Hey all, I have some questions concerning the lifepaths that I just cannot find a concrete answer to. I posted this on the Modiphius Google+ page as well, but I figured I would post here just in case.
1. When making a character, what does it cost to take a iconic career as your third or forth career? The core book gives me the amount for other primary careers, but I cannot find the cost for the iconic careers.
I saw someone say that you choose a primary career to take if you fail, and that is the cost of taking a iconic career as the third or forth career phase, but the book says "If you fail the skill test, you may repeat your previous Primary Career as long as this would not take you beyond your fourth career phase.". Does this mean that the cost in LP for taking a iconic career in the third of forth career phase is equal to what it would cost to repeat the primary career you did before the iconic one?
2. Can someone take a Unemployed/Unemployed equivalent career a third time, just not gaining life points? I only ask because it says "You can choose to be Unemployed for up to two Primary Careers and regain one Life point each time."
3. When taking the Disciple (or other Unemployed) primary career, if the character has the Mystic talent already, could they use the talent from that career to buy and Art talent? I think I read something to that affect on the forums, but I figured I would ask here.
4. When buying a third career phase, you pay 1 LP for careers in columns A or B, and 2 for careers in columns C or D, but do you then have to pay the roll or choose costs on top of that? So if I want to choose for my third career phase to be a Academic, would I need to pay 4 LP? And what about repeating? If I already took Academic would I need to pay that much, or just the 2 LP for a career from column C? And with Unemployed, would it only be 1 LP to take that as a third/forth career phase, since it is from column A, or would I also have to pay 1 extra LP to choose it?
