Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR. Particularly fond of GMless and short-form games because they suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment How are Legend Points from creatures split when one PC died in the fight?
This is almost always system-specific and therefore I've actually removed all mention of "system agnostic" from the question. (The question would have been closed as either "too broad" or "primarily opinion-based" if it were left system agnostic.) You may want to adjust the answer.

Are you asking about the D&D Next playtest rules? Or the published D&D 5th edition rules?
