On page 37, there's a somewhat awkward and clumsy approach to the effect of Kin on Reputation. It states that if a settlement is primarily composed of a different kin, then you suffer a two step reduction in Reputation. On the face of this, this might seem reasonable; after all, settlements are likely to respond more favourably to someone of the same kin. However, surely there's still just as good a chance that they've heard of you if you're famous/infamous regardless of kin (especially if you're a mixed kin party)? If this is indeed intended to get across the idea that different kin may not react quite so favorably to each other, I'd simply note that the various kin seldom treat famed members of different kin quite so well and do away with the mechanical modifier.
Doing away with the modifier for being a different kin also means that it it fits better with the approach to THE GROUP Reputation on the same page as well. After all, what if the individual with the highest Reputation score is a different kin to the settlement, but another member of the adventuring party is of the same kin as the settlement? It starts to get overly complex and opens up questions such as whether or not the two step penalty applies to only the rest of the group and not the member of the same kin, etc.
