    The Trmadore has issues with several frameworks and packages due to overlapping skills. TW also has overlapping skills and the Psi-Operator dupes the Mr. Fix It edge.

    Example Trimadore Operator? Race has Repair d6, MARS Package has Repair d8.

    Classic RPG logic in this case would simply be take the higher...but then you "lose" two points of racial benefit.

    Is there a specific example race/IF combo from the TLPG we can use? That might work best for folks to visualize it.

    My suggestion for an answer is the following.

    Duplicate Traits & Edges
    If the character creation process a character receives the same benefit from multiple sources. Such as Race and Iconic framework providing the same edge, or Hero's Journey roll providing a skill the Race or Iconic Framework already have. The player and game master should work together and agree a an appropriate replacement. The replacement should be related to the nature of the original intent.
    Example if a character rolls a heroes Journey result for Stealth d6, and the characters race already had Stealth d6, the game master and player may agree Thievery d6 is an appropriate replacement.

    Any ideas how to clean this up while keeping it small enough to fit in a book?

    Yeah, I'm hoping this gets answered in the next version of the TLPG, because it's a common question. For my games, I would give the player +2 skill points in the relevant skill to replace the duplicate d6, but YMMV until we get an official answer.

    I had a similar question about Skills, if you have an IF that grants a skill at say d6 and a Race that grants the same skill, do the two stack?

    Ah, thanx.
    Don't have A&M, just the original SR books. I was just offering general advice.

    I was wondering about this too, though for an Altaran Mystic who gets Alertness twice.

    Yup (though, of course, Two-Gun Kid is out, because 'dem Psi-Slingers start with it anyway!)

    Whenever I bump into something like this, I ask the player to come up with replacements for the duplicate Edges. As long as they make sense, I approve them. I wouldn't let a player trade a duplicate Quick Edge for Killer Instinct, for example, but I wouldn't have an issue with them swapping in Fleet Footed (which would stack with the Quick-Flex's starting Pace bump), or perhaps Dodge or Free Runner, as Edges dealing with being quick in general.

    *quickflex psi-slinger...

    Also, what Val said. Probably just go with a themed replacement, like Two-Gun Kid, until an official answer/fix comes out.

    Currently, we don't know.
    Until PEGRoberson and his team clarify such interactions, the GM has to make something up.

    So both the Quickflex and the pis slinger get ambidex and quick as part of their build. What if someone makes a quickflex psi-stalker? Or any race/IF combo that duplicates edges.
Working...
