Learning the Sorcery skill spontaneously and new DM stuff

There are things out there, in the weirder reaches of space-time where reality is an optional extra. Horrible things, usually with tentacles. Good thing there's a bureaucracy to deal with them.

Learning the Sorcery skill spontaneously and new DM stuff

In the rulebooks it mentions that you can learn the Sorcery skill when you reach 50% or 75% in some related skills and pass a check, but it doesn't say what your initial score in the skill is if you do. I have a player in my campaign (which is starting in a couple hours. No rush. Lack of preparation on my part does not constitute an emergency on yours etc.) that is playing a Type III Deep One hybrid and succeeded at the check when her Call of Deep taint passed 50 at character creation.

Also, is there anywhere that might have compiled a list of things that would be handy to have in front of me like what would be on a DM screen? Resistance roll table etc? We'll be playing over VOIP so I can just put it up on my second monitor if there's a website or something.

I did a small number of write ups for The Laundry and host them on my Google Drive at:

They cover Warding, spellcasting, a Necronomiphone, an OFCUT laptop and Thaumaturgy.
Some TOR Information on my G+ Drive.
