Under the Survivor O.C.C., the rules say that I can start a character's OCC skills at level 1D4 (1-4), to represent the time they did non-survivory things before the Wave hit. But all their other skills (elective and secondary) don't get that same boost. Say I roll a 4. Does that mean that for the purposes of calculating H.P., PPE and a few other things that are level-dependent, the character starts at level 4 or level 1? I assume the latter, and effectively some of their skills just get a bonus (rather than effectively starting at level 4 with most of their skills underlevelled).

The way I interpret the rules is that the Survivor OCC skills for said occupation are level 1-4. But everything else is level one.

I think that means if you become a level 15 survivor you have some level 18 skills?

i'd rule it as they are actually level 1 as far as stuff like Hitpoints, PPE, etc go. but their OCC skills get whatever % bonus they'd get for being the rolled level. so if the skill gets +5% per level, and you rolled a 4, you'd add a +15% bonus.

if you roll a 1, no bonus.

What I think was intended is this: Survivors did things before the Wave and thus ought to have some skills be more developed than others. Those OCC skills should be started at level 4, while the player starts at level 1. However, until the player is level 4, those "over-developed" skills won't grow. When they become level 5, they begin to grow again. This is just to represent the growth a character had pre-wave.

I don't see why they wouldn't keep getting better at what they already knew; a lot of those skills are probably still being used, especially and combat skills
