Tokens with Benefits

benniesHow you get ’em

In this post I shall attempt to elaborate on the many ways players may receive Fate Tokens (bennies):

  • In a normal session, each player receives three tokens at the start of play. Characters with the Lucky or Very Lucky edges start with extra. They also each have a nomination token that they can trade in to give another player a token to reward something awesome.
  • In a ‘carry-over’ session, the players start with whatever they had left over from last session plus bonus tokens from the Lucky and Very Luck Edges
  • Characters that have the Heroic (Major) Hindrance should get a bonus token at the start of a story or chapter. This does not carry over – use it or lose it.
  • Players may receive a token for actions or role-playing that I feel is deserving. If you think I have missed something, use your nomination.
  • Nominations must be made at the time – you can’t hold onto it and then give it out later. It is not a poor man’s Common Bond.

Bribery

I will reward the following meta-game activities:

  • Signing up for Obsidian Portal and/or accepting the campaign invitation on that site – 1 token, one time only. Use it that session.
  • Adding your character bio & description to the Obsidian Portal site – 1 token, one time only. Use it that session.
  • Writing an adventure log (recording the session) on Obsidian Portal– 1 token each time (at my discretion). Use it that session.
  • Updating or adding to the campaign wiki on the Obsidian Portal site – 1 token each time (at my discretion). Use it that session.

How you use ’em

Fate Tokens can be traded in for an in-game benefit in the following ways:

  • The normal reasons allowed in the Savage Worlds core rules – re-rolling a Trait test, removing Shaken, or to make a Soak roll.
  • The Extra Effort setting rule allows the player to spend a token to add 1d6 to a Trait test.
  • The No Mercy setting rule allows all players to spend a token to re-roll damage from an attack.
