I think you only get a pension if you spend 5+ terms in one career, rather than serving 5+ terms total.

Regarding searching for leads on salvageable wrecks, would Streetwise be useful?

The pension rules are left vague on purpose, so I wait for what the referee will say. The rule of 5+ terms, some careers excluded, is a start but still, Mongoose has it vague.

Fair enough. I'm more a CT man, and that colours my understanding. If MgT has purposely loosened things, fine. We're a decade on from CT's timeline too.

Retirement Pay
A character that leaves a service (Other than Scout, Rogue or Drifter) at the end of the 5th or later term of service is considered to have retired and receives retirement pay. This pension is paid at the beginning of each year, effective upon leaving the service, and may be collected at any class A or B starport.
Terms Pay
5 Cr. 10,000
6 Cr. 12,000
7 Cr. 14,000
8 Cr. 16,000
9+ +2,000 per term beyond 8

The Referee relays...

To me the rule seems to suggest that retirement pay comes from five terms spent with a particular service and is connected more to the service than to the number of total terms.

If you had competed five terms with a service you would only be getting Cr. 10,000 and that is paid out once per year rather than every month. You have to be at a class A or B starport to collect it as well.

I think a successful Streetwise roll would allow your character to identify a possible underground source of information, though it may not give you the information by itself. In other words you could use Streetwise to track down someone in the underground who would know about salvage and derelicts and they you would be able to speak with that person and attempt to convince them to give you this information.

This is The Reaper of Ships, over...

What is Lord Trellnor's social standing? I can't tell by his title. But as Gaden is a baron, there is a chance he outranks him and that could help with the whole son situation.

The Referee relays...

From Gaden's character history it would appear that he gained +2 Social standing as part of his mustering out benefits, and that this was where he obtained the social standing necessary to have a noble title.

Going with the titles of nobility in the Wiki (Since the core book is more limited) I would say that Gaden falls within the Baronet class in that he has no territory and given his history, his nobility is based on prestige/service rather than heredity or land ownership. Odds are he would not technically outrank Lord Trellnor as Trellnor is a landed noble. Trellnor would technically outrank Gaden in terms of nobility (He is a full baron), the truth is that he has no real authority outside of his granted territory and/or his ability to utilize his peer relationships.

Also, looking at Shuth's character sheet it would appear that he also has a title of nobility as a knight, but again he has no land/territory; it is primarily a title given due to his heredity or his service. Again it looks like you received +1 Soc during one of your terms which suggests that Shuth gained this title in recognition of his service.
