:ooc: Before we continue with the new round of combat, although I am going to be posting in it tonight or tomorrow - it was pointed out to me that I have not awarded these PC's any advances in a while.

So I looked and it has been since the end of 2010! Of course, we did a complete start over of Chapter 12 and Star Wars kind of took over gaming here for a while, but holy crap! That is way too long!

So, I am awarding two advancements to all PC's in Chronicles of the North. This is for their efforts in our last chapter and also for being so damned patient.  ;)

Post your advancement picks here and update your sheets. I will update the stat blocks for you.
Narrator: Darkening of Mirkwood | Chronicle of the North | Tempest Rising | To Boldly Go | Welcome to the 501st!
Esgalwen [♦♦♦♦♦○] Dmg 10/12  |  Edge 8  |  Injury 16/18
Nimronyn [Sindarin Pale gleam] superior keen, superior grievous longsword - orc bane
Foe-slaying - when attacking a bane creature, reduce Edge of weapon by value of bearer's Valour

Shadow bane [when in Forward stance, add 1 success die to each attack]
Skirmisher [if carried encumbrance is 12 or less, increase Parry by +3 when in close combat stance]

:ooc: Game update: waiting on player's 2 Advancement picks to be posted

This is just an update to remind me where I am with our three games - not a snipe at any players, nor a rush to get you to actions.

 :ooc: the advancement rules suck. i can spend one pick to get +1 to a skill or two to get an edge. Why wouldnt you munchkin?  It would cost me three picks to get Lore Eriandor at +3 or two to get Valor +4 to fear checks.

 :ooc: its not that the system is bad... Yes, left unchecked, you can munchkin a character but the point is that you collaborate with the narrator on your picks...  It is advised that you limit your choices to things that are story related.

:ooc:  We've been playing this game for over 12 years now and no one has munchkined a character - I think that comes from players that like to run rules instead of build a character.

Anyway, as to your point - the cost to build a character's skills is not cheap when you compare it to an Edge that gains a +4 bonus, but that Edge usually can only be taken once and then it is bought. To further grow your Reactions - which can be very important, even compared to skills - is a greater expense. So, the Edges allow for early mods to keep a PC alive while they are advancing.
