Can you chain mnemonic editors together to undo multiple levels?


Rules Questions


Mostly asking for SFS, where a fame purchase lets you use the editor far more easily than a lower level character paying cash.

If you're level 4, can you buy the MK 1 and MK 2 editors and redo your levels all the way back to 1? I have a first level feat I'm going to want to ditch.


We had a player with a similar problem at our location. After much discussion my VC and I ruled yes. Hope that helps.

Yah I don’t see why not. Technically I would allow a nk 1-2-3-4 ect to be used all at once. However the rules stand. That becomes permanent, you would need to find the next mk x that you need in sequence. Of course the combined cost would be a factor too. Such a procedure would be traumatic and potentially life threatening, a good opportunity for a gm to throw in some good role playing.


Could go either way. The item level and price might be a way to prevent a person from rebuilding a character from scratch, by forcing you to keep your lower level choices.

That said, I'd allow this, because +cool points and I don't like artificially gating player choice 'just because.'

If you use a mnemonic editor, you can undo 2 character levels’ worth of decisions about which class levels you took, which feats you selected, how you applied any level-based increases to ability scores, how you assigned new skill ranks, and so on. All decisions you made as a result of advancing over the previous 2 character levels you gained are undone. You then make new selections, including new class levels, feats, skills, and the like, as if you had regained the 2 missing character levels. Go through the normal process of advancing your character through each of these 2 levels.

You UNDO DECISIONS, not levels. If you're level 5 and use the mnemonic editor you undo all the decisions of level 4 and 5, if you use it again you're still just undoing all the decisions of level 4 and 5.

*cough* If your players actually have good reason to even consider chaining together mnemonic editors, you really just need to have a talk about redoing the PCs.

Not really. It could be that they only want to change one thing, but it's one thing from more than two levels ago.

"I wish I took weapon focus with heavy weapons, instead of longarms. If only I'd known gunner harnesses would exist someday!"

Thats pretty much my exact situation
