  1. This. Tithes make sense if applied to 'income' - stipends, harvests, contractual agreements (whether written or unwritten), debt interest, inheritances, lambs born in spring etc. From all these things the cult member may be able to declare a 'retained value' from which to pass on some of the gains. It doesn't make sense (outside a modern system finely tuned to close tax loopholes) to confuse tithing with things like gift-giving, which typically creates a reciprocal obligation of friendship, return gifts etc (is the cult also sharing in that obligation?).

But I believe these are scheduled for revision, upgrade and release in the Mythras line before too long. There are a bunch of rules material for Legend that will never appear in Mythras versions of the setting, at least without heavy modification, as the Mythras books are much more RAW friendly: SOC (social status) as a characteristic Rules for NPC reactio
  5. My copy doesn't and I wrote it... Mongoose lost the RQ licence shortly before publication of AoT - so it was last minute rebranded to Legend. I'd love to have a copy with the RQ logo on it, but sadly I don't.
