Absolutely. Context IS important. IMTU fighting people doesn't earn one generic XP. It earns you experience in that kind of fighting. Trav is a high tech setting. Skills in tech are time intensive to come by. Example: A relative of mine went into the USN Nuke power program in S.C. The Rate was MM Nuc. The training was over 24 months at 50-60 hours a week, class and lab and required homework Call that Engineering - 1 in Trav. More time in core class & lab time than a 4 year E.E. degree.

Want to increase that skill? Lots of time working in ship Engineer job AND training (time & some cost expended)

Treasure collecting is somewhat problematic sometimes. Lets say you are in a free trader and are attacked by a pirate corsair, your gunners destroy the corsair, and now the crew says, "lets collect their treasure!" The ships sensors depict an expanding cloud of debris where the pirate ship used to be. The ship's captain orders the crew to take the ship into the debris cloud. Some crew members don their vac suits and enter the airlock to go outside and collect the pirate's treasure. A bunch of objects bump into the ship's hull, a severed human head bounces off the bridge windshield. A sharp piece of metal punctures someone's vac suit as he flies into the debris cloud . Someone yells over the radio, "I got one!" As he holds a single gold coin in his gloved hand. The captain says, "look for more!" Someone screams over the radio, "my suit is punctured, I'm losing air!"

If he blows up a corsair pirate ship that attacked his scout ship in space, how many skill points is that worth? The rules aren't very clear on that.

Pffft. XP. Murder hobos for stats.




Go to the dojo instead.
