All characters will also gain experience over time.
  
 For an inactive character to gain experience, it must have a name, gender, race and class defined. It isn't necessary to detail the character beyond this until it is actually used in play, but it allows that character to start gaining experience. For an inactive character to gain experience, it must have a name, gender, race and class defined.

 +A player has a choice either to grant 75% of gained XP to a single inactive character, or to give two inactive characters 50% each. For example, if a player has three characters, Alice, Bob and Eve, and Eve goes on an adventure and gains 1000 XP, then the player can also give Alice //or// Bob 750 XP, or give Alive //and// Bob 500 XP. In either case, Eve gains the full 1000 XP.
