XP awards for NPC's?

Post by Witterquick »

My PC's are attacking human NPC's with class levels. How would you calculate XP awards?

If it helps, here's a sketch of the 2 NPC's:

human F2 S17 D16 Co17 I12 W10 Ch12

Equipment: broadward, full chain mail suit, lg steel shield

human Cl2 S13 D9 Co12 I10 W17 Ch15

Equipment: scythe, steel breastplate

no magical items.

Thanks for the assist.

I agree, this is exactly how I've done it in my games, with the exception I've added a "kicker" to bonus XP for NPC types. IMO a 1st level fighter NPC going up against a 1st level PC is a tough fight, and one that would merit more then baseline monster HD XP. I've just been Ad Hoc-ing this type of XP, but so far it's been about and additional 15% more then straight monster HD.

Thanks for the assist. I'm running my first C&C game tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.

Spellcasters are going to be worth a fortune of xp's.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

So, in my scenario, would the fighter get one type I bonus (fighting with a specialized weapon) while the cleric would get a bonus for each spell (what is that, six or something?)

Good to know, and thanks again.

P.S. first session went well, at least relatively speaking.

I think it would be a service to the CK if there was a chart that listed the XP value of all the classes, from levels 1 - 12, so the CK wouldn't have to figure this stuff out at the end of the night when players are tired and want to go home, yet still want their XP.
