We have additional rulings (known as “addenda”) that help the Society run games at scale. The Universal Addendum covers parts of the game common to all genres.

The Universal Setting document describes the world in which the games are set.
Genre-specific rules and guides
Each genre that we run has an addendum with genre-specific rulings and a setting document. You’ll also find character sheets and guides to specific parts of the games here.

At the moment, the process for approvals is:
Check with the appropriate addenda as to the Approval Level. If it is LST Approval, a quick conversation with your LST will suffice.
If the item requires further approval, you will need to write an email containing:
What the approval is for
Why you want the item/power
How your character is obtaining the item/power
And anything else you feel appropriate to support your request
The email recipients are determined as follows:
DST Approval: Send to your LST and your DST. If the approval requires communication with other LSTs, the DST will do that.
GST Approval: Send to your LST and the appropriate GST.
UST Approval: Send to your LST, the appropriate GST, and the UST.
It is likely that the higher level people in the chain will not respond until the lower levels have had a chance to have input, although that isn’t a hard and fast rule.
What is catch-up XP
Catch-up XP is an extra pot of experience points to ensure that newer characters do not fall too far behind the power levels of established characters. Catch-up XP applies to each primary you create.
When does catch-up XP start from?
Catch-up XP counts from 1 March 2015 as this is when the earliest chronicle game started.
How much catch-up XP do I get per month?
You earn 2XP for every month the chronicle has been running. You can add it to your XP log at a rate of 8XP per month. This award is treated as Overcap XP, so you can still earn XP from games and downtimes as normal.
Full details of Catch-up XP are in the Universal Addendum.
