Sorry to repost if this has been asked before...
Question- 1) since ownership is lifetime- does it also transfer to next of kin when we die?
2) Star Options trade value-do they depreciate? For ex. 81,000 Star options now gets us 1week in WKOVR-N- will that always be the case?
Also, that same 81,000 Star Options gets us 1 week in St Johns as well ...will trading power diminish?

1.) Yes, ownership transfer to next of kin.

2.) Generally the number of StarOptions to go to a given existing resort will not change (although they did readjust St. John and Lagunamar recently because they were poorly valued originally). I don't think this is something very common. However, there's no guarantee that future resorts will not be worth more StarOptions than similar resorts of today.
