EverQuest: Second Darkness
This list will be updated with miscellaneous rules as they become needed.
- XP is player-based, not character based. However, backup characters or “alts” are always one level below the main character. This is because when the main dies, the alt will have “lost a level” and come in one lower, just as if the character had been resurrected on the spot.
- XP will also be awarded for participating in the Roleplaying Forums, on a case-by-case basis.
- If a character dies, the player reverts to the beginning of the prior level. Thus if a 10th level character dies, the alt (or resurrected character) begins at the start of level 9.
- XP is also participation-based. If a player basically sits in a corner or otherwise CHOOSES not to participate in a combat, puzzle or activity while the others in the party are, they get less than the others. It doesn’t seem fair to us to grant equal XP for unequal effort. If the player or character has no choice – i.e. knocked out or held – that is another matter.
