their Parents are a strong controlling influence in their life. Purchasing
points in this attribute lets you determine some of the ways they can help you.
Characters without this attribute still have parents, they just can’t be counted
on for anything but punishment. Higher ratings inherit all benefits from the
1 point: Latch-Key. Your parents are out basically all of
the time, but will let you have friends over and can give you some money
2 points: Hard Workers. They may or may not understand
your evil life style, but at least they’re not around to get in your way.
They try to keep up with your affairs, can be counted on for helpful advice,
and can be counted on for the occasional ride.
3 points: Family Dinners. They give you plenty of space,
but your parents make sure to see you almost every day. Your parents can be
counted on for good advice, a shoulder to cry on, and to bail you out of
trouble when the need arises.
4 points: Influential. Not only do your parents have an
active interest in your education, but they go out of their way to see you
excel. They might be a little meddlesome, but they have your best interests
at heart. Your parents will be disappointed in you, but they can be counted
on to get you out of a sticky bind.
5 points: Powerful. Your parents are deeply respected in
area politics. One call from them will have the police bending over backwards
to earn their favor. They are definitely more into your business than you
care for, but there’s nothing you can do about it. They play a strong role in
your life, and will be featured prominently in the story.
