Token System

We are using the Token System. Tokens are an easy way to represent the various resources that a character collects that would otherwise have to be laboriously recorded. There are three types of tokens that will be awarded in the campaign.

  • Resource
  • Providence


Resource tokens represent anything of value that the character has accrued during the course of the campaign. This can include anything such as treasure, favors, fame, and anything else that may be used to acquire goods and services from others in the world.

Providence represents an influence of a characters fate, a nudge, either from an internal or external source. It allows a character to manipulate events in their favor at critical moments. Providence is earned for especially virtuous or selfless deeds, most commonly this will be from acts that influence the world as a whole.
