I plan to DM a game with a few friends
but i've read through books and i can't figure it out
at what set of XP does a character level? how do they level?
I feel so noobish...but help would be appreciated!

it was originally set for 4e with some 3.5e mixed in, but after playing with the 3.5e basic set im more geared toward 3.5
The formula for the XP needed to reach a certain level in 3.X is:
(Desired Level-1)X1000 plus the sum of each (previous level-1)X1000.
XP needed to reach 5th level=
1000 X ((1st level -1) + (2nd level -1) + (3 level -1) + (4th level -1) + (5th level -1)
= 10,000 XP

Which could be defined as N * (N-1) * 500 where N is the desired level.
For N = 5 it results in 5 * 4 * 500 = 10000 xp

i like that last version better. less math O.o;;
Thanks guys! That helped out a lot!
Again don't forget the table. It will be found in the first couple pages of the chapter on classes. It also points out when the characters get feats and attribute bumps
In retorspect if I was the editor, I would have placed it at the top of the page and made it stand out more. Then again the entire look and layout of the 3e core books sucks, always has, always will.
i would have to disagree. fun comes from what the players do in-game, not from the rules. they are suggestions after all, ignore what you don't like, use what you do.
