Sorry when i missed it in the rules or in the forum as well, but i don't find an answer to that:

I often read about whos getting "credit" for killing a monster. But...what is that credit? I know, that killing a monster brings a money token on the hex, where the monster dies. But, this isn' a credit for someone in particular, isn't it? Every Hero could loot it.

So, does it grant any exp for killing a monster or something else?

THX!

It would be for personal quests or battle goals. Otherwise it doesn't matter.

Basically, "credit" in this case doesn't refer to money, but recognition of someone having done something. Same as when a movie ends, "the credits start rolling", names of director, producers, actors, etc.

Who kills what and how many can matter to certain personal quests and battle goals.

I think we all expected to get XP for killing monsters because of the D&D trope, but no. XP comes from your cards plus bonuses from completing scenarios etc

That way, support characters aren't disadvantaged and it works well in game terms.

List it under "personal achievements" on your resume.

Also your character gets to brag about it to the others in the pub!

By d&d and trope I think you mean almost every other game
