I got bored and was playing around with the character creation and went for manual creation. And for the template i chose a Devaronian which as you know has a Starfighter-Freighter Piloting: 2, so i go through the creation and in step 3(where you have to assign skill points) for the star fighter/freighter piloting i gave him a +4 which costs 6 points so i assign everything else and go to step 5
and it says
Skill Name Skill Level
Starfighter-Freighter Piloting 4
okay now my question is if this race already has 2 points in the beggining and i add another 4 skill points, how is it that it shows up as only 4? Is it added on later or am is my thinking wrong?
