I’m counting eight mood changes from AG. Am I missing something? What’s going on?

Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s not okay. I think he misread the rule to say you can only change each other Gostak’s mood often - not that you can only make a mood change often which I believe was teh intent of the rule.

I doubt he did it on purpose, but yeah, those are definitely illegal actions…

>A Gostak may change the Mood of one other Gostak often by one value toward Ecstatic or by one value toward Depressed.

I read that as once per Gostak per day. Reading it again, it still reads that way to me.

Do you read ‘one other’ to be an article of speech denoting another player, or a numerical quantity?
