Of course, characters in the world of Remnants are not static. As they learn to live in the new, apocalyptic world, characters hone their abilities, improve their skills, and gain new ones. There is only one way to improve a character’s abilities or skills: By roleplaying!
Upon completing threads, players may claim ability increases for their characters. To claim an ability increase, see this thread. These increases, generally, are defined by the type of type of thread. These thread types are as follows, along with the ability increases that may be claimed upon their completion. For each thread type, players may choose which ability increase they wish to claim. If a character has over 10 posts in one thread, they may claim both ability increases.
Exploration includes threads in which the character explores parts of Seattle or the outside world where they have not been before. These threads may include meeting new people, or getting into dangerous situations. +1 ADJ OR +1 INT
Scavenging includes threads in which the character searches the outside world for useful resources. This may include searching for food, books, weapons, or other useful items. +1 AWR OR +1 ADJ
Combat includes threads in which the character engages in combat with another character, an animal, or a stranger. While combat may occur in other threads, a thread is only categorized as combat if it is the central focus. For example, a duel between two characters would be a combat thread, while a thread where characters are attacked while exploring would still be an exploration thread. +1 STR OR +1 AGY
Interaction includes threads in which characters converse with, attempt to persuade, or argue with another character. This may also include a thread in which a character gives a speech. +1 CHR OR +1 INT
Plot is a special thread category, and includes any thread that is part of a larger plot. +1 ANY
General is a special thread category, intended to apply to any thread that falls outside the other categories. This category should be used sparingly-- try to think again, is there another category your thread could fit into? +1 ANY
Unlike abilities, there is no in-world way to gain skills. Instead, improving skills or gaining new skills is done through purchasing a special advantage from the Point Shop.
