  1. 2 PPs per player per session.
  2. 1 PP reward for attempting dangerous actions when cinematically appropriate. (Awarded after action attempt regardless of success/failure.)
  3. 1 PP for those things done in session that really make the story awesome. (Not based on a dice result.)


1 - PP Cost:

  1. Re-Roll (AKA New result, is the result)
  2. Add +3 to next action <not damage> (AKA Increase chance of success)
  3. Manipulate NPC result by a step (AKA Crit-Success -> Success (MoS: 0) -> Failure (MoS: -1) -> Crit-Failure)
  4. Avoid a injury (AKA Flesh Wounds)
  5. Buy a clue (AKA Success for an information based IQ-test)
  6. Excuse an implausible element from a cinematic action; one "implausibility" per PP. (Not allowed in all campaigns.)

2 - PP Cost:

  1. Manipulate PC result by a step (AKA Crit-Failure -> Failure (MoS: -1) -> Success (MoS: 0) -> Crit-Success)
  2. Exchange for 1 CP




  1. Fix a bad roll (AKA Buying Success, Re-Roll)
  2. Avoid a consequence (AKA Flesh Wounds)
  3. Change the narrative (AKA Player Guidance)
  4. Excuse a cinematic action; one "implausible element" per PP. (Not allowed in all campaigns.)


Aspected Plot Points must be "justified" according to some condition in order to be used; see Higher Purpose (B59).

  • Karma (Renegade/Paragon).
  • Special Purpose: includes Planning Points, Tactics Points, potentially others.


Luck usage may be "cashed in" for a PP instead of the usual three rolls. Such use would be considered "luck-aspected."

Gigermann's "Iron-Man" Rules

  • Only "Aspected" Plot Point types are available
  • Only "Change the Narrative" usage is allowed
  • A Luck use may still be "cashed in" for a "Change the Narrative" use
