A question for the rules-savvy folks.
Mercurial Mind, a boon in Dungeon 177 and the character builder, has "Trigger: You hit an enemy with an unaugmented at-will attack power." It has the Psionic keyword, if that's important. Could my rogue meet said item's trigger by using an at-will rogue attack power such as Piercing Strike? It's unaugmented, to be sure, but that's only because it can't be augmented at all. I think the text is suggesting that only an augmentable power can be used, but that's not exactly what it says.
In any case, my rogue wanted this item for its property effect; the power is just a bonus.

PHB3 pg 216, a power needs to be augmentable to be unaugmented.

You receive the rounded down time gold amount so if you apply it to your PC who is currently level 3 you'd receive 848/125 = 6.6 but rounded down = 6 months of time gold x 127 gp = 762.
This assumes he's level 3 for the whole amount of it and just reaches level 4 with the xp bump.

Ok so you don't take the new level into account for time gold, just the existing level? I definitely did not get that.
And no - only 390 XP is needed to level of the 848. So I'll be 458 into level 4.
So wait - you're saying I'd get time gold for 390 XP at level 3 and 458 at level 4? Oh jees - I like math and even I think this is getting complicated.
So 390/125 = 3 months (rounded down) at 127 g / mo = 381 gold, plus 458/145 = 3 months (rounded down) at 175 g / mo = 525, which totaled is 381+525 = 906 gold. So my final boost would be 848 XP and 906 gold?
Ok, so there has got to be a better way. If we're really concerned with people gaining unfair amounts of cash then this is a way to be very precise, but I'd say otherwise just do something simple and forget about it. The entire reward system we have is so loose anyway (since it's all based on whatever your current DM decides) that +/- a bit of gold doesn't seem like it could possibly make a difference.
Then again, this situation clearly doesn't come up very often so it may not be worth the effort to hash out something new just for a few exceptions.
Maybe it's time to propose a parcel system like LEB? It's certainly a whole lot less paperwork.

I was wondering: The Wiki has no entry on the fluff origins of Revenants. Are they permitted in play, and if so, is there any pre-established fluff for me to look at regarding them?

I'm pretty sure I've seen at least one revenant character so I am almost positive they aren't banned.

They aren't banned, actually I'm not sure if anything is banned...
