Rules For Making A New Character When An Old One Dies
When your character unfortunately passes into Negoro’s realm for his/her final visit, you will be given the opportunity to make a new one. The formula for the new character is 15 points + 5 if you write a background (for a possible 20) + 25% of all EARNED character points rounded up. Earned points are defined as any points gained for your character above and beyond the initial starting 15 or 20. Please note however that any BANKED earned points are not quartered. In other words if they are banked you do not lose them. When generating your new character you may not access all of the banked points at once. This is done for game balance reasons. You may access a maximum of 6 points from your bank per event as per the normal rules of banked points. The normal rules are only 6 points may be withdrawn from the bank per event attended and may be used in addition to any points earned that event including service point conversions. The ONLY exception to this rule is in the event a player wished to purchase a second (or third) class OR SINGLE skill that costs in excess of 12 points. In this case he may draw up to the amount needed to purchase that class or skill. IE – if the player wished to purchase a skill that cost 20 character points, and had access to that skill, he would be permitted to draw 14 character points from his bank as opposed to the usual 6. This is the ONLY exception and it must be for ONE CLASS OR SKILL, AND ONE PURCHASE of said skill. In this way you couldn’t buy a 20 point skill 4 times in one shot simply because your bank would allow for it or buy a second class and several skills.
Some examples of how this might work out…
A) Character A dies and is a 68 point character with no points banked. 68 – 20 = 48 earned points. This leaves character A with 12 points (48/4) which will be added to his bank. The new character will start at 15 + 5 (if you write a background that is approved within 2 events of playing that character not including the event in which it was generated) + 6 = 26 points with 6 remaining in the bank.
B) Character B dies and is a 95 point character with no points banked. 95 – 20 = 75 earned points. This leaves character B with 19 points (75/4 = 18.75 rounded up to 19), which will be added to his bank. The new character will start at 15 + 5 + 6 = 26 points with 13 remaining in the bank.
C) Character C dies and is an 90 point character with 15 points banked. 90 – 20 = 70 earned points. This leaves character C with 29 points (70- 15 (since these are in the bank already) = 55/4 = 13.75 rounded up to 14 + the 15 already in the bank), which will be added to his bank. The new character will start at 15 + 5 + 6 = 26 points with 23 remaining in the bank.
