All 2014 Origins BI Certs have been sent out. Please let me know if there is an error in the names on any of them, as sadly not everyone wrote legibly.

Additionally, there is one person who's e-mail was incorrect (or is currently bouncing for other reasons). If you have not received a BI Cert yet, this is probably you. Please PM me on here and I will endeavour to get it to you.

For the judges, I'll get yours out soon.

Only 100xp? That's atypical for a BI.

James mention that PCI wants to avoid having the regular con-goers far surpassing others for xp. When I spoke to him at Origins he said it was going to be zero xp awarded, so don't complain too loudly about the 100 ;)

From what I've heard, with the move to making BIs con-exclusive, it was decided that they needed to not give as much xp so as to allow non-con-goers to stay close to con-goers in tier.

I wasn't expecting a lot of xp (my guess was 200-250). The 2Gc is nice. The special Fate point is nice.

I was really hoping that the Khan would be grateful enough to offer us an exceptional item though (given that we did just save his city and that he now has many fewer troops needing any exceptional items)... But I knew that was probably a long shot... Guess it's back to planning to wait years to purchase exceptional gear (30Gc for Tralian Hammer, 25Gc for Tower Shield, and 38Gc for Ss'ressen Scale)...

Considering that there was that section in the BI where they mentioned that the Tultipetan rune smiths had figured out how to put runes onto skin, I was really hoping for a rune on the body. A single use fate point (even with the additional uses) is a little disappointing.

A rune on the body would have been very cool but I didn't expect that to be on offer.

I'm of two minds on the 100xp bit. I understand the reasoning but I'm also a bit put out for getting only 100 xp for all the real world time and money I spent to go to the con, not to mention the time spent with my butt in the chair at the BI. I'll have to give it some thought, but if this is what the future holds I might just pass on Origins and play games at home. I'm not a big Larper as far as Arcanis Larps go so there's no draw there. And I have yet to read the cert (I'm at work), but when told about the boon my reaction was (along with the guy who told me about it) "I'd rather have the XP." I didn't play the first arc so I'm catching up and need all the xp I can get. I was the lowest tier person at our table as I recall and haven't cracked Tier 2 yet. I was counting on the usual 500xp to get me at least to 1.9. And he's a 1.5 character so I can't mine the old mods for xp.

Now that all that's said I do want to be clear....I bear no ill will towards PCI on this decision. After all it's just a game and as long as we're having fun that's all that matters. And I had a lot of fun at Origins. Just wish I could have gotten 500xp out of the BI.... :(

Vastly increased chance of death AND effectively no useful reward? WTF? Seriously WTF? 100XP!? W. T. F. ???

The risk/reward ratio is completely out of balance. A Fate Point is NOT worth that amount of time/danger involved. Arcanis used to be about cinematic, over-the-top, and characters who do other things than combat brutes. These recent decisions seems to make it go towards a gritty, combat-heavy campaign, with a background of storyline. If I wanted to play Warhammer, I would be playing Warhammer...

There are already too many of those campaigns out there.

I am more than disappointed. My enjoyment of this campaign is dropping fast. System vs. story... The balance is shifting. Not in a good way.

Beyond disappointed.

So, I am still of two minds about the X.P. on the interactives. In general, I would probably go with the, "you sat in two slots worth of module, you get two module's worth of X.P." but I would balance that with the chance of getting other unique rewards. I would ask that such decisions be advertised in advance so players can make informed decisions in the future. I specifically played a character in this who is trying to get as much X.P. in as few modules as possible right now because I thought it would count as one module and get 500+ X.P. To find out I probably should have played a different character based on campaign policy changes (something I think it is fair to announce in advance) is a bit disappointing.
