So . . . the only way to earn a Check is through using your Traits, with an average player accumualting 1 or 2 (& possibly more) per GM Turn? Or am I completely mistaken and they can be earned some other way (ie - as a reward for doing something mind-blowingly stupendous, such as getting the moose to go away single-handedly)?
I only ask because after reading through the book (there is no index reference for Trait Checks by the way), and reading the q&a’s here, that to me the overall idea seems to be to not gain too many Checks. If so, it seems to a bit harsh for the players in return for all of their hard work in the GM Turn.
