EXP Updates and Reward Redemption


Reply here to either have your experience updated, or claim a Milestone Reward! Requests will be deleted as they are fulfilled to keep things tidy. 

To see how to gain experience, reference the Guidebook page and supplement. Here is a free to use tracker via Google Spreadsheets. Make sure you copy it to your own Google Drive!




Earning EXP

Experience can be earned in a variety of ways, all of which pertain to IC activity and interactions. The list below is what you can do to earn EXP. But first, some general guidelines:


EXP can only be earned in threads between Original Characters.
- For example, you cannot gain experience for healing a life-threatening wound on an NPC character.

There is a minimum 2 week cooldown period from the end date of each thread in between earning types of EXP.
- This means you can only participate in one EXP earning thread at a time, and must wait 2 weeks after its conclusion to begin a new thread.
- Personal Development threads are exempt from this rule (as many don't include threads!)

Minimum 3+ posts per character per thread to earn EXP.
- Your partner backing out will still earn you EXP, just not as much, just ask staff if that's the case!
- At least two of these posts must be dedicated strictly to the EXP earning topic.
