In the new version of Hackmaster, it suggests that you award -12 to +16 honor to each character over the course of a level. It suggests doing this by rating the character as per the 1-10 rating and the chart for Adherence to Alignment, Adherence to Class, Defense of Personal Honor, and General Roleplaying, as per Chapter 6.
However, the problem is that I don't know of a good way to do this when those guidelines reflect the amount that should be handled out over the course of an entire character level, while the honor awards are suggested to be given out at the end of every session. Since I never know exactly how many sessions it will take the party to level up, I don't have a good way to know how much to give out at the end of a given session to make sure I end up at the appropriate per-level amount.
I care about this and it is important to make sure I'm not over-awarding or under-awarding honor per level because the higher honor levels, such as Great Honor and Legendary Honor, have very tight windows and some classes such as Knight and Paladin tie into those levels. I don't want to make it too easy or too hard to play such a class due to my mismanagement of honor rewards.
