NEROŽ Unified Teaching Play-test
Version 1.0 2006-06-18
For NERO Rules: Graham Hine

Objective

Codify a system for finding a teacher to learn new skills.

Rule

This is a slot (tag) system for learning new skills and dealing with logistics. Most players receive one teaching slot per production day, though Craftsman: Teaching optionally gives an additional teaching slot per production day instead of the two (2) silver normally received for other craftsman skills.

Teaching Others:

Procedure:

  1. Get the build for the skill.
  2. Find a teacher who has the skill and a teaching slot they're willing to use.
  3. We encourage you to roleplay learning the skill for around 10 minutes per slot. Have fun with it!
  4. On the teacher's character sheet, note the name of the student, and the name of the skill.
  5. On the student's character sheet, note the name of the teacher, and the name of the skill, and the free build spent.
  6. Teacher, sign the student's sheet, making sure it's correct.
  7. Turn in sheets to logistics when you check out. If things aren't filled out correctly, or if there are errors, the teaching will be void.

Notes:

**It is helpful if you have the teaching information on your card already completed before you come to a Plot Member. Also, both the teacher and the student must be there to confirm the exchange.

You can teach yourself any skill.

  3. Mark your character sheet with the name of the skill you are teaching yourself, how many teaching slots you are spending on it, how much free build spent, and how much free build you have left.
