TRUST
So this is an ooc thread for showing how much trust our characters have. It would be a good idea to also write explanations. Keep in mind these can change over the course of a session, so I expect these posts to be edited often. I'll post McBride's in a minute as an example.

Matteus: 2
Seems alright, though a little too quiet. Comes prepared.

Sagadat: 1
Arrogant and rude, went out of his way to embarrass me in front of Spiegelmann.

Albert: 3
Knows a good car when he sees one, friendly enough, I've fought alongside Brits before and they're alright.

McBride: 1. I cannot figure you out--what the hell is your deal? (Maybe you're frightened of your superiors? I wonder why.) And don't think that remark about my political system went unnoticed!

Worthington-Smythe: 2. You seem a little too callow, a little too exuberant. Asking a German doctor what he has a doctorate in, in these times, is a grotesque misstep.

Gro▀fahne: 3. Gebildet, quiet. These are good things. I hope I can work with you. Thank you for the cigarette.

TRUST
McBride: 3
He's crude and brash, but he seems straightforward enough. Seems like he knows what he's about, and I like that.

Worthington-Smythe: 2
It's difficult for me to forgive the British murdering our civilians with firebombs, and he's flashy and pompous; I don't like that. But eh, he doesn't seem particularly awful as a person beyond that. I can work with him.

Petrov: 1
Being a filthy Soviet and a Communist is bad enough, but this boy doesn't seem like he knows how to handle himself at all.

Grossfahne - 3 - He's a doctor, an educated man. Our kind of person, even if we did fight against them in the war. Lets just hope he isn't into all that national socialist rubbish.

Petrov - 2 - Russians are a stoic lot, but reliable. They get the job done. This guy looks a bit too Chinese for my liking but he obviously had it bad during the war. He'll be ok.

McBride - 1 - Upstart Americans! Turn up late for the war and then think they deserve all the credit. Wait 20 years and do the same thing again. And worse he is Irish! Rebels the lot of them.

So now that everybody's got their Trust laid out, I'm gonna add the rules from the book about Moving Trust, with some added emphasis.

Moving Trust

At the end of any conflict, trust can be moved around, increased and decreased. In the post conflict situation, a character can increase the trust they have in any of the other character by 1 or they can decrease the trust they have in any of the other characters by any amount they choose.

If players wish to change the trust their character has in the other characters, they should declare that they are changing trust, but not actively say in which other characters they are changing it or by what amount. If the other players wish to change trust as well, then everyone should secretly write down what their changes are. Only once this has been done, can the changes be revealed.

Now, what this means is that the character may notice gradual changes in other characters' attitudes towards them. So at the next conflict, they may choose to change their trust in the other characters to represent their own change in attitude, increasing feelings of paranoia, closer bonds of friendship and so on.

Kill a lot of their own people in the process but ...

[By the end of the century the meaning of "shit" will change from "everything" to "nothing".]
