Default Re: XP per Session: Session Length

Yes, especially if they are well-balanced deadly fights. The XP from well-matched serious arena combats will tend to mean anyone surviving many of those may have been through just as much (or maybe more) serious danger than some RPG campaigns, especially if the RP XP is being awarded just for the player spending time in the game and roleplaying well, or even if there's a lot of action but the GM and/or other players/PCs are arranging for the PC death rate to be very low, whether by avoiding combat when the PCs don't have an advantage, using lots of healing potions, or other options that aren't available in arena situations.

Of course, it's also possible to set up arena combats to likely be survived by one side.
