    What is DMing worth (AKA how do we award DM credits)

    So we've voted and DMs will be able to get some points/credits to give their characters xp

    Instead of trying to talk about 1 point gets x number of xps lets talk about what we really care about... what is DMing worth? (we can back math where x points = y xp out later)




    For every... month of running a game a DM can give a character a level
    ...3 months
    ...6 months
    ...9 months
    ...12 months
    ...15 months

    Multiple Games: Running multiple games is treated just like regular games


    Running an extra game is worth more (+25%)
    Running an extra game is worth more (+50%)
    Since it's harder you reward it more
    Running an extra game is worth less (-25%)
    Running an extra game is worth less (-50%)
    We want to discourage people running multiple games...
    Points/credits are awarded upon completion of adventures
    ...at intervals during adventures (intervals TBD) and forfeit if not completed


    All DMs get equal points for time
    So every month that you have a game open you get credits.
    DMs points would be accrued on a per encounter basis
    So when the PCs get XP for an encounter the DM accrues "units"
    Some believe this would encourage DMs to post more regularly/push games along
    Some believe this would penalize DMs who emphasize roleplaying over action/fights

    I am in an interesting period of my life; I will post in games that I run three times a week (M,W,F); and try to maintain obligations in existing games.
    ...disquieting...
    There was no end to his patience and endurance. He played day and night, his obsession was somewhat disquieting. It was less as if he were playing to dispel gloom or beguile tedium than as if he were giving himself up to the fangs of gaming devils."
