Question on Ability and Influence Refreshes

Post by Tyler Sprague on Wed Jan 25, 2012 7:01 pm

Is there a reason influences refresh at the end of a game session while abilities refresh at the beginning?

You pose a good question.

We've been running that Abilities refresh daily with Heartland Alliance. It seems as though this would actually be a house rule according to page 78 of Laws of the Wyld Revised. We will be reviewing this internally and will make a clarifying statement as the Ability Refresh Rate may change to reflect what the book states, not what is traditionally ran.

In regards to the Influence Trait Spend, please refer to page 100 of Laws of the Wyld Revised (4th Paragraph). It states that you expend temporary traits. However unlike other portions of the book it does not advise when the ability actually comes back into play.

Dark Epics (page 69) advise that Influence Traits spent on endeavors return at the beginning of the month after they are spent. This is read and interpreted in the context that all actions, not just the specialty ones outlined in Dark Epics, are considered 'endeavors' since LotW:R states you are expending temporary levels.

So...that's something else we'll be discussing. I personally like giving full influence capability in downtime to players during each 2 week stint. I'll keep you updated.
