    Some quick questions about Skill Specialties...

    I think I understand
    * They are gained during character creation for any skill at or above three dots, for free
    * They may be purchase later with XP when a skill rises to 3 dots.

    Questions
    * May you purchase more than one specialty when reaching three or more dots.
    * If not may you purchase another specialty when reaching 3, 4, and 5 dots.
    * Does a specialty grant a +1 enhancement on the skill it ties to (Athletics, Swimming +1)
    * Does it grant a +1 enchancement to other related skills (Athletics, Body Building, info gathering in a gym +1)
    * Does it grant both
    * Does it vary per system (Scion, Trinity, etc..)

    Thank you

    Additional question on Skill Tricks please.

    Can they be gained during character creation for free or only purchased afterwards.

    Thank you

      You get one for free at character creation if you have a skill at 3+ dots. If you have more than one skill at 3+ dots you still only get one skill trick. Afterwards, purchase through XP.

        On the questions:

        * You can purchase 1 Speciality at 3 dots, a second at 4 dots and a third at 5 dots, so you can have up to 3 Specialities at a single skill if have enough dots.
        * See above
        * No bonus on the skill itself
        * Just on related uses of other skills (good example)
        * No
        * Yes, actually my answers are all about TC.

        On Skill Tricks:
        You get 1 single skill trick in one single skill that is at rank 3 or more.
        You need to purchase any additional skill trick with XP.

          Just have to add that Specialties give access to some uses of skills that are not common. For example, to pilot some unusual vehicles, like the Space Shuttle, the character may need an speciality related to it, or to create some items the character need to have a specialty on a specific area of knowledge.

          It’s not clear if this would allow the enhancements and the additional use, I would say yes.

          And it’s not clear if the specialty must be on the specific skill in use to allow the use or a related skill can be enough, for example to pilot a Space Shuttle you need be specialist in space Shuttle (on Pilot skill) or if you can do it if you have specialty in space crafts (on science skill). My guess is you can use any related specialty for that.
