System details

Power level

The game was started at "Up to your waist" level (7 refresh, 25 skill points), with one significant milestone at the end of each "book" (with an extra significant milestone at the end of Book 8, Chapter 7: Smash and Grab). The ends of Book 4: Being Green, Book 8: Round Robin and Book 11: Play Time marked major milestones, so the game is now at "Submerged".

At the beginning of Book 12: The Seventh Fire all characters have:

Base refresh: 10
Skill points: 37

House rules

  • Writing a session summary or another wiki page earns the writer's character an extra FP at the beginning of the next session.
  • If a character ends a session with an FP total greater than their refresh, they begin the next session with the same number of FP. However, FP pools are reset at the end of every "book" (significant milestone).
  • We have experimented with rolling d6-d6 instead of 4df, but so far it looks like we will stick with 4df.
