Alternate Boon structure document

Mostly inspired by the "The State of Boons" thread, this is a restructuring of the old boon documents from player level up rewards to more GM focused rewards.  While most feedback didn't seem that interested since this is mostly an adjustment as opposed to a ton of new material, figured I might as well post it for those who might be able to use it.

I must admit... Having Boons be more set up to work as a GM handled thing could be better as a whole for the system.

Can you clarify what you mean by that Xel? I'm interested.

I find boons to be a neat feature of the system... But after a while the only thing that is really cared about is the mechanics it can give people. There's like zero flavor reasoning ever if any for what to pick from and even then, most of the newer set are hard to flavor into being anything other then an extra game mechanic that the group can use for help or something. But if the boons were retooled into being a type of GM rewards system. That'd help the system in two ways I figure, 1) helps give the GM ideas on what to do, or just helping in some minor ways (something this system lacks majorly is ANY GM help...) 2) makes it easier for the GM and players to feel like they're being rewarded for what they do in-game.

Then again, I don't have high hopes of such ideas getting in any way helpful given what I've seen happen over my time with this game system.

Actually, creating a set of pre-designed GM-Rewards has often been a thing we've talked about - and were actually one of our plans when not importing boons to the new system.
