Quote of the Season
"If Reich had been the gunsmoke, Rhoswen was the gun - their youth swayed like washing in the wind, peaceful and unassuming, as though if they tried hard enough they might be able grab hold of it. Wasn't that the deceit of peaceful things? They drifted like butterflies just out of your reach." — Rhoswen in she was always meant to be a star

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 OC 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.

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!

    @Ulric @Orion @Bexley @Pavetta @Seraphina all updated! (Omg Jeanne, Sera's EXP is staggering)
    @Raymond updated, and since you've reached 25EXP you gain 20 points you can split however you'd like between attack and health. Just let any member of the staff how you'd like them applied. Also, you can use tier 2 magic now!
