 30+30=60 SAV 5+55=60 15+110=125 points used Woke: COG 5+55=60 SAV 30+30=60 27.5+60=87.5 points used As you can see, less total points are used if I invest in the SAV aptitude rather than COG. This, however, feels unnatural to me (and seeing as I am a transhumanist, that's saying something). Will having low COG have unforeseen consequences, especially in hacking?
