Cultures of Othonia cost 0 CCP
Like choosing your character's Race, choosing their Culture also has certain advantages that come with being a native. Any native of the main culture may take the Cultural Advantages, however, choosing a SubCulture gives you an alternative choice. If you are playing a member of a SubCulture, you must choose to take either the SubCultural Advantages or the main Cultural Advantages, you may not mix and match or take both sets of Advantages. You need not purchase these advantages at Character Creation, they may be purchased later with EXP if you wish.
