Not So Winter-Break DnD.
Bonus Points are a magical, soup filled thing. Here are their various uses.
1. HERO POINTS
Read the Pathfinder Wiki to learn about Hero Points. Bonus and Hero Points can be exchanged at a 1:1 rate.
2. MUTATIONS AND OTHER PERMANENT CHANGES
Anthony, in his campaign, had a concept called Essence, which essentially let you mutate in various ways. Automail, animal implants, divine intervention, etc. It’s all here. You have that too, only you have only UNLOCKED a few ways to mutate. Hero Points can be translated into Essence at a 1:1 rate. Essence will get its own article in about a few hours.
As you may have noticed on the Character Creation page, I discuss UNLOCKING, and what supplements you have LOCKED or UNLOCKED. However, if you’re not patient, you can easily unlock one item by paying 5 Bonus Points. You can Unlock a whole book by paying 10 bonus Points! In addition, you can force me to read, then unlock a book you want to add but that’s not on the list by paying ten bonus points. I will, however, alter the books for balance, especially if they are older books.
4. CUTSCENE SKIP
By paying 2 Bonus Points, you can get over that annoying thing called “roleplaying” and gain a relationship with one MINOR NPC! This NPC will give you all the benefits as if you had befriended them normally. This is a waste of your bonus points, especially since you can roleplay with me via skype, even without others around.
HOW DO I GAIN THESE MAGICAL FANTABULOUS THINGS???
1. CONTRIBUTING TO THE WIKI!
Yes, that’s right. Every contribution to the wiki gives the benefit of not only adding the the lore of this world, but also gaining a beautiful Bonus Point. Huzzah!
2. WRITING A BACKSTORY
While this can only be given once, you will gain 1 bonus point when you send me a lovely, at least one page long, single spaced, times new roman backstory. Bonus Bonus Points will be given if it is written longhand with calligraphy, or it is significantly longer.
3. PLOT-RELATED EVENTS
There will be some plot-related events where you will gain a bonus point, though your character, of course, will not know it.
4. OTHER REASONS
As your DM, I am the master of bonus points, and can give them at will. If I ask you to do stuff for me, and you do it, you will gain the magic that is Bonus Points.
TAKING AWAY BONUS POINTS!
Sadly, Bonus Points will be taken away if you cheat, or look at other peoples notes to the DM. Notes to the DM is serious business, bro. This also works for “eavesdropping on Player-DM conversations”, “reading Player-DM emails or Skype Chats”, and “hacking into DM’s facebook to read things that they have sent back and forth”, although I’d deduct more points for that last one. Don’t be messing with my facebook, yo.
As the DM, I am allowed to cheat, and also have no Bonus Points. If I did, I would have at least 27 or something. Maybe infinity.
BONUS POINTS COUNT:
1: Dragon Naming System
1: God and Human-Pony Names
1: Staying Awake During Vital Roleplaying Scenes
