Lucidity, Traumas, Derangements & Disorders

Let's talk about insanity! (Here's a thread for it).

First question: from Tim Cooper on our Facebook page...

I bought the game on a lark and I'm digging how it's grittier than a
box of gravel but I do have one mechanics question: getting four
traumas gets one disorder. Is this four traumas -total over the
character lifespan- (character gets trauma, gets over it, another
trauma, gets over it, rinse-and-repeat until the fourth trauma becomes
a disorder, but at any given point the character had one or fewer
traumas) or is it four concurrent traumas? I think it's four concurrent
since traumas need to be healed separate of derangements (which time
out), but I'm not certain.


Rob or Brian, if you're watching, any idea? I wasn't sure about this one.

Each time a character with a major derangement receives an additional trauma, the DM decides whether it will cause a new minor derangement, or upgrade the major derangement into a disorder, based on the circumstances.
