Well, do you? When you set up?
The short answer is no.
However, ive considered using a a variant where players start with a small amount of corrupted quiddity. Mostly because my experience with the expansion has shown that it hasnt had much of an effect on the game. Players only seem to gain a hindering amount of corruption towards the end game. Not necessarily a bad thing, especially since adding corruption at the beginning will probably only serve to slow down the game, but it might rsult in more tactical culling choices. Just something to consider.
