I know this is a bit out dated. I have actually been meaning to send it for
a while.

Human Contact
Name: The Teacher
Info: Turn runner with one or less skill. Pay one yen. Roll a D6 to receive
a skill of your choice. 1: You stupid idiot, even a skillsoft wouldn't help.
Never come back.
2-3: Skill is useable for this turn only. 4-5: You learn the skill till the
end of the game, but you must roll D6 each time skill is used (1-4: Runner
doesn't remember the skill. 5-6: No problemo!) 6: Wow you catch on quick.
Runner can use skill until end of game.

I decided not to be a runner and instead a contact. If you haven't guessed
yet I am an actual teacher. I teach eighth grade science. The wordiness is
because I love to talk. All the die rolls are there because everyone learns
differently. The low cost well that's because I am underpayed (I work in
North Carolina). The reason why the runner may or may not learn their skill;
how much paying attention did you do in the eighth grade. I didn't think so.

Comment are welcome though often ignored.
