Friends, Buddies, and Contract
This is roughly, based on the Shadowrun Buddy System, so I believe
I'll implement it as an alternate to whatever D20 isn't doing until
they improve the process.
This is to be completed after T20 character generation and ship
Based on how many credits you have remaining that you'd like to use.
The Commonwealth Campaign
Population growth in the Commonwealth has been extremely high. It's not
unusual to come from 5 siblings or more.
Unless specified by the player, everyone knows someone, or has family
and friends. The less you have the more of a loner or drifter you've
become. Or there has been unfortunate tragedy in your past.
Generally, NPCs met from beginning of play are possible "new" contacts.
Friends, Buddies, and Contract have levels and careers too.
1. Select the Contact Type you want.
2. Determine there level: NPC level = credits * level wanted
3. Select their career type or leave it up to the ref.
