the project

As we will most likely never get a new edition of 7th Sea this blog is my playground for toying with the system and in the end create a "new edition" of the game.

7th Sea is obviously a trademark of Alderac entertainment.

Experience

SystemPosted by Lord_Nabu Mon, August 06, 2012 14:32:07
As I said I want experience to be based on the actions of the character, not the player.

Scenario rewards
First and foremost, I'll keep the "completion award" for completing "adventures" or scenarios, a reward for success seems to be good. I might adjust it a bit down.

Session rewards
Further a flat one point reward per session. WW has done this for some time, and I think it's a good idea. a plain reward for taking part in the game.

Skill use

Apart from that I want my players to gain XP from using their skills, So my idea is this: every time the player rolls a knack (or attribute), he puts a mark next to the knack used, only one mark per knack, when you have ten marks you erase all the marks and get an XP. at the end of the scenario, you erase all the marks and note down how many you had, these count as free marks at the beginning of the next scenario.

Of course if a player RPs a knack use without rolling (unlikely in my gaming group, we like dice) the GM can assign him a mark for the relevant knack.

Likewise if a player starts "tick-hunting" the GM can refuse him ticks for irrelevant rolls.
