Thanks for all of this! I found the rules on the website to be especially illuminating. There are certain differences between the website and the Definitive that we’re key to understanding. Your responses have now solidified that. The Darkness Beneath is also very helpful
Another two part question, then: 4 adjectives are assigned at character creation. When those are bid on a challenge, they are effectively lost, correct? Meaning that when a player Fishes for adjectives at a location, those are likely to be different adjectives, correct?
Second part: I wonder about initial adjectives and their role in the core concept of a character. I’ve thought about literally refreshing these initial adjectives at locations and/or fishing for additional adjectives.
For example: Conan - Hyborean Warrior has an adjective “mighty” and spends it to slay Tulsa Doom. Fishing around he picks up a “radiant” sapphire. Conan no longer has “mighty” to bid in challenges?
