Just a quick question: starting Resources during character burning is all the resource points spent on property, reputations, and affiliations divided by 15, rounded down. Are reputations/affiliations derived from traits (that is, were not bought with resource points) factored into this?
I imagine that the answer is “no”, because resources ought to come from resource points, dammit! But I can easily see the argument that resources should be derived from all contributing factors. For example, born noble grants a 1D affiliations with nobility because of mark of privilege. Doesn’t it make sense that nobles ought to have a slight increase in their resources due to their background?
Anyway, how have you guys handled this? And would it break the game to use the extra affiliations/reputations?
(By the way, my character is five points shy of B2 resources, and if I were able to count my nobility affiliation, he would make it.)
