The Personal Touch

20 or 25 XP quest

You've seen things develop, you've gotten involved… this is where that comes back. This is the part of the story where you change things and are changed in return.

You're involved now, and the climax is coming.

The Personal Touch (25XP)

Major Goals

The HG can award you 5 XP towards this quest when:
  • You learn something that profoundly changes your relationship with something - a friend, an enemy, a situation, your hometown, maybe even yourself.
  • Something inherently scary - like a murderer, a secret police officer, an unnameable horror, or something that cannot possibly be an angel - runs away from you in fear.
  • You change the mood of a crowd with an unrehearsed impromptu speech.

You can earn each bonus once, for a total of up to 15 XP.
