When one of the players decides to start a conflict during the players’ turn by paying a mark or with his free test, can the other players participate in that conflict for free to help the other player, or do they have to spend a check to get involved?
I know that if another character starts a conflict against you you don’t have to pay, but in case you want to participate in a conflict on the side of the mouse that spends the mark to start the conflict, do you have to pay as well?
If you can participate for free, do you also bind yourself to the twists and conditions that may arise in the compromises?
I hope I have explained myself well.
Lately I am finding too many holes in the rulebook during my games.
