A discipline is a package of abilities representing a (relatively) common professional specialisation. Disciplines do not normally provide abilities that would not otherwise be available to a character, but the cost of the Discipline will always be less than the cost of purchasing the component abilities separately; this reflects the benefits of following an approved and tested curriculum of study. Disciplines also normally provide a cost reduction on related abilities.
You may purchase a maximum of one Discipline plus one additional Discipline per 1000CP spent on your character.
It is possible to create a new Discipline for your character, but the GSM advises that such applications are likely to take longer to process than normal ability requests.
