Formula Dé RPG (working title)
The 3 Currencies
There are three earned resources in TITLE, expressed in terms of points: Money (MP), Experience (XP), and Respect (RP). Money Points are primarily used to repair damage to one’s vehicle between races, buy consumables (such as nitro), and buy better cars. Experience Points are only used to buy and upgrade Skills and Abilities. Respect Points, both the most fluid and the most fickle currency, are primarily used to qualify for better races and buy a better starting position before race start.
Both MP and RP can be spent in ways other than the ones described here, so long as the Referee agrees that it is a valid use. For example, instead of spending RP to buy a good spot, a player may try to use MP (at a greater cost) to secure the best position. Alternatively, a racer with a mechanic for a fan, or even a proper sponsor (both RP-related), might get an occasional deal (MP).
