I agree that etiquette softs should be defined as one or the other, for
the sake of consistency. I have only pointed out that they can be defined
as both. Nightstalker has reiterated the question: which should they be?

Next week I'm going to take Shadowtech from the owning player and go through
everything in it. At the top of my list is enhanced articulation: Right
now I do not buy the relationship of somatic capability to social
interaction. Thus, in my campaign, Enhanced Articulation will not give
bonuses to social skills, and etiquette skillsofts will be knowsofts, rather
than activesofts. Etiquette softs will also require periodic uating.

Just so you know, the ruling from the old Ka.Ge Q&A page (which I believe
was answered by Tom Dowd) was that there is no base Etiquette skill. At
character Gen the first Etiquette bought had an extra 'bonus' point (to
reflect that Etiquette is a Concentration), however any further Etiquettes
bought wereat base cost.

Etiquette/Street: 5 (Initial cost only 4 points as first Etiquette skill)
Etiquette/Corp: 4 (Initial cost 4 points)
Etiquette/Media: 2 (Initial cost 2 points)
