GCA Reference - Perks Window
Help Contents | Reference Contents | Child Windows

This window allows you to manage perks for your character. You can add new perks by selecting them in the Available Perks list on the left side, and then clicking the Add button in the middle of the window. You can also double-click on an available perk to add it immediately to the character.

If you select a perk in the Character Perks list on the right, you can remove it by clicking the Remove button in the middle of the window.

Near the bottom of the window, on the right side, there is a small group of buttons: the Edit button, a small button with a hammer & screwdriver, and an up/down button.

The Edit button will allow you to edit the currently selected item in the Character list. You can also call up the edit window by double clicking an item in the Character list.

The button with the hammer & screwdriver icon is the Modifiers button. It will call up the Modifiers window for the currently selected item directly. (Generally, you won’t apply modifiers to a perk.)

The up/down button allows you to adjust the level of the currently selected item. (Generally, you won’t be able to adjust levels for perks.)

At the top of the window is a drop-down list. This allows you to change the category of traits viewed in the window. The default, is always “All Categories.” If you change it to a different category, you’ll only see items belonging to that category in both columns.

At the bottom of the window is a long, thin button with an up-caret icon. This will open and close the description area at the bottom of the window. If an item in the Available list has a description included, it will be displayed here when you click on it.
