....you go to give out xp at the end of the session and are looking for the monster's Credit Rating.

I never give out XP at the end of the game for D&D, I always mail out a spreadsheet (in PDF format). Werewolf is a lot easier :)

The way I do it is add all the monster mashing xp up and then divvy it out to the players. I then give an xp bonus for good acting, plot progression, good ideas, and crazy and humourous actions/words.

That is one part I always hated.

Do you give XP for a group or per player based on what they did? Example: Joe kills an Orc and he gets the XP. Eric was there but because his mage is getting punched out nearly every game session (no joke) he gets nothing.

no offense but that's bullshit. 3 / 3.5s xp awards chart is made to be split upon the participants of the fight (those who survive anyway) all survivors, near death, died and resurrected, deserve their cut of the xp. awarding the xp to he who slays the beast is just vile. character will then lag behind others, throwing off the balance of the group drastically. the lack of xp, thus the lack of leveling, is probably why the mage is "getting punched out nearly every game session."

...or he just can't build a mage and I read into your comment wrong. If so, pleave forgive. I'm tired.

No problem.
What I was posting was a sort of example. One of the few times I got to take a break from running games, the DM broke up XP that way. I totally agree with you and that is why I did not stay in the game very long (that and I saw no reason why he was throwing a lich at us when we were level 3).

Eric's "Instant Sleep Spell" as it was known was pretty funny and the focus of many jokes.

aaah.. I see. well, yea, forgive me again.

I'm surprised the gm of that game had any players at all... the idea of awarding xp like that is just effed beyond all reason.
I couldn't tell if you were showing how you give xp (which I'm glad to see you don't) or what.

now when a character watches everyone fight and makes no move ti get involved, no xp!

The instant sleep spell is pretty funny. sounds like the kid could use some advice on making an effective mage.

:) No prob.
If I gave out XP like this I should be beaten publicly with all my books.

As for the Mage well...I can't even tell you the trouble he would get into. How he made it as far as he did I don't know.

I meant that as a joke, but the calculator's going to be pretty handy, so thanks!
(P.S. I love your icon!)
