There are some character types such as Adeptus sororitas and certain Squad Mode abilities 'Last Stand' for Crimson Fists that use fate points. In the case of the Sisters of Battle to fuel Acts of Faith while in the case of the Crimson Fists the Squad Mode ability gives fate points.
Does anyone have any comments on how they handle these rules with NPCs. To clarify, I know you could give the touched by fates trait but that allows the NPCs to burn fate points and survive death which I think would generally be too much.
Do you simply give the appropriate NPCs 2 or 3 fate points they can spend but not burn or do you reserve fate points altogether for only the most special NPC elites?
To be hoenst I am really thinking about Adetpus sororitas here. They are meant to be a Chamber Militant of the Ordo Hereticus. As things stand, stacking them against the Deathwatch and Grey Knights is a bit unbalanced but if they routinely had access to Acts of Faith it would definitely even things up.
