Reward Points can be spent in-game to buy Practices; Energy, Health, Hunger or Thirst refills; game bucks; emergency Items such as torches; premium game Items; to make premium Roles available; to customize your Player House; to make an emergency recall to Sanctuary Island; and an ever-increasing list of other desirables.
Reward points are earned out-of-game for referring friends to SmartMonsters. You'll automatically earn Reward Points as your referred friends develop their characters. Each time any character created by a friend you've referred gains a Level, you'll receive Reward Points equal to the Level gained. That is, when a friend's character reaches level 5 you'll receive 5 Reward Points; at level 20, 20 points. Multiply this by the number of friends you bring into the game, and it can become a pretty attractive source of spiffage.
They're earned in-game by contributing to the virtual world. Building new content; suggesting new features; reporting obscure bugs. There are also caches of RPs inside the game world, although, trust us, they're challenging to find.
Of course you can also buy reward points, which is TriadCity's sole source of income. You may be shocked to learn that we appreciate it very much when you do.
Reward Points can be used by any of your TriadCity characters. Use the intuitively-named rewardpoints command to see how many you've accumulated, or to redeem them any time you like.
