How to Acquire
You can get bonus points for doing the stuff listed below for character creation. Please find a spot on your character sheet in the player secret section to keep tabs on how many you have, how you got each point, and then where you spent them.
Other than at CC, you can get points each session, 1 point for doing a forum post that is your character’s “journal entry”, or their thoughts about the session. This should be decently sized, not just a paragraph or two, but because it’s just their thoughts it also shouldn’t take you very long, something with thought put into it, but not an essay per se.
*Every session the players will vote on one person that they think deserve a bonus point, whoever gets the most votes gets the point.
*I may also assign a point each session, depending on a few things that you don’t get to know.
*You may also get a bonus point for being the person to do the Adventure Log.

X : interesting in game effects, this might be things to do with your character or subtle alterations to the universe; depending on what you want will depend on the price also how much you spend will determine how much of an effect we’re talking about. EG: “Evil guy’s plan to destroy the city is hampered” is your request. If you spend 2 points he might misplace the key he needs and be set back a day. If you spend 10, the key might have been stolen by one of his enemies and replaced by a trapped version. You could also ask for other boons (a pet dog, a magic item, etc.)
