With an AD&D beastie like this, that states hp, but not Hit Dice...
How do you run this in combat? Is that 88hp supposed to be a maxxed out HD11? I have never understood how this is supposed to work in gameplay and it's bugged me for about 20 years(*).
Mentzer Fighter needs 2000xp to get to 2nd level.
B/X Fighter needs 2000xp to get to 2nd level.
OD&D Fighting Man needs 2000xp to get to 2nd level.
Swords & Wizardry Core Rules Fighter needs 2000xp to get to 2nd level.
Swords & Wizardry White Box Fighting Man needs 2000xp to get to 2nd level.
Labyrinth Lord Fighters needs 2035xp to get to 2nd level.
Where does that 35 come from and more importantly, what's so significant about it that it justifies changing something of a tradition in D&D? Why did somebody think, I know it's important to change that 2000 to 2035? In fact, what is up with LL xp anyway? And the required amounts to level up are all to cock so that a Dwarf requires the bizarre figure of 2187 to reach level 1 and a Magic-User requires 2501 just to be bloody awkward.
What on Earth is the thinking behind this?
(*) EDIT - Suddenly releases that 20 years ago is only actually late 1991. Make it more like 25.
