The Generator Table includes all Generators except for Enemy (kill) or Being (Action).
This model has two parameters; Cost and Frequency.
  • 'Cost'
    • 'Free' refers to when the resource can be gained for without expending other resources.
    • 'Cost' describes the instances where a player will have to spend another resource in order to gain access to the resource.
  • ‘Frequency’ refers to how many times a player can use the generator:
    • ‘Once’ generators can be used only once, then disappear.
    • ‘Limited’ generators can be used a number of times before disappearing.
    • ‘Cooldown’ generators are inexhaustible, but have a cool-down after each use.
    • ‘Unlimited’ Generators are inexhaustible.
