Got a very good player suggestion in my email about experience point awards (thanks Matt!)
Based on his suggestion, I’ve come up with an xp point award system for the characters.
Posting a comment: 10 xp (per DM blog entry)
1st post: 10 xp
2nd post: 5 xp
DM’s choice: 10 xp
So, basically, making a comment post gets the character 10 xp, just like that. And they get rewarded for the 1st 2 comments added to the DM’s blog post. And, I’ll choose one comment to give an additional 10 xp to that character. Additionally, experience points will be given out for much more than combat. In fact, I’m planning on the 1st adventure being combat-light. Ultimately, the most XP will be awarded for advancing the story, whether through killing stuff, solving puzzles, interacting with NPC’s or whatever the case may be.
