The houserules are light, but we've had a lot of fun with these ones in the past.
Instead of individual characters gaining experience points (XP), XP is awarded to the party as a group. You can find the party's XP total on the campaign page.
Every session we’ll call for a volunteer to update the Adventure Log, serving as an impartial scribe and providing a synopsis of the session. If the update is completed before the following session, the party will be awarded additional XP. Once a player has updated the journal, they may not volunteer again until all of the other players have updated it, unless every other player declines to update it for a session. This ideally keeps one player from always being saddled with the duty. The Adventure Log should be updated directly to the blog in the Campaign area..
After each session, players also have an opportunity to submit a reflection, a few paragraphs in character which reflect on the events of the session. This could be an in-character journal, an internal monologue, or any other form. Reflections should be added to the character's personal blog in the Campaign area. If the reflection is submitted before the next session, the party will be awarded additional XP. This XP reward is cumulative for each character who submits a reflection. More reflections = more XP.
The Player Vote
At the end of each session, any player may call for a player vote to recognize the a particularly good session or action by one of the players at the table. Only one such vote may be called per session. Votes are conducted anonymously, and the winner’s character is awarded a point of Inspiration. In the event of a tie, the GM will act as a tiebreaker.
Ilderan Tales does not require 100% attendance as a rule. We’re all busy people, and sometimes life intrudes on the game. The game must go on however, and so long as there are three players present, it will do so. If you’re unable to attend, no worries. Your character will essentially remain a silent partner for the game.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, such as being labelled common knowledge, information on the wiki is strictly out of character. This holds especially true for the individual character pages which players manage, as well as any reflections which are posted to the wiki. This is a space to share our collective creativity, not to gain an edge in game. Want to go to that cool place in the wiki? Let's negotiate that in the game and create some opportunities.
