Experience Points

Post  Storyteller on Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:35 pm

Each month players earn a certain number of experience points. XP points can be used to buy stuff for your character sheet (like skills, attributes, etc, not like cars or friends). To spend XP, please PM AST Jim with your request and a reason for what you have done to deserve the spend. Below are the rules of earning XP and the prices for XP buys.

How to Earn Experience:
Monthly Posts - 5 XP
Literary Posts - 0-2 XP per Literary Post*
Player recruitment - 5 XP per approved and active players (awarded once recruited player has entered active play for 3+ month)
Accomplishing a goal - 2 XP
Role Player nods - Variable per Shout Out*
Storyteller nods - 3 XP per person. Up to 2 people per month may be acknowledged
Backgrounds - Up to 15 XP (must be awarded before character leaves introductory scene)

Re: Experience Points

I am reviewing the award of experience for shout-outs and literary posts, with an eye towards reducing both.  Shout outs for anything other than exceptional roleplay will not see a corresponding experience award.  Literary posts will have experience awarded based upon quality of content and substance.  Both will be addressed on a subjective, case by case basis when XP is tallied.
