Throughout Spycraft 2.0, you’ll encounter two important terms related to level.
Career Level: This is the sum number of levels the character possesses in all his classes. It’s derived from his overall XP, and determines when generic level-dependent benefits are gained, as shown on Table: Level-Dependent Benefits. For instance, a character with 5 levels in Soldier, 1 level in Sniper, and 1 level in Triggerman has a Career Level of 7.
Class Level: This is the number of levels a character possesses in one particular class. For instance, a character with 5 levels in Soldier, 1 level in Sniper, and 1 level in Triggerman is considered to have a Soldier class level of 5, a Sniper class level of 1, and a Triggerman level of 1.
Special Note: Unless otherwise specified, when a class description mentions “class level,” it’s always referring to class levels in the class being described.
