As I am now playing a Gnome, would it be ok if someone could explain the Activation Risk, Escalation Risk and Passive Meltdown Rating part of the Meltdown for Gnome Devices?

They are currently going through their final edit but we will have them for you before your first event. We can probably get them to you before you prelog for your first event.

You are welcome to view the discussion we had on the Gnome mechanics. Know that the discussion is closed, and things written there are subject to change for their final version.
