It's for the Negotiator concept (on p37).
Our Agitator character choose Lie Detector (CYB) as her talent. I said that meant that when we got to the gear section, she had to take the tabula at gear line 1 and that at line 4:
she had to take the Lie Detector and couldn't take the language unit, since it's either or and she had to take the Lie Detector (as that was her talent).Lie Detector (CYB) or language unit
HOWEVER, one of the other players (more experienced in the game then I am) told me that in this instance, she should get the Lie Detector for free (since it's tied to the talent), and that since it's free, she should get the language unit, too...
I was adamant that this was not the case and we moved on, but I promised to clarify.
So did I do the right thing, or should the Agitator have started with 6 items of equipment (both items from line 4)?
