I'm starting up a Battlestations group so I recently read through the rules. One thing I can't discern is whether or not experience is divided amongst the players, or everyone gets the full amount.

That is, if you get 50 for attempting and 100 for completing a mission you get 150 experience. Now, say there are 3 players. Do they each get 50 or do they all get the full 150?

Based on the wording (and the relatively small rewards) I'm inclined to say the answer is 150, but it's still ambiguous.

Thanks for your response!

That should be the experience that each surviving person gets. They also get an amount of credits and prestige equal to the experience. Killed crewmembers do not get experience but they do gain prestige for going out in a heroic manner.

Yep, everyone gets the full points. And possibly more with some abilities and cyberware which might add bonus to prestige, credits or XP.

A quick question about Showdown

Is this correct?

50xp for trying + 100 for completion + 50 for overwhelming success + 5x15 for enemy warship captured = 275 exp = 275 prestige. Credits = 275 prestige + 5x100 for selling captured warship = 775 credits

Re: Experience Distribution
LAte reply but I just found out the answer to this question.

In showdown you don't get any extra xp for caputring/destroying the mission objective, nor extra credits. That's only for ships beyond the scope of the mission.

If say another ship arrived to assist the target and you destroyed that, then you get the size x 10 exp.

Do the players really get 50 for attempting + 100 for completing a mission?

I always thought it was either "50 for attempting and failing" or "100 for attempting and completing".

Any official word on this?
