Protosal “Jack of all Trades”

Enact a new dynastic rule, entitled “Jack of all Trades”

If an earthling has level of two or more in all skills, excluding such skills as he may not legally attain (such as cooking for Robots or bending for Organisms) he may declare victory

Any fixes to make?

Seems okay, although we should tighten up the Learning rules first, given that there was some disagreement over interpretation - I’ll do that now.

This subverts the corporation-based gameplay being introduced.

Not entirely - you need to obtain Study Passes and Upgrade Disks to increase your skills, and the only way to get those is as part of a Corporation. A well-oiled Corporation would enable one of its members to reach this victory condition ahead of a disorganised rival, or a lone unemployed Earthling.

It does to an extent, in that it’s a bit of an individual victory rather than a corporate one.
