With or without the specialization it still a 12 skill talent, which is a 10 pointer

That's what I thought, but couldn't remember if the breakpoint was 12 or "more than 12".

Why didn't I think of specialisation? Social Climbing is the black art of making people think you and your protégés are good and your rivals are bad but has nothing to do with product marketing, organisation image nor war-time morale. Done.

That sounds okay. Pretty similar to one of my PC's "Rumourmongering".

Acrobatic Poise: Acrobatics, Body Sense, Climbing, Combat Art, Dancing, Erotic Art (DX only), Jumping, Light Walk, Running, Skating, Skiing, Stealth. Reaction bonus: unknown. 10 points/level.

I'm at a complete loss as to clearly defined reaction bonuses...

The name on this one is kinda iffy, but I haven't come up with a better one. I'm at a complete loss as to reaction bonuses, as well.
"Physical Sense of Self" or something?

Reaction Bonus: PE teachers and students, or anyone that's a fan of dance and ballet. ;)

Why would other spouses like you for being good at cheating?
