NO RATING
UNAWARE
This is something other than having no ranks in a skill—this is a special level of ignorance. You haven’t the first clue about this skill. This level can only be achieved through a quality (like the Incompetent negative quality, p. 81), or maybe a character history explaining the deficiency. You can’t default the skill, and it never really occurs to you to even use it to solve your problems.
RATING 0
UNTRAINED
The default level of knowledge obtained through interaction with society and the Matrix. Though untrained, you have a general awareness of the skill, and occasionally may even be able to fake it.
RATING 1
BEGINNER
You have a little training about how it works, but not always why it works.
RATING 2
NOVICE
You’re a hobbyist, but not an enthusiast.
RATING 3
COMPETENT
You’re skilled at basic operations but struggle with complex operations and “tricks.”
RATING 4
PROFICIENT
You’re comfortable with what you do and perform well under normal pressures. Professional level for most jobs.
RATING 5
SKILLED
You know how to handle yourself in unfamiliar situations, and can get creative when solving problems.
RATING 6
PROFESSIONAL
You could easily sell your skills on the open market. This is the maximum skill level for starting player characters.
RATING 7
VETERAN
You’ve seen a lot of what the skill can do, and what it can’t. Other people ask you how to do it.
RATING 8
EXPERT
You are a highly sought-after talent. Corporations seek you out (or extract you from other corporations).
RATING 9
EXCEPTIONAL
Your name is synonymous with the skill. If you have multiple skills at this level, you’re lauded as exceptionally gifted.
RATING 10
ELITE
You are famous, even among the very best in your field.
RATING 11
LEGENDARY
You are a paragon to those trying to excel at your skill. Techniques are named after you.
RATING 12–13
APEX
You have reached the pinnacle of mortal achievement. This expertise represents the top 0.00001% of all practitioners in known history. The very highest rating, 13, can only be reached with the Aptitude quality (p. 72).
