[Disclaimer: I only own the German rule book, so my nomenclature might be a bit off.]
During Shadowrun 5e character creation one can buy advantageous traits using karma (or get karma from disadvantageous ones).
One trait is called exceptional attribute (or something similar). The description states that this trait allows characters to raise the max of one of their attributes by one, i.e. normally from a six to a seven. The wording of the German edition is fairly ambiguous however...
- Does the trait raise just the maximum value of the attribute? (I.e. "Exceptional Strength" on a STR of 6 would still result in having STR 6 with the option of raising STR later), or
- Does the trait raise the maximum of the attribute and the attributes value (I.e. "Exceptional Strength" on a STR of 6 would result in STR 7, period.)
