I know and they are not just 5 ... we only have 5 of them *now*
Sven himself specifictly told us that there are NOT all Origin characters implemented right now.
And there is a lot of dataminined evidence aswell.

They arent the only ones... just the first ones we get ...
Just as with the classes, sub-classes, races, and countless other stuff.

Problem here is that 300 xp is not for "a character" as you say ... its for default group wich is 4.
Therefore if you manage to defat that monster allone you should get 1200xp.

You see im not arguing about principle just about final numbers.
Your only misstake was using single character as default value in the world where everything (rewards included) is prepared for 4.

I realize this might seem like 3/3=6/6 argument ...
But final numbers matter ... unless you also alter amount of XP for levels.

By the way i love the idea and i think it should be implemented regarfless of party size ... just imagine you could attack Githyanki patrol either with 4x lvl4 or with 1 or 2x lvl 5 bcs you spread them for some encounters. ^_^
Sound great to me.

Might have second reason ...
Since you are supppse to take party members with you to zheir respeczive quests (still dont quite understand why are we unable to question Zoru oureselves) ... it would be awfull to drag level 1 to some combat situation.l

I still dont understand why cant we change Race for our hirelings. frown
Lets us play Githyanki as racist as they trully are! frown
