Allowance

This asset determines the wealth of a character’s family and their weekly spending money. Not everyone has a family capable of providing a generous allowance, and even the filthy rich are forced to “live on a budget” by their benefactors. Players also receive a number of personal items, up to a certain value determined by their Wealth rating. These items may only be converted into cash during the game via game pawn shops, and provide only a quarter of their original value to the character. Like stolen cars, any car purchased with cash will be lost or destroyed before the end of the current game session. Reliable cars can only be purchased for characters with the Driver’s License Asset.
