New Table Rule
5- As the Table cross-talk has been complained about and is slowing down the game play(something we all dislike) I am creating rules to help keep the issue down. I will try and lead with the carrot and see if that works! The new rule is this. Anyone who goes a entire session with no crosstalk will gain 30% exp bonus! Not only that but if you can manage to do so for two sessions in a row I will award you one Fate point! This Fate point may be used for the following things(the exp bonus once per 6 sessions).. A one time 50% exp bonus for a single session(this does stack!) a free extra turn in game,a +8 to any roll(other than Hit point/leveling rolls) or one saved from death and instead left for dead. This rule is subject to change at any time take advantage of it now! Later the rule may not be so good!
I had thought of hurrying through the first 3 levels of the game with the fast exp tables before changing it to medium at 4th and slow table at 7th but I will just add rule 5 for now. Once the guys are 4th level and the cross-talk has gotten better I will ease off on the huge bonus.
I think the issue is mainly centered around one player (my oldest boy) who hasn't been playing with the group for a few months. Not that everyone wasn't doing it but he seemed to be the linchpin.
Hope this works! Cause the stick aint pretty!
