  1. I believe the XP for magic items is for Making the item, not for just finding it in a dungeon, or shop. I do not award XP for magic items. a magic weapon makes it possible to gain experience in the future. I give 1 XP per GP obtained by the character, if they make a deal where they get a larger share, then they get more XP. If they sell anything they gain XP for it. Thieves get extra XP if they steal it, clerics get extra XP if they receive money to further their faith. They get XP for monsters, but if they are small numbers of weak monsters I drop the already low XP. If the tenth level fighter wants to be a rat catcher, that is fine with me, but it could take centuries to reach eleventh if all he is going to do is hunt Kobolds. If they complain, I simply advise them to pick on somebody their own size, can also be phrased as “Grow a pair!”

  2. I had a dm that would assign shares of xp to players at 1 share per level of experience. The rational was that lower level characters running with higher level characters were getting xp out of proportion to their contribution.
