Hi there,

currently my group is done with the "Darkest Hour" which will be followed up by "Cleansing of Black Spur". Unfortunately since beginning playing FC I used to hand out levels in certain intervals... shortly before The Darkest Hour I decided to use XP again. Mostly because some want levels fast, others slower and I don't want to be caught in arguments... so anyone can be happy.

Nevertheless... during the calculation of the xp I think that some old habit of D&D reared its head. Since they slaughtered their way through the adventure - no sneak, and generally more combat heavy - they racked up quite the ravener body count. Something in the 40 to 50 raveners.

Since this isn't D&D you don't take the number of slain raveners and multiply it by threat level, right? Seriously, I hope I am on the right track... otherwise the numbers seem weird to me. Huh?

As always any opinion is appreciated. Smiley

Howdy! I think XP calculation for Standard adversaries is Standard NPC XP x Threat Level x Number of Mobs defeated, where 1 mob = # of PCs including Personal lieutenants and Animal Partners. At least that is how I've been doing it.
Hope this helps!

How many people in the party?

for the sake of easy math examples...
Lets say party of 5 people, that is 8 packs of Raveners.
65 XP for each Pack of Raveners..times the adventures threat level, again, for easy math, Im going to assume level 1 adventurers.
5 Level 1 Characters on a Menace II adventure have a TL of 1.
65xp per pack defeated times the adventure threat level, + the story XP rewards they completed, should give you a much lower number than you are seeing right now.

for just the Raveners it would be 325xp per player.

Hi there,

as one of the guys involved in crushing a lot of undead heads... we are 2 Heroes, each level 3 right now and barely have survived the special characters, 2 times very near death Smiley

We were mostly lucky, acting first, getting not that much hits and a GM who forgot some feats at the first fights.

So 4875 XP for 50 Raveners, (packs of two, TL of 3) Per party member.  Plus story awards. They are now level 5 for Cleansing of Black Spur Smiley

Thank you for the help, guys.

I overlooked the part with the mobs... now it works out.

Thanks again.
