I'm a geek, a role-player and a biker.

I work for Diamond Light Source, developing open source scientific software for the UK national synchrotron facility. In the past I have worked in the robotics, mechatronics and laser micro-machining industries.

comment How can I implement multiclassing?
The first rank in Rogue Trader is 5,000xp (0xp in Dark Heresy, 7-8,000xp in Black Crusade and 13,000xp in Deathwatch), so other Rogue Trader characters would be at Rank 3 by the time the multi-class character gained their first Rank in their second career. So those first 10 sessions or so would show no character development while the character accumulated the requisite XP and then BAM everything all at once. You would obviously not let characters take the same advance from both classes, but it would probably be unbalancing to let them chose which career to take advances from too.

We haven't house ruled PeIm spells, but we do rigorously enforce the 'number of senses' affected. Just perdoing sight is dangerous when people and critters have other senses they can target with.

That's Ok, your answer prompted me to add a little more detail to my question. Thanks for your time and sorry for wasting it.

Sorry @Magician, I should have been explicit about edition. I specifically didn't select the ars-magica-5 tag as we are playing ArsM4, for which there isn't a tag. Note that in 4th ed, this would be a Level 20 spell. (CrMe10:Eye/Sun/Ind > CrMe20:Sight/Mom>Ind)
