As we were able to start before the quarter it also means you guys had a chance to gain some EP and XP. If you notice an error, please let me know and we can work on fixing it.House Rules wrote:Quarters
We divide the calendar into four periods per year: January 1 - March 31 / April 1 - June 30 / July 1 - September 30 /October 1 - December 31. For Savage purposes the end of each quarter is when experience (XP) is awarded, Bennies are reset, and post rates are calculated.
Experience Awards. Each quarter, the GM determines whether everyone earned 1 to 3 Experience Points. Total experience points are awarded to players at the end of each quarter.
Bennies Reset. That’s right reset - even GM awarded bennies. Everyone goes back to 3 bennies. Use ‘em or lose ‘em. No hoarding.
- The group accomplished little, 1 Point.
- The group had more successes than failures, 2 Points.
- The group succeeded greatly, and their adventure had a significant impact on the overall story, 3 points.
- This means players should earn 1-3 experience points per quarter, in addition to any bonuses listed below.
Player Reward System. At the end of each quarter we also calculate post rates to ensure players are keeping up with the site minimum. This is a simple calculation that takes the number of player posts in the quad divided by 10 weeks (yes we know quarters usually have 12 weeks. This gives you a little wiggle room). There’s even a little extra juice for you if you exceed the minimum.
- 0.99 or lower = Failure! Up your game.
1.0 post rate = Success! You met the target number.
1.01-1.49 post rate = Success with a raise! Receive 1 EP + 1 XP
1.5 - 1.99 post rate = Success with two raises! Receive 2 EP + 2 XP
2.00+ post rate = Holy crap! Receive 3 EP +2 XP and a bonus benny for the quarter.
- As a note only in character posts count. So while participation in the site as a whole is strongly encouraged it will not increase your individual character experience.
For the purposes of calculating posts I used the search utility and restricted results to the 99 Adventure Forum
