In Burning wheel character creation you get a bunch of general skill points and a larger number of skill points to use on skills listed in lifepaths (I'll call these normal skill points).
The general skill points can be used to buy whatever skills one desires (limited by stock and setting).
I recall that normal skill points could be used to also buy arbitrary wises and foreign languages. Foreign languages worked this way in the revised edition, but work differently in the gold edition. I presume that arbitrary wises can't be bought with normal skill points in Gold, if they ever could, but would like confirmation.
Can one buy arbitrary wises with normal (as opposed to general) skill points in Burning wheel gold? What about revised?
