What is the advantage/disadvantage?
Fame = Extra pop = extra income
0 looks nicer than a random number
So if it has alot more advantages then why the hell start with 0?
You remove yourself as a fame farm target (meaning, no one will go out of their way to conduct ops / cast spells on you, outside of war)
more useful, i'd say, if you reset halfway through age, but since we get reset bonuses and size, useless then too.
iirc chonka disliked the fame aspect of the game so I think he always went 0 on start. The only person I ever saw use it.
zero, is a counter dick move to those who only hit targets in order to gain fame
