So I need some help FFG,
I am about to start a campaign with some new players and theres a lot of them. 8 players on most days. Now for that many players each starts with 5 obligation. Now they can get ride of it, but they shouldn't. (Thats basically what the book says). Well I play on opening the campaign with the adventure in the back of the book and by then end of those 2 session (maybe 3) every gets to take off 5 obligation. Well Now I got 8 people with 0 obligation…OR they don't actually get to take off anything if I force them to keep it.
I already plan on only letting those who the Hutt have direct power over (like forgive ship cost debt) actually lower their obligation, and furthuremore some people need a favor done by the hutt (like help find their lost family) So thats an easy Yes I'll start the search for you family as part of our deal.
My question is, should I reduce all rates of obligation? I.E. only take of 2 points of obligation instead of 5? Sense everyone will only have a rating between 5-10?
Or do I just let many characters get ride of their obligation and encourage them to take (or assign them) more obligation for something else.
