Characters as User Accounts

Treat a character account as a user account with its own

Player Event Triggering

Leverage the SPAWNPOINT Game Rules Engine
{trigger-condition(s)-event(s)} to take action in real-time as a player state evolves. Automate messaging on level changes, broadcast experience events, update item entitlements, and more – anything that you can define against our API endpoints, sophistication condition engine, and stackable events.
