This skill represents the characters familiarity with the popular cultures. It gives the character a chance of knowing about the local slang, social structure and possibly the general knowledge about local groups and their activities. As the character moves further away for the area he/she is familiar with the less of a chance the character, will have knowledge of that area. For every 100 miles away from his/her hometown there is a 2 to his/her BCS roll. (Optional) With a campaign set far into the future, the GM may make the Pre Ruin Culture skill more of a history or legendary skill. Making what little information is available for the Pre Ruin Era more of a myth, than the truth.
