The side of the map showing the City map also shows ten Faction tracks, one for each of the major factions in Agemonia. The ten Faction tracks are arranged in five pairs of rival factions. For example, House Gramask and House Pennark are rival factions. As you progress through your campaign you will gain reputation with one or more of these ten factions.
NOTE: Placing a reputation sticker is always optional when you gain a reputation with a faction.
Gaining Reputation with a Faction
Each time you gain a reputation with a faction, you may add a Reputation sticker to the leftmost empty space of the corresponding Faction track.
Whenever you place the 3rd, 5th, or 8th Reputation sticker on a Faction track during the City step, read the Story book entry shown on the space where the sticker is being added.
If you place a 3rd, 5th, or 8th Reputation sticker on a Faction track during the Journey or Scenario step, read the appropriate Story book entry at the start of the next City step.
Additionally, placing a 5th Reputation sticker on the same Faction track has two further effects:
» You gain the permanent benefit shown below the Faction track.
» You must place a Lock sticker on the leftmost empty space of the corresponding rival Faction track. You may no longer place Reputation stickers on that Faction track.
You gain a reputation with House Gramask. You main choose not to place a Reputation sticker on the House Gramask Reputation track, but you decide you will do.
This is the 5th Reputation sticker you have placed on the House Gramask Reputation track. You read 447 and then place a Lock sticker on the House Pennark Reputation track (the rival Reputation track).
You may no longer place Reputation stickers on the House Pennark Reputation track.
You now get the permanent benefit Helpful Assistant.
