Re: Experience Points

Of course an elf could start at DX 18 and end up with a 26.

Re: Experience Points

What if each attribute point just cost 1000 EP with talent points also at a fixed cost? Then it would be a lot easier to tune the experience system.

Re: Experience Points

I have to whole-heartedly agree with you on that.

In fact, a brief reminder, for those in need a refresher, can be found on the product description of The Fantasy Trip, easily located on the back...

Re: Experience Points

I think the whole group should get XP if one character foolishly endangers or seriously inconveniences the group it (this is what I do in my role playing system). Negative story twists can be far...

Re: Experience Points

Will there be talents and spells enough to fill that 16, 20, or 30 session gap so players can feel some kind of progress? Of course buying talents or spells will stretch the time out farther. [EDIT...

Re: Experience Points

My problem with that kind of reward system is that we would always forget things like that and then remember at some point and go back to figure out how many we rolls we forgot to record exp for. It...

Re: Experience Points

David nails it. The XP system slows down the fun of combat with record keeping and yet punishes those whose role is support. For example, the tank that manages to keep your wizard alive by block...

Re: Experience Points

The RAW also exponentially increases the required EP for advancement which I always thought took that into account.

I do like your idea of threat values though and it seems to me that scaling the...

Re: Experience Points

Wizards with IQ 16 and up would most likely raise their staff's mana to double their IQ, since Steve's current staff rules allow that.

Re: Experience Points

I'm seriously hoping Steve will run with my suggestion to break the hard link between talents and IQ. I think talents should only depend on one attribute, so Fencing would become a DX talent and...

Re: Experience Points

Personally, I'm hoping for a ton of new talents and spells so that characters can still have the option of steady progression when their attributes get high. I think there's a LOT of room for more...

Re: Talent (or advantage) needed for spell casting.

That talent would seem to allow a hero character to "become a wizard" later in life.

Isn't that a significant departure from the hero/wizard distinction, which freezes your choice at the point of...

Re: Experience Points

Shouldn't the staff stat cost the same EP to advance as any other stat?

Re: Experience Points

I think Fritz (our main GM) started awarding EP when it "felt right" and we just stuck with that -- kind of similar to GURPS.

I really like the character point system in the house rules on...
