Just looking through the expansion after picking it up and I have a question about the thugs inverting your reputation bonus that doesn't seem to be covered anywhere. What happens if you are at bottomed out reputation, where you aren't suposed to be able to interact at all anymore? can you just pick up thugs for free or can you just not pick them up at all?

A literal reading of the rules suggests you cannot recruit them, but it seems thematically backwards that they get easier and easier to pick up and then suddenly they won't join you at all. Anyway, anybody know?

Yeah, thugs like to hang around other badasses. But that doesn't mean they feel comfortable was mass-murderers or arsonists. X reputation means you can't recruit any units -- even thugs.

Yeah, X means they won't even let you into the part of town where the criminals hang out, and even the criminals think you're awful. THAT'S how much they hate you.

You can burn monasteries and the Thugs will think you are pretty cool, but not too many monasteries.

That's how I know what the answer is.
