The Eldest Journal
There are moments in a battle when heroes are made. When a milestone occurs, one party member (determined randomly) instantly gains a hero point, and all party members gain a +2 to their recharge rolls until the end of their next turn. If a party member has no active powers with the recharge keyword, then he gains the benefit of Power Surge until the end of his next turn. Some examples of milestones are as follows:
- The first time in a combat a party member drops below 0.
- Whenever a party member dies.
- The first time in a combat a solo monster becomes bloodied.
- Whenever an elite or solo monster is defeated.
- Other moments, at the DM’s discretion.
- Interrupting the Evil Wizards in the middle of their Ritual.
- Maneuvering past the Evil Cleric’s minions to blow out the Dark Candles that have desecrated the Altar of Pelor.
- Slaying the Hobgoblin Lieutenant who led the attack on a village.
- Any other major moment or significant accomplishment that the party experiences.
- Whenever a party member hears Yoshinori say, “Dirk Codpiece!”
