Title: Rules question: Divine Favor
Post by: Snoof on October 24, 2008, 11:57:27 PM
I've recently acquired a copy of Agon, and I really enjoy the philosophy behind the game; it's inspired me to run it in a way not many games do (it helps that I'm a massive Greek mythology fan). Anyway, I've been reading through the rules, and I couldn't figure out how Divine Favor works as a resource - when do you gain more? Do you start with seven dots, and get one more for each quest, so you've got a limited supply over the lifespan of your hero, or does it "refresh" to maximum at the beginning of each quest, and the bonus for completing quests boosts your maximum? Or is there some other answer?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Characters restore Divine Favor by sacrificing to their god in an Interlude scene--see pages 71-72.  I think that's what you're looking for.

Ah, of course. I can't believe I missed the line, "Win or lose, all your divine favor is restored." That makes much more sense. Thank you.
