Re: Biography Rules Quick Access
In order to make specialties more meaningful and useful, the RP Staff got together and created benefits for specializing in specific fields unlike before. These specialties, applied towards specific fields, allow one to use them better. Divided into 4 types ( Primary, Secondary, Apex and Extra ), members are able to have one of each on their bios. In special occasions, one can have multiple from one type but each Specialty can only be had once. The three current possible Specialty Paths one can take are laid out below:
2 Primary + 1 Secondary, in addition to 1 Extra AND 1 CFS specialties.
1 Primary + 2 Secondary, in addition to 1 Extra AND 1 CFS specialties.
1 Primary + 1 Secondary + 1 Unique, in addition to 1 Extra AND 1 CFS specialties.
Primary Specialties are your first and normal Specialty; every bio has one of this regardless of your layout type.
Secondary Specialties are extra enhancements in a field, sometimes coupled with your Primary for added strength/benefit, but is not required to be match.
A Unique Specialty can only be applied to a Specialty Class you already have a Primary or Secondary Specialty for. An example being Apex Warrior requiring any Taijutsu Class specialty first.
Extra Specialties apply towards the different Advanced Ninjutsu/ Universal Skills and require the user to have one of them before it can be chosen for their bio.
CFS Specialties are generally the perks associated with specializing in a single CFS. These perks vary based on the CFS approved for.
