How would you handle a PC who wants to acquire an asset during free play? To clarify why I am asking, despite the fact there is a downtime action designed to do this: “By default, the game is in free play. The characters talk to each other, they go places, they do things, they make rolls as needed.” [p.8]
This is actions during downtime which includes: Character Scenes, Actions & Consequences, Gather Information.
Disallowing came to mind, but felt a bit restrictive. So I have been assuming risks of:
* you upset them; lose this opportunity until the next downtime phase – but you could spend a downtime activity to acquire as usual
* you owe them a favor which will create an entanglement if you didn’t repay them from your payoff
but I am interested in opinions about these two I chose, and other ideas..
