Ours can be a… “difficult” relationship…
1 xp when Kent Nelson or Nabu discuss the relationship he has with the other.
3 xp when an argument errupts between Nabu and Kent Nelson.
10 xp when Kent Nelson decides to give-up the power of the Helm of Nabu once and for all to gain control over his life, or concedes that Nabu’s mission is paramount and agrees to be his vessel for as long as he needs it.

Stemming the Tide of Chaos
1 xp when (either as Kent Nelson or Nabu) you explain the nature of the war between Order and Chaos on the earthly plane to someone.
3 xp when you defeat an Agent of a Lord of Chaos.
10 xp when (as Nabu) you put a stop to the plans of a Lord of Chaos and banish that entity from the earthly plane, or (as Nelson) when you determine that the war between Order and Chaos is a futile one and allow the Lord of Chaos to remain on the earthly plane.


“Fool, your sorcerous power pales in comparison to that of a Lord of Order! LET THE LIGHT PREVAIL!!”
