Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, ZorValachan, Hi JohnK, Just a couple more thoughts. (You is a general "you - anyone", not a specific JohnK "you") 1. I also have seen (and sadly been part of as a player) the player-vs-player mentality when XP are earned individually. Even if the party -never- came to blow...

Re: Bare Hands/Claws as Trademark Weapons?

Hullo, Gargoyle, I totally agree with you that there should be something distinctive about the natural weapon if one is to make it a Trademark. Edeinos claws are easy to work with in that regard, as per your example, but I'm not sure it would be as easy to distinguish the Trademark weapon in terms o...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, utsukushi, OK, let me see if I can do as well as some of the other detailed examples we've had on here... Let's say four players are there at the beginning. They create: Brent the Beastlord - Living Land Attributes: Str 10, Dex 8, Mind 6, Spi 8, Cha 8 Skills: Beast Riding 3, Dodge 2, Intimida...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, fougerec, Thankfully my players are coming around and shedding those habits. They're not stripping the corpses of every opponent, they're not trying to sell that gear to the DC, they're getting better at spending Possibilities rather than hoarding but overall D&D has much to answer for. M...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, Kuildeous, Let me start this reply off by saying that I'm not going to discuss the merits, or lack thereof, in games and of games like D&D and/or Pathfinder. I will just say here that, while I'm not defending D&D and games like, it was one of the games (if not *the* game) that establi...

Re: Bare Hands/Claws as Trademark Weapons?

Hullo, fougerec, I think at least there should be something trademark/distinctive about it. "This claw mark has 4 claws where most Edeinos have 3, it's definitely the work of Sslak the Blessed" I think the fact that you can only have one Trademark Weapon balances out the cheese of claws/ba...

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, bchoinski, My group only gets to play about once a month due to all of our schedules, so I generally give 5 EXP per game session even if they dithered and it takes two sessions to actually finish out an act. My Wednesday night game plays once a month, too, so I know how that feels. They are m...

Hullo, ZorValachan,

ZorValachan wrote:That's exactly why i decided not to do it. 5 per act is nice. And since acts, even in a multi act adventure, are kinda story arcs, it fits well to do xp then


Totally agree. Doing it by Scenes would just be...weird, methinks. :)

Re: Bare Hands/Claws as Trademark Weapons?

Hullo, fougerec,

Personally, I don't see why not. The concept of the "weapon" as defined under the Trademark Perk doesn't seem to disallow natural weapons from being Trademarked this way.

Be interested to see what the official word on this is. :)

Re: Question About Experience Points and Advancement

Hullo, ZorValachan, I award by the Act. Once it took near 3 months to get those 5XP. They went slow and we had a couple cancelled sundays. Then the next Act they blew through in 2 sessions and were like "what just happened?". Since on that group, we use roll20 (different cities/states), it...
