According to the downtime rules, each day there is an upkeep phase, which contains a step called "Determine Capital Attrition".
Step 3—Determine Capital Attrition: For every 7 days you were away from the settlement (whether downtime days or normal days), reduce your Goods, Influence, Labor, and Magic by 1 each (minimum 0). This decrease represents spoilage, theft, allies moving on or having higher priorities, workers finding other employment, and so on.
Does that mean that every week away from the settlement all my capitals will be reduced by 1? Or does it mean that I will loose 1 capital of each on the 7th day, one on the 8th day... one on the 13th day, 2 on the 14th day... etc?
