Aid Token Instructions
Once per encounter, any character at a table can use an Aid Token to assist the group in one of the ways described below. Once a table uses an Aid Token, one of the players then passes the Aid Token to a neighboring table for those players to use. A table can benefit from only one Aid Token per encounter. Because there are a limited number of Aid Tokens, hoarding one means that another table doesn’t get to use it. Table GMs should remind the players about the Aid Tokens and encourage the players to use them.
If a table receives an Aid Token and doesn’t need its benefits, the players are encouraged to boost its potency by expending some of their own resources or attempting a skill check. Boosting an Aid Token, including attempting a skill check, is part of passing that Aid Token to another table. A table cannot retry a skill check to boost an Aid Token, and each Aid Token can have only boost at a time. A table can boost an Aid Token even while in combat without taking any actions; the scenario assumes the aid was granted before that encounter began. Players should be encouraged to write their PC’s name down next to the boosted effect along with any other relevant information. Using a boosted effect consumes the boost; the player using that benefit should erase the boost information from the Aid Token.
Some Aid Token benefits can be used only if boosted by another table. An Aid Token’s benefits vary based on the table’s subtier, and these benefits can take one of the following forms.
