Heroic Inspiration

Characters will be awarded a Heroic Inspiration point for various inconveniences (being knocked out, being captured, having a dependent kidnapped, when villains escape from jail, etc). They’ll be able to spend these points at the players’ discretion, for one of the following effects:

  • Second wind; the character heals to full health (only when safe and out of combat)
  • A lucky (or unlucky) blow; the player may alter a die just rolled to show any number desired
  • A flash of inspiration; the GM gives the character a good clue or hunch
  • Just what I needed; the character either finds a simple item that’s unlikely in the current environment, or can insert an unlikely element into the scene

Upon spending an Inspiration point, that character will receive 5 skill points.

Plot hooks

Each character will have 3 Plot Hook slots. When a Plot Hook is used by the GM, that character will be awarded an Inspiration point. Players can change their plot hooks between sessions. A Plot hook could be a Location, a Villain, a Victim, or an Event.
