Inspiration and Boons – Expanded mechanic for 5e and other d20 games

 

INSPIRATION AND BOONS

for 5e or other d20 games

Inspiration and Boons are awarded by the DM to a player for good roleplaying such as playing out personality traits, giving in to drawbacks from a flaw or bond as well as actions that contribute to the story in a fun and interesting way.
A player may have no more than one Boon or Inspiration token.  The token can be given to another player.  The DM should feel free to choose the specific boon to award or may allow the players to select one blind from a bag.  Any other specific limitations or parameters are listed in Crunch.  The DM has final say on any use of a Boon.
