If one adventurer has a robust resources score, can he pay for the others when they leave town? I don’t mean help (http://www.burningwheel.com/forum/showthread.php?13859-Helping-with-Resources-amp-Circles&highlight=Town) but making the test to settle the bills.
I think helping is all that is allowed. Perhaps you could combine two (or more) lifestyle costs together and have one person make the resource check - but i’m not sure if that is intended either.
“Paying someone’s debts” is considered help in this case. You can’t help it if your friend is a dead beat.
The idea is that when leaving town, your Resources are tied up in your own affairs.
You can donate treasure, though! That’s how we would do it in our games. Save some treasure for when you’re leaving town.
I suspected as much! Thanks Gents, I shall proceed to disappoint my players
