Chapter 3: Subsystems / Reputation

Reputations

Source Gamemastery Guide pg. 164
PCs generally start with a reputation of “ignored” with most groups, as most groups have never heard of them. If they are particularly famous or infamous among related groups, the PCs might start at a different reputation of your choice. The reputation is generalized to the whole group—an individual NPC can hold a different opinion.
