Sixth World:

Playing another doctor character. I want the highest skill to be in Medicine, under Biotech. I would probably need to specialise, but can't find it in my book how to do that. I am taking the positive quality that allows one skill at 7.

The answer is on page 65 of the latest printing of the Core Book for Sixth World. It is in the last paragraph under the SKILL section.

Essentially a specialization costs the same as one rank of the skill.

so, feasibly, I could bought one rank of Biotech, and 7 ranks of medicine? (I didn't do that.) Sixth edition did away with skill groups, in a way, didn't it. I have Biotech, and medicine, but not first aid?

No. You buy the biotech skill up to 7 potentially, then for the cost of a skill rank get the specialization. This gives you the bonus dice as indicated for being specialized that add into the dice pool.

After game play you can purchase an expertise after you begin play. Check out page 92 for more details on how that all breaks down.

Oh! And here I thought that meant I had to buy the ranks separately. That tells me I have more points to go spend, since I took priority A in skills.

What did you spend originally to get the skill to that level?

Originally I spent 5 skill points in both Biotech and Medicine, then split and only continued with medicine to 7, costing 12 pts. But only have to spend 7 to get it to 7., not a point for every rank.
