Re: Making Characters

We're doing an expansion of the Social Level system in the Companions that will address a lot of this. Lifestyle costs are just for personal stuff - food, clothing, accessorizing. If you have mounts, they have to be paid for separately. Servants likewise. Parties? You need a whole new budget sheet. ...

Re: 1879: assimilation of the Ryukyu Islands

Oh so very much so. And it plays into the themes of colonialism and cultural assimilation that the game world is dealing with. I'll let you in on a little bit from our plans for Japan, which are probably several years down the road, as we've got so many books already in the pipeline - the peasantry ...

Re: Professional Abilities (Journalist)

Not necessarily, but see the rules on Scandal on p164. It's all a matter of what delightful outrages Society decides to find amusing and what they find shocking. Haring off with a few ne'er-do-wells to set right an injustice could actually be seen as charity, although of a rather audacious sort. Hir...

Re: Professional Abilities (Journalist)

Income is before expenses. Yes, being an aristo is expensive. You only have so much cash, and yet you must maintain a proper household, keep the servants paid, put on the occasional party. Small wonder that the Aristocrat turns to adventuring as a way of maybe bringing in a bit of extra dosh. Managi...

Re: Professional Abilities (Journalist)

Professional Abilities are not gained until Journeyman Tier for any Profession. Sorry, we'll make that more clear in a future edition, and add it to the Errata. Anybody who wants to can wear a chatelaine. They're traditionally a feminine accessory, because trousers and belts have pockets and pouches...

1879 Product Line Errata

The 1879 Gamemaster's Guide left Christianne Benedict off of the Art credits. Christianne drew all of the illos for the Bestiary chapter. Our apologies.
