Jobs

Your Role is what Nanotrasen has hired you to do aboard the space station, the NSS Cyberiad. It defines what equipment you start with, your ID card access, and what your duties are aboard the station. From roaming around as a lowly civilian to grilling up burgers as a chef, or even fighting off Syndicate agents as a member of security, there is always something to do.

While aboard the NSS Cyberiad you are also likely to encounter some interesting new species working alongside you.

Initiative required ranks how much initiative you need to take to have a fun round. A low initiative role will have things happen to them which will keep them busy. A high ranking means you need to start projects and take initiative to have a good round. The rank is based on an average round. Some rounds will be hectic, even for high initiative roles.

Mechanical Difficulty defines how difficult the role is to play from a mechanical standpoint. A high ranking means it will be difficult or a lot of different information and skills will be involved. Low means it's easy to pick up.
