Ok...Can you sell me then with one statement why I should jump over to SC 3.0. (and don't just say it's better )
How about, "less skills to worry about, and overall a system that is less complex than SC2 without losing the core qualities that make it one of the most flexible and resilient engines in d20"?
It's the gear system I may or may not be able to sell you on. It's essentially Cash & Carry
+ a system for acquiring things that aren't normally sold with Reputation. You know how Resource and Gadget picks sort of drop off the planet with Cash & Carry
? All prime suspects for Reputation purchase, which means your players now have something to do
with their reputation.
How about 'the Gear chapter won't make your eyes bleed'?
Oh, come on. Only in the first printing did the Gear chapter make your eyes bleed (and your brain leak out your ears, and... no, Pat, we're never going to let you live that one down.
