    I favor session awards myself. It is a natural point at which to wrap the evening. It gives the players time to conetmplate where to put said points before the next session.

What are you looking for?:
I'm not currently looking for a group, as I found a great bunch of players through pen and paper.

About Me
Biography:
I am currently playing in a D&D and Star wars Campaign that is on a rotating schedule. I use paper and pen to keep in touch with group members and as a way to find other players who might be a good match for our group.
