Celebrities will climb up the Status ladder quickly. Players who are quick with wit, enjoy marketing activities, and are able to hold a crowd’s interest, may find this path best. Celebrities gain power of persuasion and can affect a wide range of people. But as quickly as celebrities can climb up the ladder, they can fall just as fast. Status also factors in image points. Whether a player is bad or good, fast or slow, the image he or she displays must be kept constant. Changes in image will reduce a player’s points. Celebrities may reduce the magnetism of a politician or other celebrities by creating rumors that detract from a player’s image.
Politicians have the most authority. They retain power in group settings, but they need celebrities to help their status. Although celebrity egos may make them think they have power, the politicians wield it. The policies, laws, and access to caves make politicians the most dangerous players in Status. The political path is governed by attributes of magnetism. Where celebrities focus on image, politicians must sway people to keep them motivated to do their bidding. They lead groups and are responsible for defensive as well as offensive tactics within their respective caves. Politicians may be unseated by stronger politicians who are not part of their cave. Politicians have been known to bring down celebrities by creating tasks that hinder the celebrity image, and they can bring down other politicians by initiating successful takeover.
