Sweet20, anyone?
« on: March 16, 2013, 09:43:51 AM »
Has anyone ever used the Sweet20 rules in a Mastercraft game?  I'm thinking about it.

I haven't used it, but I don't see any reason why it couldn't work.  Many of the GMs here already hand wave experience and just give their players a level every adventure or two.
Don't follow your passion.  Take it with you.

I guess I was curious because FC's own narrative mechanics use XP values as a sort of building block for encounters and other adventure benchmarks.  I wondered if anyone who uses this or any alternate experience system has a problem making it work.

The "XP values" for monsters and opponents is also just a measure of how strong any particular mob is in relation. Same thing with traps, and benchmarks.

In my games, I used a mixture. I used some XP gains, but whenever I wanted to level I would just go.... "And you get a bonus of X so you level." and handwave the rest. Though, I'm currently playing in a handful of games that aren't using XP at all (not FC mind you), but level you whenever the GM feels like it. It would work just fine with FC as well, and would get rid of the players seeking XP, rather than adventures.

I stopped counting XP years ago. As Bill said, I hand wave experience in my FC games and there's absolutely no problem with that.
