While XP penalities aren't official, page 86 of the DMG does say levelling up is at DMs discretion (so could be denied) and explicitly gives fairly major penalties in terms of training time and cost.

Ah, I'd forgotten the no XP caveat (which makes complete sense, the character is acting out of type) which would be supported by stuff the DMG says too.

comment House Rules for AD&D Character Generation (1e+)
@MadHatter - sorry, didn't notice your question. I'm definitely in favour of the "heroes not super heroes" mantra. I hate the idea of overpowered characters but do think the average for a PC should probably be slightly higher than average for the wider population if that makes sense? So I'm in favour of 17, 16, 15, 12, 10, 8 type spreads of ability scores, against 18, 17, 16, 16, 13, 10.
