Panda’s Talking Games 37: Leveling Up Mid Session

pandas_talking_games_logo_-_oct_2016-200xSenda and Phil show us how they handle leveling up characters mid session! It’s not something we’ve done a lot but we tackle it anyway. Why would you plan to level up in the middle of a game session? If you’re going to, what are the best ways to do it without interrupting the flow of the game itself? In more news, I can’t remember the words to the song, we sing a couple extras, and we learn Phil’s college nick name.

    There are games where leveling up is an intrinsic part of the story. For example, Sig’s key themes are highlighted by character advancement, and for oneshots there is value in going through that at the end of the session because it highlights the effects of the characters on the world and each other.
    Id also say 5e leveling is simpler than DW leveling at almost every level.
