The Darkness Between Stars
During the course of play characters may experience or encounter horrible circumstances that rob them of their edge. Doubt and other influences settle over the character and cause them to endanger themselves and those around them. When these events occur you will be directed to draw from the Despair Deck of cards. These rules vary from the standard rules.
- You may try to remove the effects of the Despair once per day during your extended rest.
- A boon received from overcoming Despair will go away at the end of your next extended rest or 24 hours. Whichever comes first.
- Despair effects do not go away at the end of the day on their own. They can only be overcome with the removal mechanic.
