Notes

Most faction challenges require 10 successes before 3 failures to complete. Failing at a faction challenge causes an extraordinary complication in the relationship between the PCs and the faction. They might grow standoffish or hostile, or an external force might intervene, disrupting access to the group. The PCs can undertake quests to restore the status of a failed faction.

Benefits typically accrue according to the following scheme:

  • 2 successes: A representative of the group can join the party as a companion character.
  • 4 successes: Gain a minor benefit specific to that faction.
  • 6 successes: The faction representative can join the party as a full-fledged PC.
  • 8 successes: Upgrade the benefit gained at 4 successes, or gain an additional, major benefit.
  • 10 successes: You can no longer fail the faction challenge. The PCs are considered trusted members of the faction and can make decisions on the faction’s behalf. Faction forces will join the party in the final battle.
