    Okay, so I'm beginning to really plan out the encounters you are going to face. I started with the Dungeon Master's Guide which describes four difficulty levels of encounters: easy, medium, hard, and deadly. The DMG describes a "deadly" encounter as: "A deadly encounter could be lethal for one or more player characters. Survival often requires good tactics and quick thinking, and the party risks defeat." For purposes of this game, virtually every fight will be a deadly encounter since it doesn't matter if your character dies. (Again, all you need to do is kill the monster. If everyone dies, you get to try again. More on this will be explained in the prologue section once everyone makes their way over to the forum.)

    The chart on page 82 of the DMG gives the XP Thresholds by Character Level for deadly encounters. For example, starting at level 1, a deadly encounter is one worth 400 experience for four 1st-level characters (100 XP per character). This corresponds to a Challenge Rating 2 monster worth 450 XP. So, your first fight will probably be against a CR 2 monster.

    The chart I made, which is also posted below, shows the number of fights you will have to win at each level based on the XP threshold for deadly encounters and the amount of experience you need to gain in order to level up. For example, at level 1, the four of you will need to survive 3 deadly encounters (400 XP each) in order to gain the 1,200 XP you collectively need to reach level 2. At level 2, you will need to survive another 3 deadly encounters (800 XP each) to gain the 2,400 XP you collectively need to reach level 3.

    Note that you actually end up a little bit over your experience requirement to reach level 2. Three CR 2 monsters are worth 450 XP each for a total of 1,350 XP. Collectively, you need 300 XP each or 1,200 total so you end up with 150 extra XP (37.5 XP each).

    Likewise, at level 2, a deadly encounter is 800 XP worth of monsters. A CR 3 monster is worth 700 XP while a CR 4 monster is worth 1,100 XP. This means that you end up a little short of your 2,400 XP needed if you face three CR 3 monsters (2,100 XP) and you end up a little over if you face a two CR 3 monsters and one CR 4 monster (2,500 XP). So you'll probably end up facing two CR 3 monsters and one CR 4 monster to ding level 3.

    Interestingly, the XP needed to level up is not consistently linear. Most of the levels required 4-5 combats to level up, but there is a segment between levels 4 and 10 where you need 7-8 combats to level up due to the increased XP requirements. I will refer to this segment, which is highlighted in red on the chart, as the "grind."

    Also, note that this is all subject to change based on a number of factors, including whether we pick up any more players, what kind of epic loot you guys can score to "punch above your weight class," etc. Anyways, this gives you an idea of where the game is headed as far as number of fights per level and approximately which CR monsters you are looking at for each level.

    I want to point out that, on Tuff's image, that thing in her hand isn't her weapon. It's her holy symbol. It's a flat, wooden cut-out painted to resemble the flaming sword of Tempus. That giant thing on her back is her actual sword.
