Formula Dé RPG (working title)
Advancing and Upkeep
After a race, players will have earned XP and, ideally, MP. They can spend their accumulated XP at any time between races to buy or improve Skills and Abilities. They can also spend their MP to repair their car, buy consumables, or, if they have enough, buy a brand-new car.
The value of every car is measured in Build Points (BP). The more BP a car has, the better its overall stats are and can be. However, nicer cars are more expensive in every way; each car has a Cost Multiplier (CM) equal to its base BP divided by 5. For example, repairing a cheap car (BP = 5) will also be relatively cheap (CM = 5 / 5 = 1), but even basic repairs to a top-of-the-line car (BP = 30) will be exorbitantly expensive (CM = 30 / 5 = 6)
