I've been looking at the Exp for this book, and it says that you should get enough exp to go from level 5 to level 6 between the Minotaur, Jeslyn and the wardstone/babues. I added it up and it totals 20500, about 2500 short for to hit level 6 (per player). I'm not sure where the extra exp is supposed to come from.
Experience totals per part
Part 1: 1800
Part 2: 3300
Part 3: 5100 (varies depending on randoms)
Part 4: 5500
I'm confused as well, but mostly by this part:The PCs should reach 5th level just
before or just after destroying the
The PCs should be catapulted into
6th level by this adventure’s climactic

also attain their first mythic tier.
There doesn't seem to be anything between those two except a fight with some Babaus, how does that 'catapult' them into 6th level? Is there an uber XP award for going mythic or something? I'm definitely missing something here.
Sorry about the delay in replying real life is keeping me busy. However I think from your post your only adding up fixed XP since you mention randoms only in part 3. However the entire time the party is below the city there's a 35% chance per hour of an encounter ranging from a single darkmantle up to a venomous snake swarm (sure its a 35% chance of an encounter and then a 89-100 for it but its 1,200 by itself with no other encounters). Similarly part 4 and the assault can generate more XP if they have multiple attacks rather than taking the place on their first try and just because they've progress to taking the fight to the enemy doesn't mean that the randoms from part 3 stop occuring. I admit there's not enough XP between destroying the wardstone and the end of the adventure if they only hit 5 when doing that. So in that case you may either need to beef the final fight up or just accept they'll be 5th level in part 4 sometime not necessarily when they destroy the fragment.
