General Resource Rules

  • PCs start with 3 Resource Points
  • The maximum Resource Points a major clan samurai character can have is Insight rank + 4
  • The maximum Resource Points a minor clan samurai character can have is Insight rank + 3
  • The maximum Resource Points a monk or ronin character can have is Insight rank + 2
  • The maximum Resource Points a commoner (half man) can have is 5. They only ever get 1 die of RP renewal per season, except winter which is 0.
  • Non-men always have 1 RP.
  • When in your family or clan’s territory your Resource Points for purposes buying items is considered 1 higher.
  • If the item you want is below your Current Resource Points, you can get a reasonable number of those items without issue.
  • If the item cost is above your Current Resource Points, you must roll to see if you can buy it at that moment.
  • You roll 1k1 per Current Resource Point you have (non exploding)
  • The TN for these rolls is the item’s Resource Cost * 5
  • If you fail the roll, you may exhaust a resource point to increase your roll by +10.
  • Things that cost 0 RP never require a roll
  • The minimum RP a character can have is 1.

Regenerating Resources

At the start of every season you can consult the chart below to see how many dice you roll. These are exploding. The target number per regained resource is TN 5. Of course you cannot go above your maximum.
