Plot Points

Plot Points (PP) are the currency of play. You earn them by investing in the story or taking risks, and you spend them to enhance your hero’s actions, activate opportunities rolled by the GM, and more.

How many PP do I get?
You start the game 1 PP. You may increase this amount by 1 for each XP you spend, up to a maximum of 5 PP. You only lose PP when a new act starts, in which case it resets to 1. Unless a new act starts, your PP roll over from session to session. 5 PP is the Maximum amount you may have at any one time.

  • Add a stunt die for your Power Set or Trait.
  • Activate certain special effects (SFX) in a Power Set.
  • Activate an opportunity rolled by the GM.
