Rune points during character creation

Recommended Posts

I have a question about Rune points. 

During character creation, step 6, when picking a cult, it states:" As an initiate, your adventurer starts play with 3 Rune
points dedicated to that cult. "

So do you lose 3 Power from your character for these 3 rune points? 

 the chapter on Rune magic states that you have to sacrifice a rune point for each rune point. 

p.313  "A cult member may sacrifice additional points of POW
to the deity, increasing the number of Rune points with the
deity and gaining greater access to cult special magic. The
sacrifice requires a full week of prayer and meditation in the
temple. At the end of the week, the adventurer sacrifices 1
or more POW points and gains an equal number of Rune
points. "

I'm confused.

The character creation system assumes you've been in the cult for a while. Recall you generated a personal history of a few years before you start "adventuring". So you'd have time to get those POW back. I think there is an option to start with a less experienced character, though, where you might start with less than 3 Rune points.

The assumption during character generation is that you've both spent and regained the POW already.

IIRC, there is also an explicit option to spend some of your rolled POW on more spells & a bigger Rune Pool...

In the character history - there are a couple of opportunities to receive a boon.  One of the potential boons in an extra RP.
