When can XP be spent?

Hello all. I’m new, and turning up with a bunch of new players to the forthcoming event, but I have a question about spending points. I read on the wiki that you can leave some of your 8 initial experience unspent, which seems like a great idea to me. I’m not exactly sure what I want to spend my last two points on because it depends largely on what kit I can buy at the event (or if anythign interesting catches my eye). My question is, can these ‘floating’ character points be spent during the event when I have figured out what kit I’m buying for my character? Or is this only possible during downtime (for fairly obvious administrative reasons).

If possible, I presume this is done with a visit to Game Control?

Here are the detailed rules: profounddecisions.co.uk/empi … dvancement

The quick summary is:
[ul]
]Yes, you can spend XP at the event/:m]
]You’ll need to roleplay learning/teaching the skill with a character who has it/:m]
]Once you’ve done that, come to GOD on Saturday morning or later to spend XP/:m]
]There are no explicit requirements for the teaching roleplay, but be reasonable/:m][/ul]

Thank you very much! I missed that section, under the character creation header.
