Um. I am totally new to RPGs. I've only participated in ten or so campaigns. I suck as a player. My suckiness is magnified a thousand times over when I try to be a DM, or whatever you call it. Fortunately, I have patient friends.

I write the campaigns I run. I suck at that, too.

comment Do I apportion XP to NPC allies?
Ha! I see you have already posed it. I don't have a lot of experience with D&D. To me, a duet game is very different, but I guess it's not. I would also hate to turn that person's question away from its intended purpose. I can say, "Which option?" Then, "Why?" Then, "Are there other options?" And suddenly that question is about my question, instead of about theirs. Advice?

And the answer to the same situation is "You are correct." Unfortunately, the question said, "I can see two options." Which option is correct? Yes isn't a helpful answer to a multiple choice question.

comment Do I apportion XP to NPC allies?
With due respect, they're really different. That question deals primarily with the issue of NPCs that may or may not turn out to be allies of the PCs and what to do depending on how an encounter unfolds with those NPCs. I'm dealing with NPCs I introduced as allies out of combat. I also feel like the "duet" aspect of my question separates it from the other question. Or maybe it doesn't. Regardless, I'm not sure commenting on, or answering, a question with a question is a good idea. I would fully expect someone to comment on my comment, say that it is unrelated, and please make a new question.
