Cool new feature!

So basically, if you get to a new location and your fatemaster hands you 500xp just for walking into a cave, you’re gonna have a whole lot of fun.

Discovering New Locations

Entering into a new location can be an exciting and important experience for characters, and the fatemaster is encouraged to make these situations as lush and impressive described as possible. In addition to being pivotal points in the story, discovering new locations can lead to various improvements to your character sheet including but not limited to character experience.

The amount of experience gained for discovering a new location is directly related to the importance of the discovered location. A fatemaster must assign the importance of a new location based upon several factors. The biggest factor in determining the importance of a location is the location’s relation to the current story. If the location the characters discover must be found in order to progress the story, then the amount of experience gained will be much greater than finding a location that has nothing to do with the current story. This can lead characters to want to stay within the location parameters of the story, and can hinder experience gained for wandering outside the story as well. The second criteria for determining experience gained from discovering a new location is the danger level of the area. The basic idea is that the more dangerous areas are worth more experience than those that are safe.
