My players have each bet 3 cred on the assassination mission they've taken, for a total of 9 cred.

During the legwork phase they decide to poison the target, so one of them hits the streets to buy a contact neurotoxin. Due to bad rolls, this is going to cost them 8 cred.

Does this cred come out of the cred they have leftover after the mission bet, or does it come out of the 9 cred they bet on the mission?

If it came out of the cred bet on the mission, does this affect the results of the get paid move at all?

Cred "bet" on your mission is gone; Sprawl p. 127

After someone has got the job (see Chapter 2: Basic Moves and Chapter 11: Missions), everyone stakes one, two or three points of Cred on the success of the mission. Cross that Cred off your playbook; it’s gone.

So any cred trying to buy gear after that comes out of what the characters have leftover after the mission "bet".

    \$\begingroup\$ Ouch, the example on p.128 really doesn't help with this. Everybody starts out with 5 Cred; some people stake 2 and have 3 to spend, and some people stake 3 and have 2 to spend, and it's super easy to get confused as to who has what. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yeah, each character should keep track of how many creds they have left and they've "bet" on the job - although I do that usually when running The Sprawl \$\endgroup\$
