In the character sheet, I renamed it and moved it to the top of the list. Can anyone think of any reason NOT to do this? scratch

Well, I guess both Scholarship and Academics don't relate to Persuasion at all, so it's no different than before (I never understood what being well-versed in old history has to do with convincing people to kill somebody else than you. Like, 'the Romans wouldn't ever have thought of something like that!' or what?).
But most people will probably go 'huh?' when they spend their XP on the wrong feat because they just think 'oh, fourth in the row, that's the one I want'. Laughing It will definitely happen to me. I know I'm that careless sometimes. Smile

I just liked it because it better follows the PnP character sheet. Troika originally had it called Academics and I'm not sure why they changed it to Scholarship at the last moment. The internal game name is still Academics so changing it back took all of 2 seconds.

As I "see" it, Academics talks to "higher" education, as Scholarship is more like "global knowledge about everything" (what I call trivia). Academics must be learned in universities and with huge teachers, as scholarship can be learnt "on the field"...

Maybe it's a language problem too, Scholarship talks easier to the basic gamer than academics...

(I do think Persuation should be linked to Empathy... but empathy doesn't exist :-( )

It probably just depends on what part of the world you're from. A Scholarship in America is when an organization gives out free money so you can go to school. Academics are just courses of study, so in my meaning, the word Academics fits better, plus it's closer to PnP lore.
