My very first thread! So, I'm contemplating setting up an E8 game (rather than E6) for a variety of reasons (I just prefer that power level). Now after a PC caps at level 6 with E6 every 5000 xp they gain a feat. My question is this: if the level cap is 8, should the PCs gain a feat every 5000 xp or should that bar be raised a little? If so what should that benchmark be? 6000 xp? 8000 xp?
I'm looking for fun, but a slow and steady advancement (confession: I have never been too great at the xp number crunching... always found it tedious... )
So, I'd see what the community perspective is. If it matters, I will probably be using 3.5 rather than Pathfinder. I have a few Pathfinder books, but I have ALL the 3.5 books, and ALL the Dragon mags and I'd like the players to have a wide variety of feat selection. My goal in using E8 isn't so much power limitation, it's ease of GM prep, limitation of higher level spells, and faster combat. I know the players will eventually feel like 10th level or so if the game goes long enough, which is fine by me.
