What Are Prestige Points?
Points can either be burned or spent, depending on what ability a player is wanting to use. Once a player has spent a point, it cannot be used again until the following week. Burning a point completely removes the point from the player’s pool. Players are not required to burn unspent points first. The first tier of abilities are useful for a single round of combat. Only one ability may be used per round and lasts until the beginning of the next round. Players must declare the use of the ability before the outcome is determined.
Encounter Abilities may only be used once per encounter. If a player wishes to use them again, the point value is burned rather than spent. Players may burn points for special upgrades to their character. Each permanent ability may only be purchased twice per character. This means that an ability such as Palmer, Srsly! will only save your character twice before it is time to let her go.
As a final note, prestige points are bound to a player, not the character. If you have ten points and are unable to save your character from death, those ten points will remain for your new character to use. In addition, players are allowed to give their own points to other players, but the GM must be notified of this transaction.
