Scales of War
During an encounter the Dungeon Master (Me!) may (but not always) award a heroic moment token. I will only give away up to one per encounter. (But maybe none) The heroic moment token must be used in the same encounter and can be redeemed for either a standard action or a healing surge. Both the standard action and the healing surge are only good for the encounter.
Heroic Moment tokens are assigned when a character does something incredible or noteworthy in battle. An example would be a Dwarven cleric who saunters into battle and hits a Double headed Boar in the face for 165 points of damage. It doesn’t have to create that much damage, but it should be something epic. Something that turns the tide of the battle. Or just something really cool or clever for the encounter.
