“What are prestige points?”

First of all, I want to put a shout out to arsheesh who let me steal the idea (take a look at his beautiful site here) and to Onsilius who inspired both of us (his site can be seen here).

Basically, prestige points are bonuses the player earns for his character to modify a die roll during an encounter [see: Prestige Point Uses] or to make enhancements to unique aspects of the character when he or she levels [see: Prestige Point Burns].

“How do I gain prestige points?”

Each player that contributes editorially to the “Brave & Foolhardy” campaign site will gain prestige points. Initially, points will be awarded to each player who uploads his character to the site including; the basic vital statistics (abilities, saves, skills and items); a brief physical description, and a short bio. One point will be awarded for each of these categories with a bonus point for a detailed description and bio with mention of NPC’s, enemies, desires, fears, and so on.
Note: players will be able to earn more points as they update their characters info throughout the campaign.

Players can also gain prestige points during the campaign by providing a journal (in the “Wiki” tab) written from the character’s perspective that includes adventure details, thoughts about his party members and the world around him, dreams and ambitions.
Note: Other players will be able to read these so player’s won’t necessarily want to write EVERYTHING.

Also, any player that wants to assist in adding any new NPC (in the “Characters” tab) that the characters meet will gain prestige points. Entries should include any useful information including, description, affiliations, companions, rumors etc. The DM will provide any pertinent information for players that are interested.

“When will I be awarded Prestige Points?”

First of all, a player will be awarded points when he has uploaded his character to the site. In addition, players who have contributed to the site in any relevant way will be awarded prestige points at the end of each quest or adventure (generally 1 to 2 character levels).

“Why Prestige Points?”

Two reasons: 1) Everybody wins when players participate in the building of the site. I believe that the more a player gets involved the more the campaign will come to life for everyone. Other players will gain a little more insight into the other characters which will enhance the role-playing and the DM has more details to make the campaign more personal to the characters (and players) and 2) The less time I have to spend writing adventure logs, NPC’s, and such, the more time I have to spend on all the other time-consuming work involved in creating an exciting, adventure-filled campaign. As a DM, it’s disappointing enough to put forth so much effort and to find out few players took the time between sessions to read anything that was posted. I’m hoping by dangling a little carrot that you, as players, will find a reason to invest a little more into this campaign and this site to make it more than a night of rolling funny dice and killing shit.

“What’s the difference between Uses and Burns?”

Prestige Point Uses: A player can use as many points he has accumulated as he wants per encounter. After the encounter all prestige points a renewed.

Prestige Point Burns: When points are used for any of these bonuses they are subtracted from the total points collected.
