Cacodoxical Experience Level Advancement Alternative

HEY! I made this thing below! 

You will need these (or something along these lines) to make use of it:



Be gentle with these rules -- they have not yet been corrupted through exposure to power-hungry players and their avatar-murderhobos. Some adjustments may be necessary.

  1. "One Last Charge" seems ripe for abuse, as players could hang on to used items (like an expended Ring of Wishes) and then make use of that item at the very reasonable rate of 3 blood chits per wish.

    I also think that some gold chip abilities should be restricted by class. "Send me an angel," frex, seems best suited to Clerics and Paladins, while "Fork it over" is more of a rogue ability.

    1. All good points, Erin. I'm going to do a test-run with these rules this weekend.

      Re: "One Last Charge" -- I would limit its use on a magic item to one time only. So, yes, a ring of three wishes could be stretched to a fourth wish in this way, but not to a fifth.

    2. Sensible, but not stated in the rules just yet.

      Furthermore, it could be argued by rules-lawyers types that "one use only" applies to the player spending the chip, not the item. Perhaps an explicit ruling about the item crumbling to nonmagical dust as the last bit of residual magic holding it together is wrung out like water from a cloth?
