Sins And Sin Checks


When making a legal purchase, you have to attach a SIN number to the item. This shall be noted on the voucher by the GM that handles the equipment queue for you.

If you are using a Real SIN no test is needed, but you better take good care of the gear, because if its used on a crime, that's evidence against you. If buying legally with a fake SIN, a test shall be done following the table below:

Value Credstick Check Rating
1-5,000 =Y= 2
5,001 - 20,000 =Y= 4
20,001 - 200,000 =Y= 6
200,001 - 500,000 =Y= 8
500,001 =Y= + 10

Credstick Check

First the player tests his SIN rating against a TN equal to the Credstick Check Rating, then he does the return test. Using an amount of dice equal to the check rating agsint a TN equal to his SIN rating.
