Should we continue to give 3000 KS or the equivalent to new characters? It seems to be a point of confusion with first time players. My proposal: Eliminate the starting funds and replace it with a statement saying characters can start with a small number of inexpensive personal items. The character mods would determine if the personal items were reasonable. Lack of funds would be a motivator for characters to enlist. As a side note, Star Army could also use more things to spend money on. Compounding this is that fact that currently the big military forces pretty much cover all the characters' needs.
