    Ah just commenting on the 2 extra knacks at the end of character creation that Eddy missed, just noting that it isnt the only thing that you can pick, you can choose to pick 2 extra knacks or you could have 4 dots of Birthrights though I don’t actually think Birthrights get rules in Origin so yeah the 2 knacks are probably easier. Just throwing this out there for anyone listening
