+Vincent Florio and I were bouncing some observations of awarding experience points back and forth throughout the day today. Although there are definite rules that cover awarding expo in the various editions of D&D and it's clones, it seems to be one of the things that is most often houseruled.
Some folks keep the gold recovered for expo - some don't, or they tweak the way it's awarded.
Some award expo for cool acts, or doing something in character, or great roleplay, or achieving goals and the like.
Some go the 2e way, and award expo for actions that are class related.
Yes to expo for magic items found and kept or no?
Tweaks depending on the frequency of the group gaming - more often, smaller rewards, less often, greater rewards.
How do you award expo? Do you go by the book or do you have your own houserules? If you go by the book, which edition or clone's rules do you follow? Is it the same as the edition you are actually running?
Inquiring minds want to know ;)
