I've been meaning to share this for awhile, and I keep forgetting.

No OCC in N&SS can take RPG Design, the Technical skill. (Mystic China OCCs can get this, so that's no fun.) It's +1 to PE and could be a good work-your-own-hours job. But it's not listed as a Secondary skill and no skill program that allows characters to pick a Technical skill. Am I missing anything?

(Yes, I'm aware it's probably Erick's joke.)

I think you hit on the only one (that does not have prerequisites) that is ….difficult to acquire.

I say what the classes are even if some books have mislabeled them as something else. So get over it.

Mostly I write out exactly what I mean, then sometimes get even more finicky.

Comment: Palladium Books Canon is set solely by Kevin Siembieda, either in person, or by his approval of published material.

As I recall they came right out and SAID that it was a joke at some point.
I can't recall where (I want to say the open house but I can't swear to it)

Yes, eventually it was made available when Mystic China came out.
And sure if your a Megaversalist its easy since you just treat N&SS as a source book for the other games.

But mainly its just a tongue in cheek joke poking fun at the RPG industry.

I think a Mystic China OCC could take it multiple times to get a higher PE bonus.

Unless a skill says it can be taken multiple times it can only be taken once.
