This is the sole thread where experience updates will be recorded.

EU's XP SYSTEM

How to meet expectations:
    Include the following in each post:
  • The character's internal monologue/thoughts
  • The character's dialogue with other PCs/NPCs
  • Description of the character's intended actions
  • Proper mechanics (JIC, Perception, skill rolls & their purpose)
How to exceed expectations:
  • All of the above plus...
  • Clever ideas
  • Evoking an emotional response from the GM other than anger
  • Roleplaying in-character under challenging circumstances
  • Being posted within the first 4 days of a major GM post

xp for period during the 'tunnel' , includes up until the beginning of June 2014 ... has been added to your sheets.

Olan: 4,230 <--- Level up your PC
Jashurr: 4,800 <--- Level up your PC
Klassinger: 1,800
Jurgen: 240
Marcelline: 45

- - - - - -
Notice:
Based on recent site feedback discussions ... I will be switching to a more frequent xp awarding style.

Instead of the ~5 months it took to complete the 'tunnel' sequence , I will be awarding xp more often.

My intention at this time is about once per month ... give or take a little bit depending on exactly what's happening at that time IC ... For example , I will try and avoid awarding xp in the middle of combat.

XP for December:

Jurgen: 500
Klassinger: 600
Akito: 525
Bryanov: 475

Great posting from everyone, especially given the holidays! Everyone got at least one 'early post' bonus. Some great character interaction as well, good to see folks posting in response to each other, not just the GM posts.

Bryanov and Klassinger had some excellent posts using dialogue and internal monologue.

Akito got some bonuses for extra posts in one week (although most of those were on the short side - if you want to get more out of them flesh out those posts with some more detail).

I was feeling Christmassy, so gave everyone a 100xp bonus for the posting through the break consistently and for the great interaction.

Sheets have been updated.

Akito: 475: Lots of early post bonuses and multiple posts/character interaction.
Klassinger: 395: Excellent in-character posts, RP and frequent posts
Marcelline: 100: Only one post for the month, but nice recovery from the strange atmospheric conflict Aether had sent the character down.

Outstanding posting by everyone, and just about everyone made excellent use of the early-bird bonuses. Lots of character interaction and bonus xp this month.

Astra, in case you have not seen/heard this, GM posts go up Sunday (though many of mine are up Monday AM), if you post by Wednesday at noon (or midnight if my post did not go up till Monday) I award an extra 100 xp points for the week, for a total possible of 400 for the month.

Great work all around! Excellent use of internal monologue and dialogue, great in-character RP discussions between Akito and Oculus on how to deal with the villagers and the spoils. I'm looking forward to seeing how this group interacts now that they are all together.

Character sheets updated. No level-ups, but Akito is darn close.

Eurasia Posting Debrief

This is borrowed from Rogue Trader, and heavily (with some modifications) - but is applicable here. All credit goes to Lee for the excellent work and thought that went into this post.




I have noticed some player's posting styles this quad have not been ideal per EU standards. In an effort to help everyone improve, I've collected my thoughts here.

CAVEAT LECTOR
This is intended to improve everyone's experience, and I'll do so in as diplomatic a manner as I can - I'm not trying to cast aspersions on anyone's posting style or lay blame for poor XP or post-rates or EP awards. If you feel called out by anything here, stop being a diaper baby. ;)


How to Earn more XP and EP in Eurasia

We have a new XP system in place this quad, and that affects everything, going forward. In light of that, Here's a guide that I hope you'll find useful as you craft your posts.

XP

Posts must sill meet site standards, as set out here.

The first post following a GM post must have Perception and Just in Case rolls. Subsequent posts should not have them - just indicate that rolls are being carried forward.

XP is now awarded by meeting (or failing to meet) criteria listed by Consumer found at the top of this thread.

Consumer wrote:How to meet expectations:
    Include the following in each post:
  • The character's internal monologue/thoughts
  • The character's dialogue with other PCs/NPCs
  • Description of the character's intended actions
  • Proper mechanics (JIC, Perception, skill rolls & their purpose)


The minimum a post should have is the perception, JIC rolls, dialogue (when possible - when you're standing on a street corner alone, or under water, etc... obviously I won't expect external dialogue, so act accordingly), internal monologue (i.e., thoughts), and a description of what you're doing.

In brief:

    Perc roll
    JIC rolls (d20, d100)
    "Dialogue"
    Thoughts
    Actions

Skills must have some description of the intended effect/purpose, and must be used in furtherance of some goal. Note that although XP is no longer awarded per skill use, you may get XP for creative problem solving.

Dialogue should be in "Bold text with quotation marks".

Thoughts are in italics.

If you're putting your thoughts in non-italicized narrative (some of you do this), you are making me, the AGM, interpret which thoughts are yours and which thoughts are your character's. I'd rather not do this. Please don't make me do this. I may get it wrong, and it won't be me who pays the price.

To quote another player, you place quote tags around what they said (with bold and quotation marks where necessary)
Me wrote:"Like So"


Personally, when I quote, I tend to wipe out anything that wasn't spoken - that's the point of a quote. However, while being a "best practice", it's not a requirement to do so. It's acceptable to trim out narrative, but not to change what was said.

Maximizing your XP

So - you've met all the minimum criteria. What's next?

Consumer wrote:How to exceed expectations:
  • All of the above plus...
  • Clever ideas
  • Evoking an emotional response from the GM other than anger
  • Roleplaying in-character under challenging circumstances
  • Being posted within the first 4 days of a major GM post


Note "all of the above" - this means that you must meet expectations before you can exceed them.

Proof read your posts after you make them. Enlist other players to help! Have a post buddy- you check their posts, and they check yours.

Posts that are mere one or two line RP responses to other players, while sometimes necessary, won't count as "qualifying posts" for determining EP, and won't net you a lot of XP either. For that to happen, you have to exceed the minimum criteria.

Clever ideas count - so, in planning sessions, spitballing clever ideas (in character, and by posting - "Hangoust chat rooms" don't count!) to solve problems - even if it's not the solution that works, could net you XP, if it's clever.

Stay in Character - most of you do this - though some of you write narrative from a third-person point of view. As you write, try to think as your character would in that situation. Instead of "Jeff doesn't like to bother with long explanations for his choices", try some inner monologue: Guh... Long explanations are so BORING. Let's get on with it!, or some dialogue "Yeah... exposition isn't my thing. Sorry.", and throw in some action: "Jeff sighs and shrugs as Marlon asks his rationale for burning down the village". There's an old rule in storytelling that'll help you stay in character: Show, don't tell.

And, as always, post early, post often. You're literally throwing XP away by waiting longer than 4 days after a major GM post!

Increasing your EP

How do you increase your EP?

EP is awarded by post rate, which is determined by "qualified posts". What's a qualified post?

A Qualified Post is any post that exceeds the GM's minimum criteria.

Post rate is determined by dividing the qualified posts by the standard of 14 GM posts (which is adjusted if necessary). SO - post often, and exceed minimum criteria as much as possible. Shoot for 14 or more high quality posts per quad, and the EP will come.

As with anything else, you are going to get more out of the game the more you put into it.

Final note

If you have questions about how to do something in a post, mechanically (like quoting or rolling dice a particular way), Ask.

If you have questions about what you can see or do where your character is, Ask.

If you have questions about how to better meet criteria, Ask.
