I'm reading the description of the Tithed talent on pg. 249 of the rulebook, but I don't understand what it's supposed to do. The Brother trait above it is pretty clear, but Tithed is described as follows:
"Tithed characters may make Persuasion tests as outlined above at Difficulty 1.....Characters with Tithed cannot make tests to acquire weapons, ammo, or armour."
I'm struggling to understand what this means, as the Brother talent says "If attempting to obtain items from a character’s Career, and supplies such as Reloads, Coagulant, and Parts, the test is Average D1."
Best I can tell, wen you take the Tithed talent, you are losing 1 pt of Earnings Rating in exchange for the Brotherhood procuring you free Career related supplies other than weapons, ammo, and armour. Is this correct? If I'm a Technician, does this mean the Brotherhood will give me free parts? If I'm a medic, do I get free medkits? If I'm a taxi driver, will they get me a car? I'm not really sure how this ability would benefit the average player, how it should be limited, and why the Brotherhood would be in the business of giving away work-tools like some sort of industrial Oprah Winfrey. I've got to be misunderstanding this somehow. Anyone got a better understanding on this rule?
