EXP Updates and Reward Redemption
Reply here to either have your experience updated or claim a Milestone Reward!
Experience can be earned in a variety of ways, all of which pertain to IC activity and interactions. Some general guidelines:


Please reference the Guidebook page and supplement.

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

You MUST highlight the applicable portions of your posts!
- For example, if you are redeeming "Heal (5) smaller wounds" then you must highlight parts of your posts that pertain to healing.
- This will greatly speed up the verification process for staff - and, in turn, yourself!
- Personal Development redemptions 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.

    @Below Zero, mostly completed! Please see notes on your redemption forms (or the discord DM I sent ya<3)
    @Asterios, done!
    @Polar North, done with a minor change! The "1st time with" applies to individual members, not individual characters, so RB can only be claimed once (vs claimed for both Apolonia and Marisol). HOWEVER, you hadn't claimed Sid in a previous "(5) 1st time withs for EXP" bundle so I swapped RB for Sid, and you're good to go with +6EXP!
    @lackadaisy - @Benedict actually got 6EXP for both your 1 and 2 year anniversary! @Salome is all set, as is Willoughby who is also at her 25EXP milestone, too!
