    Thanks for the input so far.
    Chapter 13: rewards, page 326. Read from that onward. Give it a thorough look to get the picture and judge for yourself.

    Also slightly unrelated note: do not let your players read from gming stuff onwards. It contains chapters of secrets of thedas, adversaries and the rewards. They dont need to know about those.

    Thanks. I'll check that out.

    As for the players reading ahead, that shouldn't be a problem. I'm the only one with a copy of the book.

    Specific question. Do the Organization rules play well?

    One plot I wanted to explore was to have a Bann or Arl assign the party to clear out and recover a village that was abandoned during the Fifth Blight. I figured I would used the Organization rules to represent the village. Let the players assign points to the various attributes to reflect their characters' priorities, and so on. This might let the players who are into story and politicking to shine.

    Yeah, but iirc it's just the same half-finished rule which was terrible to begin with. Yay, here's a talent point that you already have!

    Honestly, we haven't really used them. AGE rules are very combat centric. The organizational rules are a separate entity entirely. And D-AGE doesn't really have instant travel or communication, so if your party travels it's difficult to stay in touch.

    My party has been using the Organization rules quite often considering they are now run in a nation, and I love the Organization rules. Currently they are mostly used as a way to let the players know how their nation is faring, and I'll eventually. We'd their nation's stats for the final climactic encounter with the elven army of Brecilia and the demon armies of the big bad!

    They are mostly supposed to be something that lets you track Organzations as a background feature, with the stats being kept in the background. My campaign has them front and center because running the Organization is very important to the story.
