Okay so the problem arose while my friends and I were playing a new campaign my friend had bought. We were around half way done when I needed to leave for the restroom. When I returned my friends told me my chracater had been killed during a tough encounter. I didn't ask how but just thought okay after they finish we can go on a quest to revive me. I was told at the time I would get half the amount of xp for the work I had done and I thought that was fair. It wasn't until the near end of the campaign that I made a remark about the amount I was receiving. I wasn't a negative remark but I was simply commenting on how much I was still getting. Our DM then said I was actually getting less than I thought I was. For a second I thought okay that is still fair until I thought more and more about the amount. Normally the in question amount of 23,000 xp would be just dandy with me, but I thought that given how much my character had contributed to the campaign I asked for more. My DM then said that I either take that amount or get nothing at all. This made me very upset due to the fact that I had contributed alot to the campaign and thought this was very dumb. We can't agree about it so now I ask anyone who sees this. Do you think that the 23,00 is fair,should I get more than that, or am I just being a whiny idiot. Thank you for your time.
