I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I just bought the game and I am very confused by the diagram on page 40. It claims that the shock gauges are attacked by other shock gauges, like helplessness being attacked by violence and isolation being attacked by helplessness. However, this seems to be contradicted by both the book's section on coercion and by the character sheets available on the game's website. What is this diagram trying to say? Is it correct at all?
Yep I made a new account just to come here and ask the same question. I have been looking through the book for somewhere else this is referenced with no luck. I may have missed it but I'm glad I'm not the only one.
In this thread (on another forum) the line developer seems to acknowledge that the diagram is wrong, and that players should rely on the character sheets and the disussion of coercion at the start of chapter 3.
Would've been swell if he had answered in the official forum, right?
