  • XP for the Grand Lighthouse Ball

    Prepping for an eventual run of the Trilogy for my group.

    Re-reading Madness in the 5th Anniversary edition I cannot for the life of me locate any guidance on how to handle experience for the Grand Lighthouse Ball.

    Am I blind? If not, any of you folks have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Re: XP for the Grand Lighthouse Ball

    There doesn't appear to be any information on XP for the Lighthouse Ball in the book, and that's one question that didn't occur to me when I was updating the Trilogy for v.3.5.

    I would refer you to the "Story Awards" section of the DMG (p. 40). Note that the text for "CRs for Noncombat Encounters" emphasizes that an encounter must pose a challenge to the party for them to earn XP for it. If you go this route, I would suggest a single award for the event, based on how much useful information they get from various guests. If you don't want to bother setting a CR, then "Roleplaying Awards" would also be highly appropriate for the ball.

      I've added your question and my reply to the Freeport Trilogy page at my unofficial errata archive. You might find the rest of that page helpful, too, as you prepare.

      And I hope your group has a good time with the Trilogy! Mine certainly did, despite all the setbacks they had along the way.

        I'm familiar with it. That's what I checked first when I couldn't find anything in the book.
