Persistent Action Points
Characters can spend money on things not otherwise covered that are of a more personal nature: luxuries, partying, charity, etc. This should be described in light detail: purchasing a trid system, going to a downtown nightclub, funding a soup kitchen, etc.
Players receive persistent action points when they do so. A persistent action point is like a normal action point except that, while it persists between sessions until spent, it does not count as an action point for determining if a player is out of action points at the start of the session and therefore deserving of the regular free action point.
Persistent action points are purchased one at a time, with a scaling cost determined as the table to the right. Buying a persistent action point requires enough time to perform the described action.
