I’ll repeat what was stated just to make sure I’ve understood things correctly on my end.

==> max fatigue doesn’t affect initiative nor has any relationship with it (but current fatigue does).
     ==> so increasing max fatigue upon level up will NOT increase initiative.
==> equipments(weapons & armors) lowers initiative and max fatigue by the same amount.
     ==> in addition, the initiative penalty (caused by equipment) is NULLIFIED by the amount of extra max fatigue provided by backgrounds and/or traits.
     ==> e.g. a brother with Strong trait (+15 max fatigue) equips a Greataxe (-16 max fatigue, -16 initiative)
     ==> his initiative penalty = -16 +15 = -1 initiative

m(_ _)m Thank you, Jaffai the boss. Your answer is exactly what I wanted to know.

m(_ _)m Thank you, Daedalus. Your additional explanation solved my last doubt, which supplements Jaffai’s answer. This has made his very impressive answer to be perfect.

P.S.
Oh boy I’m excited by the new patch, but I have no time for it now! Gaiz please wait for me! Don’t leave me alone and progress too fast!
