|You put your all into your studies, staying up late, skipping hobbies and social engagements to get a few extra hours in each week; Dedicated Beats apply to Mental Traits. For each week of downtime (to a maximum number equal to your Willpower), you may take one use of a Studious Benefit. For each such instance taken, one future beat becomes a Dedicated Beat when it is awarded.|
