PbP vs. FtF


Online Play


I'm in two PbP for the con with pregens. I am also going to be playing in a number of games in November at a con. Is it legal to assign a chronicle sheet to a character if I play the character in November and in a PbP that starts before that date and ends after that date? If so, and the character is at the threshold of going up a level, how do you reconcile that. What about two PbP that start at different dates but overlap. I vaguely remember seeing somewhere that that was legal, but how can it be if either would push your character up a level?

If you have a character in a PbP, you can't use them because they are 'already in play'. That goes for assigning sheets to them for games played in the meantime, etc, as well.

Reconciliation is simple. If the character is not 'active' in a PbP, then they can be played either in a PbP, a virtual table-top (VTT) or in person.

ie, no 'double-timing' is allowed for a given character. Play one scenario at a time until completion.

This is also why some folks have character counts ranging in the dozens to scores...
