Campaign of the Month: April 2012
A table-top, pen and paper game is a commitment. We take that commitment seriously. When people do not show up, the game suffers. Real life happens, so we do not expect perfect attendance, but we do expect people to show up at least 75% of the time.
Attendance will be tracked. Here is how it benefits the players, and the system.
The goal is 75% on-time attendance, with on-time being within 10 minutes of start. The time period measured will be over 8 sessions. On-time & attending 1 point. Attending but late is 3/4 point. Points will be rounded up for reward earnings, so 6 1/2=7 for rewards, except for an 8. 7 3/4 will be counted as an 8, but 7 1/2 will be a 7.
These rules began with the session on August 6th, 2010.
The rules have been adjusted for the next 16 sessions (2 sets of 8 sessions each) starting 1/18/14, through the session on 8/16/14, and then adopted again for the next 4 sets of 8 sessions, running from 8/30/14. They are given below.
After each session we will vote for an MVP. Each MVP win gives the PC 1000 xp and an attendance point. If someone is a substitute GM for that night, they automatically get an MVP win. As of the games beginning on 1/3/15, the MVP gets 2500 xp!
Out of 8 sessions:
6 Attendance points: 1000 xp
7 Attendance points: 2500 xp
8 Attendance points: 12 Luck points plus 4000 xp. You must attend at least 7 out of 8 sessions to get the luck points.
Over 8 points- 1 luck point for each full point above 8- no rounding up, to a maximum of 16 luck points.
A Luck Point can be used to re-roll any single dice roll but that new result must be taken. The re-roll cannot be a 1-4 or 90-100, the worst it can be is a 5 or 89. Up to 3 luck points may be used per session.
Luck points must be used before the next attendance summary, in other words, before 8 sessions have passed.
Drama cards and luck points must be used before the next attendance summary, in other words, before 8 sessions have passed.
Attending only 4 out of 8 sessions (50%) will result in a warning. 2 50% or lower attendance warnings in a one year period will result in removal from the game, no group vote. Less than 4 out of 8 during one attendance period may result in immediate removal, pending a group vote. Attending only 5 out of 8 sessions (63%) twice in one year will result in a warning. One more 8 week period within that year with 5 or less will result in removal, group vote.
If you are not there the character will earn 1/2 xp. The person playing your character will earn 1/2 xp towards his own character’s xp (example Joe plays Zolo, his character, and Bobo, John’s character. Zolo gets his own xp, plus 1/2 of Bobo’s xp. Bobo gets 1/2 xp because John was not there.) The GM may pick any character to play another if none is specified… No person can play more than 2 PC’s in one night. The GM is the ultimate decider as to who plays whom.
