Default Re: Points per each Game Session? What is average or normal?

A while back my nephew would not try sweet potatoes. He had refused bribes. So I just said "I'm a picky eater too, a lot like you. But one time I tried sweet potatoes and now they're one of my favorites." Didn't even frame it as a request, but it convinced him to try them.

Adapt that to roleplaying as you see fit.

Thank you all for the advice and input.

I could not respond for almost the past week because I had a malfunctioning keyboard.
The space bar would not work and the letters 'd', 'f', 'L', and 'K' would not show up at all.
Have a game session coming up this Sunday.
I may have been giving too many points persession according to some of the responses.
Think for the last session I will do 3 points per player, and likely 4 points to the one that e-mails me a ship's log.

Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me....
