I am currently playing a party game with the rules from the companion with one of my friends. I have two questions :
1/How is the reward/penalty of the quest shared among the characters ?
a/The reward is just one and all the characters equally share a part of it.
b/The reward is for each character (e.g. +50 gp per character)
c/The reward is only shared among questers (same as a/ but only for questers)
d/The reward is for each quester (same as b/ but only for questers)
(And, depending on the answer above, how to deal with rewards like +1 REP or +5 skill ?)
2/Are the quest requirements altered by the number of characters ? For example, in the Monster Cull quest, do two questers need to fight 20 monsters 34 or higher, or do they need to kill only 10 ?
(In my opinion, since only one character can search an area, I would say neither the quest requirements are altered nor the reward, which is a reward for the whole quest, no matter how many characters deal with it in the same time).
