The Fading Realms
All experience rewards and leveling will take place between sessions. Character’s that earn enough experience to level do so immediately. Most benefits are immediate save those that typically require rest to be available. Specifically:
- Max hit points per level for levels 1-3
- Average hit points per level for 3-20
- Hit points, base attack bonus, save bonus, skill points, feats, and class level features are gained immediately
- Spells per day, turn undead attempts, uses bardic music, and all other x/day abilities require rest. I.e.: you gain the slots to cast more spells, but you can’t make use of those slots until you rest.
If the party ends a session by resting, any character levels earned are considered to be applied before the rest; providing the full benefit of the level.
