In all honesty I'll probably use a little bit more Experience points to start to better reflect the experiences needed to be part of the group I use, does this mean every character will need or use this I don't know and won't until I sit down and work everything out I need to run my Exploration chronicles.

​On characters being able to equal Proxies I think it is a good thing. Since in my campaign the Proxies are extremely removed this lets the PC aspire to greater heights in the stories we are telling.
