When customizing characters, some players may want to get Conditions, not only Stunts, from other mantles. For example, in my campaign, I have a character with the Law Enforcement mantle that wanted the Third Eye condition.

Should he pay one Refresh for the Condition as he would for a new Stunt?

And what about more complex Conditions? For example, if someone wants to have Press Credentials from the Reporter Mantle, it seems it should come with Off the Air as well.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Would be both. Do you feel the cost should be different for creation and advancement? 🤔 \$\endgroup\$ Dec 13, 2019 at 21:15

You pay one refresh for conditions, another refresh for stunts -- and they're bought separately.

One of the odd things (to me) that I'm still adjusting to is that these purchases aren't 'standard' -- there's a specific milestone type where you can make them. Making out-of-mantle purchases is therefore an expensive tradeoff.
