Experience and Advancement

Experience

Each time your character fulfills one of the following criteria, gain 1 XP. Certain criteria have limits: for example, you may only gain 1 XP for a Dramatic Failure in a scene.

  • If your character fulfills an Aspiration, gain 1 XP. At the end of the game session, replace the Aspiration. Choosing a new Aspiration is an excellent activity between games or to handle before the next game session.
  • Some rolls and powers may impart Conditions on your character. Each Condition has criteria for resolution, usually requiring a difficult choice for the character. If resolved, gain 1 XP. You may only gain 1 XP for a Condition in a given scene.
  • Once per scene, if you fail a roll, you may opt to take a Dramatic Failure instead. If you do so, gain 1 XP.
  • Certain Conditions can have you take an automatic failure as part of their resolutions; you may make these failures Dramatic and gain 2 XP.
  • If your character takes damage in one of her last (rightmost) Health boxes, gain 1 XP.
  • The Storyteller can choose to award XP for any exceptional example of roleplaying, tactics or character development. If this involves more than one character, all of them should receive XP.
  • Some Merits grant XP under certain conditions.
  • At the end of any game session, gain 1 XP.
