OK, here’s an interesting one. Using the Time Traveller’s Companion, a player asks for this:
He takes the ‘Scion of Gallifrey’ trait (P.183) (-1CP, -2SP) then ‘No TARDIS’ (p.32) (+2 SP) and wants a Vortex Manipulator (P. 69; zero cost gadget).
Is this legit? Can a Neo-Time Lord take the no TARDIS option?
Note the Bold Italics in this quote from the relevant section:
If the Gamemaster allows this, the character is created much like any normal Time Lord character. Instead of choosing a Chapter (see pg.31), however, the character is built by using the standard character creation process and taking the Scion of Gallifrey Trait (see the box to the right).
The character is built using the normal rules from the boxed set, not the special Time Lord rules from the TTC, so they don't get to choose a TARDIS. I could have possibly made that more clear, but there you have it.
Also, the Vortex Manipulator is 7 Story Points (see the bottom of pg.69).
