Are we going to level up any time soon? I know some DMs pace their PbP games differently in terms of giving levels. It isn't uncommon for a DM to give out levels to his players every month of game-play, while others make their players wait for almost a year.
Are we going to level up together, or separately, based on the amount of use our skills have been put to?
I tend to go by how fast the story is going (more events=faster gain). Each of you levels at your own rate, but things should stay mostly even.
Also, now that you have me thinking about it, everyone should have got some XP from the battle before. 800 XP sounds right to me, so each of you should add that to your totals now.
