Player Reward Points

Player Reward Points

To PRP Tally

I have stolen this, nearly verbatim, from the “A Manifestation of Chaos” campaign on Obsidian Portal. I think it’s a terrific way to rewards players for going “above and beyond” in the campaign, as well as to incentivize greater participation, without breaking the game.

The following tables are not finalized, and all rewards are subject to DM fiat.

Character Biography – Write down your character biography in your character’s page. Depending on how detailed your bio, I will adjudicate points. The rule of thumb I’ll be using is 1 point per good paragraph. Note: Some of these paragraphs are allowed to be Player Secrets. (You’ll see a link that allows you to add player secrets. These will only be seen by you and the GM.) 1-7
Special Projects – Periodically I will post projects into the forum. These can range from creating an NPC to writing the history of a specific Dwarven city to designing a dungeon to making certain wiki pages look better, and everything in between. If you have an idea, feel free to bring it to me and if I like it, I’ll assign some points for it. Varies

1 Gestalt Level:

Gaining a gestalt level is similar to gaining two classes in one level. The character uses the best aspects of each level. For instance, let’s say a 3rd level rogue wants to have a gestalt level for their 4th level. In this scenario, they want to be able to hit harder in combat, so they decide to take their gestalt level with Barbarian.

We line up the two classes, and choose the best abilities (in bold) from each class as follows:

Rogue 4th level Barbarian 1st level
HP d6 d12
Skill Points 8+Int 4+Int
BAB +1 +1
Fort +0 +2
Ref +1 +0
Will +0 +0
Special Uncanny Dodge Fast Movement, Rage 1/day

At 4th level, this character will get the d12 hp of the Barbarian instead of the d6 from the Rogue. They’ll keep the rogues skill points since they’re higher per level. (The character gets the class skills from both classes here.) The Base Attack Bonuses are the same. The character takes the higher Fortitude save from the Barbarian, and the higher Reflex save from the Rogue. Lastly, the character gets the special abilities from both classes.
