I'm a bit confused by Tier and Status for factions.
The magnitude table on p. 280 shows that Tier ranges from 0 to 6, but doesn't mention Status. p. 263 mentions improving status with a faction 'past 1' but doesn't clearly say whether the status starts at 0 or 1. There's nothing to say that Status can drop below 0, but I assume it can. Lastly, all the factions listed are at least Tier 1. Since a player crew can start with a quality of 0, can a Faction start at Tier 0?
So to summarise:
- What is the range of a Faction's tier? 1-6 or 0-6?
- What is starting status with a faction (if unadjusted by other choices like ship modules): 0 or 1?
- What is the range of Status? -6 to 6?
