Re: Awarding XP

I do awarding xp at the end of the session but leveling is done between adventures during what is considered downtime. This lets them spend their gold on their training and buy or have better equipment crafted for them. Magic-users get to spend time doing their studies for spells, clerics do their t...

Re: 2 Questions

Back when I started with B/X it was an issue of one side would get to go before the other side but we also failed to consider this is all happening at the same time. The initiative is more of mechanic to help with figuring out who goes first in declaring their actions. All results happen at the same...

Re: 2 Questions

Using the B/X won't truly break anything but you might notice that if the monster's side get to go first, they might wreck havoc on the PCs and if the PC side goes first, there is a good chance that the PCs will end the fight without being hurt. Now one alternative I have used is take the highest DE...

If you and your players are having fun then you are not doing anything horribly wrong.
