    The way Legend works was one of the setting contradictions and ambiguities that I was talking about. Legend was ostensibly about the renown you achieved for your deeds, but you could accrue Legend even when you were acting in secret. When I ran the game, I rationalized it by saying that it wasn't about mortal fame so much as fulfilling your role per the demands of Fate. One could take it even a step more narrative and say that it's not about recognition by characters within the setting, but about the hypothetical audience-- after all, it wasn't Achilles' fellow soldiers that grew his legend, it...

    For me, the biggest thing is that "hidden world" settings are a lot less work for both the ST and the players.

    Related to the OP, it says on page 104 (second bullet point at the bottom of the page): "Any given skill can be associated with at most two of your paths." This rule is ignored in the example, which gives Little Mao Culture in all three of his Paths. It also contradicts the point that there might be overflow dots, as five dots is the most you can get from two paths.

    Edit: I just reread the middle section of this thread and realized this probably falls into the nitpicking category that has been discouraged. Sorry about that.
