The Storytellers want to reward the players that contribute to the game above and beyond the actions and interests of their characters. The players who costume above and beyond what is generally expected, who add to the setting by bringing their own props and running locations and people who volunteer play time to help us judge scenes or run plots will be rewarded.
Plot Points can be spent on a variety of rewards that range from unlocking races that are not available from the start (Antagonists groups, Prestige Classes, Mages or other supernatural races are an example of this) to character specific rewards like re-writing a character death. (Your character may be alive, yet they woke up looking at their body strapped to a mad scientist’s table because they are a brain in a jar.)
Plot Points can not be used by players in any PvP situation except in extreme circumstances approved by the Head Storyteller. Plot Points are primarily for altering the outcome of a 'Player Vs Environment' situation.
