As the title sez, since I know my PCs are gonna ask, 😉
Why can't a character learn both types of spells?

They CAN learn both types of spells, as long as they meet the minimum attribute requirements. It's not even that difficult. See the table 3.8.5 Magical Aptitude on p. 30.

Aha! I misinterpreted the text in 12.2.1
"Characters who qualify..." to mean a PC couldn't do both. 😮
Thanks again! One of my PCs will be quite happy about this! 😉

Resurrecting an old thread to keep this discussion in one place:
I'm confused by the statement in the book: "Characters who qualify individually for Ritual and Psychic magic, but not for both, must choose to be trained in one or the other." No one can meet this statement. If you qualify individually for the two types, you automatically qualify for both. I've just been using what the chart says (INTL of 10 and PSYC of 8 as minimums if you want to do both), but wanted to make sure there's nothing I'm missing.

"If you qualify individually for the two types, you automatically qualify for both."

You are correct! There was a point during the design where that was possible, but apparently we changed it without removing the caveat. We'll add that to the Errata page. Thanks for the correction!
