Experience Awards

This page explains what to expect for experience awards in this campaign.

There are many ways in which a character can gain experience points in this campaign.

There are the typical encounter awards and several types of special awards.

The special awards are designed to encourage as much participation in the campaign as possible.

Awards are outlined to the right.

A special award is equal to the amount received during a standard encounter with a creature whose CR equals the character's Character Level as if the character was in a party of four (the bold number divided by four in Table 2-6 on page 38 of the DMG corresponding to the creature's CR).  i.e., a special award at 1st level equals 75 XP (300/4) or at 4th level equals 300 XP (1,200/4).  This basically works out to 75 x ECL.
