Quest XP Rewards

When a group of adventurers completes a major quest, each character receives an XP reward equal to the value for a single threat of the quest’s level. This is an exception to the general rule that characters divide all XP rewards evenly among themselves. For instance, each adventurer receives 125 XP for completing a 2nd-level major quest.
    A minor quest typically counts as a single threat of the quest’s level, which is divided among the adventurers as normal. For instance, each adventurer in a group of five receives 20 XP for completing a 1st-level minor quest. If the DM wants a minor quest to carry more weight, he or she can award XP to each adventurer equal to as much as one-half the value of a single threat of the quest’s level. Using this alternative awards 50 XP to each adventurer for that 1st-level minor quest.
    A quest’s level is typically equal to the level of the characters in the adventuring group when they complete the quest, but the DM can decide to adjust its level (and thus the XP reward characters gain for completing it) upward or downward to reflect its difficulty and significance.
    The Quest XP Rewards table summarizes the XP value of major quests. It also includes a range of XP values for minor quests.
