I hate to nitpick, but we’re about to start a new campaign and I’m having some trouble reconciling two parts of the BE book on the scene economy. Pacing was an issue we had in the past and I don’t want to have to revisit it too much.
On p. 429 the basic scene economy rules say that you get 3 scenes per PC per maneuver. 1 Color, 1 Interstitial, and 1 Building/Conflict. OK, got it.
However on p. 403 it says that for a Two-Maneuver Session “Each player gets one or two scenes per maneuver in which his character is the primary focus.”
It also says that for a Single-Maneuver Session “Each player gets two or three scenes with his character.”
My current reading of this is that you don’t really get 3 scenes per maneuver. I’m sure there’s a simple answer, but I’m not sure how to reconcile all this.
Do you just sacrifice the number of scenes per maneuver to speed it up to fit in two maneuvers per session? If that’s the case, why is p. 429 so specific? And if I am to sacrifice the number scenes, how do they end up getting divided?
