Character Advancement

Participation Experience / RP Tokens
Because much of the campaign and plot development occurs through player-to-player interaction, character advancement is heavily linked to actively role-playing in the campaign. Each hour that the player participates in role-play earns the player a Role-play (RP) token, up to a limit of 8 hours per day. RP Token acquisition is not bound to a particular character, only the player's activity. As such, the player earns RP tokens regardless of how many characters they are playing and even for running NPCs (see GM Tokens below).

RP tokens can be spent on any character the player owns to grant them 150 XP and 100 GP. They do not need to be spent on characters that were role-played to earn the token, so players should not feel limited to a particular PC. They may be divided between a player's characters as he or she sees fit.

GM Tokens
GMs earn RP tokens at the usual rate that players earn them, so a GM that RPs NPCs and the like around towns earns hourly RP tokens as normal.
GMs also earns an additional 2 GM token for each encounter that they run during an adventure, to a maximum of 8 GM tokens per day.
GM tokens can be exchanged for XP and wealth relative to the level of the character it was spent on as shown on the chart below.

Note: If for some reason a GM's character is involved in an adventure the GM is running, the GM's character is treated as an NPC in the adventure, meaning that they only gain RP and GM tokens as normal and their character does not gain XP and gold as part of the adventure (if the GM wishes for the character to get experience and loot they must spend their GM tokens on them).
