If you have any left over points they are converted back into plot points.

I also need an e-mail (PMed) from everybody in the game except DoubleL and Suika. I have yours, Wolfman from way back when, i have Ychrana's, god save my soul, i have Saratek's and copatts (from FB). I will send you all personalised materials for upgrading to the new system - converting traits and whatnot - (provided i have time).

Also as an important difference please note that in the Cortex version of the rules Plot points do not convert into advancement points. The two are separate.

As far as rewards go, for this adventure you all get three advancement points.
Plot point wise everybody who is under 6 plot points now has 6. Everybody who is over 6 also now has six only he cans spend every one of his points over six for 1.5 Advancement points rounded down.

Say Jimmy has two plot points -------> He now has six
Say Nancy has nine points ---------> She now has six and 3 * 1.5 = 4.5 (4) Advancement points

Update: You can hold on to your advancement points for now as i am considering other options for levelling up

Racist wut? It would actually be to your advantage, DoubleL if you were black ( i love me sum black people), the alternative being that you are a White Zuid Afrikaaner, which is french for Racist Dutchman.

In any case you'll get plenty of plot points and advancement points once we get the chapter going and you get to RP with the rest of the crew.

I don't have to take that smacktalk from someone who might be French! Possibly close to the Belgian border since you keep referring to my nationality in Dutch form, and if you are, good sir, I should inform you that Afrikaners > The Dutch

I take offence to that! And I'm not Dutch (Though i do live in the Netherlands) or French, I'm Romanian. Ours is the land of Dracula and... little else

So let me recap. i have a South African, an Australian, a Brit and miscellaneous Americans in my game.

Quite the commonwealth. I now only need a pakistani or indian, a canadian and a New Zeelander and i can crash you all into the side of a mountain.

Okay I found the old post for our conversion.

Quote:
Fightin Type is a d10
Healthy as a horse (Maj) is a d8
Heavy tolerance (Min) is a d4
Steady calm (Major ) would be a d8

Traumatic Flashes is a d8
Leaky Brainpan is a d6 in Hurptman's case
Chip on the shoulder is a d8 - a good case of a d12 chip on the shoulder would have just shot the sergeant and the marine that had rifle butted his teeth in. even a d8 would have stabbity stabbed the guy a bit but all in all i think a d8 is fair
Twitchy - d4
Credo - i'll give you a d10 although you better start playing it that way or i'll cut your advancement points to half - leaving children n the middle of the road for the uncaring quasi-totalitarian 'law' i is NOT 'protecting the weak' regardless of how you flip it.

And NO you couldn't just increase willpower. Traits and complication points are handled separately, they neither increase or decrease attributes.

That gives you 4 points to spend on assets or subtract from complications. Hypothetically.
I'll add that to Hurptman's character sheet when we convert. I'm planning on spending the extra points to get a d4 in Sawbones... or d2 whatever it costs.


As for spending all advancement points before converting if I've got this all correct I now have 6 plot points and 3 advancement points for finishing the chapter.
So I can convert the 6 plot points then spend all 9 points before converting to cortex and whatever advancement points are left over get turned back into plot points?

If that's all right I'd like to buy a d8 in Unarmed Combat/Systema then have 1ap leftover turned back into 1pp.
