Questions about the EP setting.

>Flats are as I understand them normal evolved human stock. Can a flat be upgraded to a slyph or other morph using surgery without resleaving? IE. What would someone be considered as if they were born human and got all the upgrades w/o going for a completely new body?
>
>>This is important as such upgrades by the book's timeline have only been around for 70 years and I find it a little difficult to believe that sleaving would become so accepted so quickly, even with the sudden destruction of Earth. The old tend to be a conservative lot; they also tend to hold most of the economic cards.
>
>What are the costs for a character to start with their own ship? What about a small habitat? While the GM can always fiat it it would be nice for there to be some solid guidelines especially for mixed groups where some characters don't have any ownership of a vessel while others might own one themselves or have a large state in one.
>
>It seems a bit unclear in most of the equipment section how much everything costs in credits for purposes of character creation. Could you please post up a price list for the various bits of equipment? Or am I missing something here?
>
>What kind of life remains on Earth? And perhaps more importantly how much of the biological diversity did we manage to get off of Earth?

I can field the question

I can field the question about character creation equipment costs. On the table of cost categories, there's the average cost column, in the character creation chapter it says that gear bought at chargen is priced at this average cost within its category, it's only one sentence so it's kinda easy to gloss over :)

I saw that but many things

I saw that but many things don't have an "average" or "high" cost listing or at least don't seem to.

You must have a bad copy,

You must have a bad copy, then, because, except for ships, everything has
a "Trivial," "Low," "Moderate," "High," and "Expensive" listing in the item description. It is in brackets and in bold at the end of the item descriptions.
At least, it is in the copy I got at GenCon...
