So I’ve been thinking about character advancement lately and I realized that there are only two games where I actually like the character advancement model: Amber and Don’t Rest Your Head. Unfortunately, characters in Amber relies on simple character sheets with only a handful of items to track and there are fairly large point gaps between each advancement. In other words, it’s almost the exact opposite from In Nomine. That leaves Don’t Rest Your Head. In many ways the DRYH character is even simpler than the Amber character… at least to begin with. However, characters in Don’t Rest Your Head can literally advance towards anything so long as their progress is story driven.
