Character development

The player starts with 5000 experience points and Pistol skill level 1. Up to 26582 - 26607 additional experience points can be earned.

Exploit: during character creation, downgrade the Pistol skill to start with a total of 6575 points. When the game starts, Pistol is back at skill level 1, but the additional points remain.

The following minimum skill levels are recommended:

Total cost: 22125 experience points.

This leaves 9457 - 9482 experience points to be spent for other skills. Environmental Training and Medicine will probably not be needed, though.

The battle at Castle Clinton can be avoided by using the way through the secret facility to the kiosk at get the 40 experience points, then going back the same way and meeting with Anna. The scripted battle near the subway station can probably not be avoided.
