Style Points, and how they can be spent

Postby wastevens » Sat May 22, 2010 9:05 am

I just sped through the Houses of the Blooded PDF, looking for every mention of Style Points, to figure out all the ways in which they can be spent- since I can't find a single unified list anywhere else.

The only other thing that comes to mind that I don't see on your list is that you can give a style point to the narrator as kudos. (There may be a caveat about giving it to the narrator by way of an NPC or something but this is off the top of my head.)

Thanks for the list, it is uber helpful to see it all laid out in one place!

True, you can give Style points to an NPC you like. (Or really hate)

I daresay this list needs to be stickied or something for easy reference.

Good point, and done! Have a Style Point! ;)

Very good resource. If someone didn't already give the OP a style point, I would have.
However, as it stands, I have better uses for the style point now... ;)
