  • 2E - Why is the rate of advancement ludicrously high now?

    When I first skimmed through the advancement section, I had assumed that they simply made Group Beats the default, which was kind of neat, I guess. But on a closer read today...
    That's not what they did. At all.

    Let's look at a group of four players that each earn, on average, five beats per session.

    1) Under individual beats, they each earn five individual beats, and end the session with 1 Experience.
    2) Under group beats, they contribute to a shared pool consisting of 20 beats, which get distributed evenly amongst them at the end of the session, ending with 1 Experience each
    3) Under this 'Common Pool', they contribute to a shared pool of 20 beats. For every 5 beats in the pool, each character gets 1 experience. They end the session with 4 Experiences each.

    ...what?
    Is this an error or some sort of oversight?

    I believe there's still a cap of one beat per source per scene, so if two players fulfill an aspiration in a single scene it's only one beat. That's my reading, at least.

      It might just be unclear language. You could submit an errata if it seems in error to you.
