Default Add 1 PT to established ST, or DX

My PC's are working hard with the elves. I want to give them 1 Point gain in ST and DX, but I can't get GCA 4 to NOT charge them.
This would be a free reward for a year's worth of intense training.
How do I modify their character sheets?

Thanks!

Why not just let their point totals increase and give them 30 xp?

Just create a new advantage, call it something like Elf Training, give it a 0 point cost, then edit the gives tag to include +1 to ST:ST, +1 to ST:DX and you should be grand.

Although, like Anthony suggests, they're now more effective characters, so showing the increase in point value seems to make sense.

You should keep characters' point totals accurate. To give them "free" character rewards while still keeping the point total correct, you can do the following:

With the character open, go to View > Campaign Log.

Click Add Entry, then select the new entry created.

Add the cost of the new attribute(s). For instance, the cost of +1 ST and +1 DX is 30, so add 30 to the Points Earned field for that entry. Give the entry a title and description, if desired, probably explaining why the entry gives you extra character points.

Increase the desired traits in this case, ST and DX. Now the character has received bonus character points and spent them, leaving them with the same number of bonus character points as before, but with increased stats and point total.

Otherwise, in GCA4, you can add the advantages "extra DX" or "Extra ST", and in the edit window for the advantages, add the "free" general modifier, which set the cost to 0.
