What does it mean to "support" bounded accuracy? I don't even give it a second thought. It just is.No one that supports bounded accuracy gets to try and make this point. And the math BA was meant to take away had way more of a purpose than XP calculations.
It's not about realizing it after it's done, but knowing what to pursue before it's done. If I have to clear out the dungeon to level up perhaps because that's all the content the DM has, or because it's the only way to get to the next step in the DM's prepared plot, just say so, and that's what I'll do. Leveling up in these instances are ways to incentivize the players sticking to the limited content. No problem with that at all, but let's not beat around the bush about what it is.If you don't know when you've achieved a significant goal, there's more problems than just the leveling method.
