I've got a question about learning from your burdens. The text says:

Happily for those carting Burdens around, they’re great learning experiences.
The first time in each session when anyone gains dice from a character’s
Burden, the character immediately gains a single Advancement.

This is true whether the Burden is applied by the character or an opponent, so
there’s even more reason to explore one’s weaknesses. It does, after all, make
one stronger.
Example: The previous example is the first time anyone’s taken advantage of
Carrow’s thigh wound, so Carrow gains a single Advancement. Even if the Burden
were Grave (and therefore granted Thorrow two dice for the attack), Carrow
would still only earn a single Advancement

(Emphasis mine.) My question is: if you have 2 burdens: can you get two advancements that session? Or is it 1 period?

The text looks like it's one, period, but I thought I'd check.

My understanding was the same as yours, primarily based off the assumption that players would only get 1-3 advancements per session.

The sentence is definitely ambiguous and should be clarified.

The intent is that it's once per Burden. I'll clarify.

This is clear in the Game Terms section BTW (page 66), but I'll mention it in the Burdens section as well.
