What do you think about being able to Buyoff an Ability, perhaps getting Bonus or Gift Dice, instead of XP? Or maybe another resource? I don't know.
I've been having some thoughts on Harm and XP.
I like the idea of blacking, or crossing out an Ability.
It seems that stories have a Harm goal, where transformation takes place.
I don't know. There's not a direct link from Harm to XP in TSoY, and there should be at least a relation.
Maybe it should take Harm to buyoff Keys?
I get that Story Guides can already just dish out Harm, like a Hard Move in AW, but why can't they say no with Bringing Down the Pain?
What would they get from it?
