We're playing D&D 3.5 and currently, our party is lvl 5. Someone wanted to join the party, and after a lot of haggling our DM agreed to let him start at lvl 4. Is there a way to let the party decide how the XP is distributed around the different party-members?
For instance, let's say there are 5 party members and we receive a total of 5000 XP. Can we decide to divide this XP so that Player 1 gets 900, player 2 gets 850, player 3 gets 1100, player four gets 1075 and player 5 gets 1075?
