All characters in G.H.O.S.T. Squad begin with 2 Contacts, and may gain more through the Connections Edge. One of these contacts must be the Joint Special Operation Command or JSOC which oversees the G.H.O.S.T. Squad organization.
During the course of the mission, a character may reach out twice to any contact he has, without needing to spend Resource Points, each time after this requires the expenditure of 1 Resource Point. The contact will provide the character a 1 point Perk without the expense of Resource Points, however, if the character wants a perk that has a higher cost, he must spend his Resource Points to cover the difference.
In addition, an Operator may use a Contact as explained in the Savage Worlds Deluxe rulebook, under the Connections Edge. Each success and raise on the Persuasion roll grants the character a temporary Resource Point that may be only used for this perk. As before, the character must pay in deficit for a favor from his Resource Points.
