I'm shocked* to hear that. It seems weirdly restrictive to have this perk (Cosm Adaptation) with such high requirements and narrow utility (just one group in one cosm), and then to say that on top of that, you basically can't even get the full benefit of "star" Perks.
If the design philosophy behind Torg Eternity was that acquiring perks from another cosm was a huge deal that should rarely happen, should be the culmination of many adventures, etc., I could see that. But recent ruling are that players can even start with perks from another cosm (they just have to have "I was transformed from that cosm" in their backstory), so it doesn't seem like that's the case.
* Not because it's written poorly; I apparently just read it wrong because I assumed it let the player purchase and use the Perk as a native. In other words, the writing is clear, but the effect seems underwhelming.
This is just for Race perks, AFAIK, and not all cosm perks.
