Can equipment increase a skill past 5?

For Example:
* Character has Strength 5.
* Character equips a Corellian Powersuit Armour & Helmet.

Does the character now have Strength 6?

No. The skill benefits in descriptions were just a placeholder idea for what they could do. The more recent thoughts I've seen on it is that they will merely modify the relevant equations, rather than boost the skills. So 5 will be the maximum ever.

Just curious: Does it say in the Guide anywhere that skills top out at 5?

I've looked through the Skills section, and there's nothing there that references a maximum limit, nor for that matter in the Building Your Character section.

if 5 is the max, then perhaps that should be added to the Guide in the relevant section(s).

Just my 2 decacredits worth.

Its in the rules. The Guide did have a lot of stuff added, but then we had various accounts trash the place, and not many people have had the heart to re-do it.

Thanks, Ellias. I see it now in the Rules, under Character Creation.

It likely should be in the Guide, since I spent lots of time there upon first entering, and only recently have I taken to exploring the Rules.
