For sure it's obvious there's a lot of difference between standard and NC, except that along first parts it makes non sense seeing what NC is. I don't know well enough the game, even less Co8 to be sure. Runs can feel different on many details because of various aspects, order of stuff done, skills of leader or in party, skills rolls, perhaps the party alignment start, more. So I wasn't sure until I saw the Burne reward of 100 in Standard for traders problem, and 50 like vanilla in NC. I wonder why, and if there's any list of changes between the two, but it's weird that's the point. But ok beside this reward I never saw of 100 but in Standard, I'm sure of nothing, it's just a feeling.
