Making a character

Post by Degren Brightforge on Sun Dec 20, 2015 1:49 pm

So, I'm mulliganing my character and I'm looking around at starting xp. I know there's the starting Xp, but there's also something about the AD giving Xp for concepts or something of the sort on the Epoch website. So, what are ALL the XP avenues available? Smile

To answer your first question: It says somewhere that when you submit a character backstory, the AD can award xp for creative and/or interesting character concepts.

You can also exchange CRPs for xp via 'doubling out' after events. AFAIK there is no way to directly exchange CRPs for xp at a set rate.

Right now, you probably have 52 exp. Considering you started with 40 and gained 12 from last event (You're doubled out automatically at your first event). If you just need a couple more xp for something you could also take a disadvantage with your mulligan for more xp.

That's where it was coming from! Thanks! I was doing my math and I couldnt figure out where my extra 10 pts was coming from. Disadvantage. So, when do we find out if we get the extra points from AD?

You would have to talk to Sharon about that, but I think it's rather unlikely to get any "bonus points," especially on your first character (when you're getting a 20XP bonus anyway; other new characters start at 20 instead of 40).

I think I remember asking her about the thing on the website, and she said she wasn't doing that. She may have said she was doing something else instead, but I don't remember.

The only ways to get xp are the 20 from character creation, taking disadvantages, what you earn from coming to game, and doubling out.

No CRPs for writing a backstory anymore? Deviating from the Toronto rulebook on that one?

CRP's have been given out for a backstory in the past; I can't say if that will continue or not going forward. However, we've mainly been talking about XP. And while you can use CRP's to double out (and thus get more XP), the two aren't entirely interchangeable. CPR's can be earned from all kinds of things, but sources of XP are very specific.

For people who started LARPing back in May of 2014 (like myself), how much XP is each event worth?

And could we come up with some kind of system to keep track of who has attended what events (which can be referred back to when people aren't such how much XP they have?_

That would be something Sharon would have to decide on. As for old XP, I think games from our first year gave 4XP each, with short events like Potato Day giving 2XP. When we moved to longer events this year, it switched to 6XP. But again, it would be best to work with Sharon to be certain what your XP total should be at; I can just give general reminders.

I just mulliganed my old character (Thaeren of Heart, Elven Fighter Mage), in Favour of Valerie The Huntress (aka Val Lore), a Female Human Hunter Fighter (aka heavy on life skills and basic fighting proficiency)
