I’m trying to locate details on awarding downtime and renown in the Curse of Strahd.
The Curse of Strahd DM’s Guide from Adventurers League says this about awarding renown (page 6):
Many adventures offer a renown award in the form of renown points for members of certain factions. Usually, this renown award will range from 0 to 2 points. Award renown points at the conclusion of an episode or adventure.
And about awarding downtime (page 6):
At the conclusion of each episode or adventure, award downtime days to each character. Adventures typically award 10 downtime days at the end of the episode or adventure unless otherwise specified.
The book is divided into 15 Chapters plus the Death House mini-adventure. In my view it would be much clearer to stipulate that each CoS “chapter” should be treated as an “episode or adventure” for the purposes of DT and Renown calulations but, since I can’t find that exact wording, I’m left wondering.
So, what counts as an “episode or adventure” for the purpose of how to award Downtime and Renown in Curse of Strahd?
