Welcome to Dying Sun Redemption, take a look at the adventure log and the wiki if you like.
xp for monsters 750, bonus 1000 to nina for trap detection. 1000 each to the group for locating and solving key lock to bonus level! SNRK
Valen getting caught Again and his managing to get free, 200, Nina’s “it’s trapped, and locked? ok we’re good to go!” comment was hilarious, 200 bonus. Dustin’s continuing to play dumb is funny, but warrants no bonus xp.
Valen getting upset about being immobilized, and the interaction with the new member of the crew… 300, Sandeep’s expert tactics in fighting Dragons and moral debate over usage of the bodies… even when the mother would know all about it even if they didn’t cut it up… was interesting 250, Nina’s “I’m sorry i can’t hear you” as well as her ‘assuming’ she has control over her sword was interesting 250. Thildigg’s preparation for non-undead and interest in anything runes… 200. Kitrick’s banter with the sword… 300.
session before… roleplay bonuses… conflict resolutions 200 for vlon’s cool deprecating manner, 150 for thildigg’s controlled ire. Nina’s obliviousness to the problem with vlon’s race is par for the course. Blowing up of the brothel… 250xp each, in addition to the notoriety points handed out already. Sandeep is not penalized for having no character sheet but neither does he gain roleplay bonuses. finding cover and fighting bad guys (spectres) the group (sans vlon) recieves 400 xp. vlon’s player not present, no xp for YOU!
Experience from combat 250 each, puzzle resolution 500 each. these totals are for the four participating. roleplay xp, 100 for Vlon for levitating until resolution of evil, 400 for vlon for initial idea about penetrating back wall. 200 each for nina and thildigg for nearly killing nina. 200 for Sandeep for aiding the drow and finishing the task. 200 for nina finally reaching out to a higher source outside of loki. bonus 500 to sandeep for his help outside the game helping create characters.
ok…. pure monster xp is 1000 each.
Roleplay was pretty good,
“she don’t smell like Nina” and “get your ass over there and defend from these..” goes to sandeep for 300
“you want to spar? oh ok…” slowly drags out daggar only to be hugged. nina’s return and week before rp. 500
“do you see what’s happening to the church” baffled guard and baffled elf with Valen, ponder the meaning of ancient elf. ‘auntie nina’ 550 to valen
“what am i supposed to do? i keep hearing i’m supposed to do this great thing but NO ONE WILL TELL ME WHAT IT IS!!!!” 550
ok. pure monster experience is 650 each. i’ll grant another 1000 xp each for mini-story arc completion. (acquiring of the book)
out of character comments Chantelle for “Times that by 3 and you get a Dead Nina” you don’t get an award but it was memorable.
Dwarven Rage by Thildigg 200xp, saving of Valen 50 xp.
“I took a rock to the side of the head looking out for the dragon’s return” Sandeep and “I’m not hiding, i’m getting cover from the dragon’s breath” 200xp getting rid of the dangerous party member while losing a brother for a second time at the same time … 100xp
Valen “i’m fast and i’ve been able to stand in most fights without so much as a scratch, but this guy downed me in two swipes” 225 for learning that having no armor should mean that you wait for the rest of the group to act together.
Should Nina Return to the land of the living, she’ll get a total of 500 for mini=completion arc and 200xp for her help in the cyclops war. 100xp for her deal with Loki.
The look of shock on everyone’s face when Nina was split in two….. priceless.
after reviewing the roleplaying and the monster fight, i’m granting 1850 xp each. primarily just pure dumb luck in going right to the required room is kinda funny. lots of interesting interaction… but i am too tired to list individual roleplay rewards… so the blanket award above.
Ok, Monster experience is 1200 each.
Roleplaying / learning curve xp.
Solem “oops i set the room on fire” northwind gets the learning curve reward for getting the party pissed at him for not thinking before casting. 200 xp
Thildigg “cajun cooking” Yurlin gets the ’box blocked" award nuff said 120 xp.
Satinder “straight arrow” Ranger gets the ’I got thrown across a room but i can shoot your ass in vital areas award. 100 xp
Nina “ninja reflexes” Ariget for dodging shit she cannot find 75 xp
Sandeep “lightning is my thing” vanguard for choosing new and interesting ways to use that breath of doooooom. and slamming but not hurting solem. 125 xp
Valen “wtf is the damn spider doing” monk with a broadsword for beating down the door before the spider got it sealed 100 xp
soooo…. y’all let me know when you want to play again. as for the last game. i’m going to give 500xp to each of y’all for roleplay and driving off a big bad beastie without actually killing it. except for nina who only gets 200xp for trying to save her own ass and actually did NOTHING to help the group.
Ok… adding up the crs and the challenges i came up with a surprising total
Pure creature xp is 800. Interrogation xp for the party i’ll award 75xp, the reaction on your faces when talking to the idiot goblin was priceless to me… up to roleplay awards each get 875, the challenge was significant, and if they were more organized they could have killed one or two of you before departing. but what do you expect from goblins?
Nina “scared straight” Ariget for singing to the boys(the gm finally found something she cares more about than herself) 50xp
Sandeep “rocks have more personality” Vanguard for fighting with Solem about WHEN you’re going to kill the prisoner. 75xp
Valen “oh yes they call him the streak” for dashing through the battle 50 xp
Satinder “goblin dogs suck balls” ranger for NOT damaging his weapon in a fight and having the cajones to argue with higher level people about what should be done. 150 xp
Thildigg I’ve got valen’s bastard sword and i’m interrigating the damn prisoner!!!" Yurlin 200 xp for intimidating the little bastard and imitating goblin.
Solem “we’re going to interrogate the little yellow bastard as soon as i get the damn mud off my ass” Northwind 100 xp for wanting to protect AND kill the little human eating wretch.

Now, i’ve added Nina’s trap disable and lock pick xp to Group totals because as a group they would have to pull your fat out of the fire should you fail to dodge out of the way. And, let’s face it, you botched more than you succeeded.
I’ve determined our character advancement will run off of table 3-1 on page 30 of core rule book, placing the group at approximately 1/3 of the way to level 2.
