These serve as the basis for a character’s Power. Each Lynchpin creates a maximum reserve of Power. Every time a lynchpin is removed, it both removes an amount of Power equal to its rating and reduces the maximum Power available. It is the things that are vital to your agenda.

Should the front collapse, however, that Agenda loses 3 Power points and 3 Maximum Power.
