Between Game Actions

BGA RULES

      Each month a character can take up to 4 actions between games (representing the roughly 4 weeks between games), this limitation is placed 1) to represent the free time each character may have during the month, and 2) it is a constraint on the plot team for the time taken to process the additional work and get the results put out on a whole. The following are the types of actions that can be taken and the requirements.

 

  • Research- This action allows a character to hit the books and look for more in depth answers. When taking this action to research a topic you must submit a question, along with up to 2 Knowledge Areas you are using to find an answer; additionally noting where you are doing the research may affect outcomes. Characters with the Researcher Power can submit 2 research questions to be asked for each action, these do not have to be on the same topic. This can also be used for the action of Recipe research by noting which Recipe submission you are working on.

 

  • Training- Characters can spend their downtime learning skills that require an instructor from a prearranged teacher, an NPC often through Guilds and Orders.

 

  • Contact- Traveling to a known location to make contact with a character's Order/Attunement or NPC, this takes into account for travel time as well as standard tasks a character would perform while reporting to a base for their group or having an extended conversation with the NPC. This also will give the player access to potential plot info as it pertains to the organization.

 

  • Duty- If your character has a set role in the game, be it a noble title that requires your efforts and attention, holding a guild position or other important role in game, it takes time from your life to do so. This action represents your service and grants benefits to the position you serve.

 

  • Legwork-- This action is for short travel to a specific location, that you have the means to travel to, for the purpose of info collection on said location or to meet with an NPC for the same reason. This action requires the following to be submitted (single sentence responses),

    • Location and how you are getting there,

    • What you are looking for or what the goal of going there is,

    • Specific location or NPC name if you know it that you are trying to meet or learn about.
