The wording of the merit in Hunter: the Vigil is ambiguous (along with the example.
In game terms, the character is considered to have the Contacts Merit (see p. 114 of the World of Darkness Rulebook) equal to her rating in Professional Training, in addition to the other benefits that later levels provide. Every time a hunter character gains a dot of Professional Training, the player must choose a subfield of the Profession for this portion of the Merit
If I have •• in professional training, do I have:
- One 'contact' merit at ••, with the more specific subfield (as per the example, the Police version goes and Federal Agents is chosen)
- Two 'contact' merits, one at • and one at •• (Police, and Feds respectively)
- Two 'contact' merits, both at •• (Police, and Feds)
Which is it?
