How I will award XP - GDP_ST

All XP will be publicly awarded down below.  It will also be individually awarded.  There will be a minimum amount everyone gets for participating in a thread and group challenges overcome - and then addtional pts for creativity / clever RP/ entertaining dialogue / good drama and proactivity.

A short term Aspiration is worth 1XP if attained.  A long term Aspiration is worth 2XP.  PM me here or  in Discord if you believe it has been attained and I shall add it to the award for the session if I agree.

I will also be sometimes assigning projects: bonus XP will be awarded for these depending on how demanding they are and how well people engage.

When XP is awarded between sessions you may spend it at that time while between sessions. Once a new session begins you may not spend xp until the end of the session. DOTs and Edges  bought with XP may be used immediately beginning the next session, with a couple of exceptions. New Abilities and Skills bought between sessions can not be used until the end of the next session unless you spend a momentum to use that new attribute or skill.

TWEAKS 

1) Players may tweak their character sheets in the following ways. Shift one dot from one Attribute to another Attribute or from one Skill to another Skill. At the start of a new session, a player must announce
that he is going to do a dot shift and must mark on his character sheet the Skill or Attribute he plans to change. During that session, the player must roleplay using the Skill or Attribute he wishes to increase.
This can be as simple as creating a dice pool using the Skill or Attribute.
2 ) Write a new short-term Aspiration. At the start of each session, a player can set a new short-term Aspiration even if his character did not achieve his short-term Aspiration in the previous session.

one of your Short term aspirations should always be a Player goal or desire for the character to experience something and not a Character goal.

 

Important Note regarding XP Logs:

Have one.  Keep it handy - update the one you already have in PM with Nina, have a google doc, whatever you want to do, but have a log.  I don't want to see any of them at this stage - I'm not going to look over your shoulders and count beans on an abacus.  But I might want to check if I review a character sheet for some other purpose and have a 'hmm' moment.  Please, please be ready to display your papers on request. ;) 

Additionally, please also make sure your Yearbook thread entry and your Signature character sheets match up.  If they don't and it comes up during a dice-roll, I WILL  require you to use whichever sheet is worse.  I trust this will not be considered unfair, given that a warning has been issued. :D

SESSION I XP REWARD  - 8/02/2019

Everyone -  3 XP

you may add this to the Project XP you were rewarded and may spend XP now until I begin session II. If you intend to spend now do not put it off as I do not know exactly when I will start II, but it will be soon.

 

Talents - If anyone wishes to cement themselves as a talent at this time send me a PM. Do not feel rushed there will be additional moments (but not every session) where circumstances may allow a character to become a Talent. However it is something that if you are on the fence about you need to be thinking about it. When we get to the point where Psionic powers become active Characters will no longer be able to manifest as Talents.

SESSION II XP REWARD  - 8/21/2019

Everyone -  2 XP

you may add this to the Project XP  and any other bonus XP you were rewarded as well as to left over XP form the last XP segment. You may spend XP now up until I begin session III. If you intend to spend now do not put it off as I do not know exactly when I will start II, but it will be soon.

At this point I am once again offering the Talent Option. This will be the last time your character may become a talent. One this XP segment is closed Characters who have not chosen Talent as their weird will be locked in as Psi.

Bonus XP and personal story instructions will follow in PMs

Going into the next arc, I am awarding 1 dot in one of your character's existing Paths.  This can include Psion, which everyone (Except Cade) has at 0.  You cannot use this dot to take a new Path, however.  Enjoy.

For Project #5 so far, we have:

Cassandra (Salmonmax) - completed, 5 XP

Autumn (Vivi OOC) - completed, 5 XP

Sean (Sean) - completed, 5XP

Cade (Justin) - completed, 5XP
