Experience And Gaining Levels

Every time a character goes on an adventure he learns something. He may learn a little more about his physical limits, encounter a creature he has never seen before, try a spell as yet unused, or discover a new peculiarity of nature. A character also improves by increasing his power -as levels are gained, new hit points, more spells, or a better chance to hit with an attack can be achieved. These gains are made by earning experience points (XP). An experience point is a concrete measure of a characters improvement. It represents a host of abstract factors: increased confidence, physical exercise, insight and on-the-job training. When a character earns enough experience points to advance to the next experience level, these abstract factors translate into a measurable improvement in the abilities of the character. Just what areas improve and how quickly improvement occurs all depend on the characters class.
