Like Interests a character may devote their Effort towards them. Unlike Interests, these social and political causes are typically not relevant to the in-game resistance because their impact effects only the individual character and/or their closest family. Passions represent a necessary but selfish side of human endeavors.
Passions may become dangerous with poor leadership of the resistance because if too many individuals mind their own business and benefit themselves the resistance cannot flourish. However, they cannot be avoided because the values they represent have distinct bonuses and appeal to many.
Passions obey the following unique rules, unlike Interests.
- You may not devote Labor to them.
- You are the single contributor to your Passion's overall total.
- With the exception of Liberty, Passions do not have Influentials.
