Numbers versus Experience Points

Sure, the Cleric in Swords & Wizardry gets fewer Hit Dice than a Fighter, but the Cleric levels faster. So how does the actual Hit Dice over Experience Point vary? The below answer those and other questions. The X-axis is always experience points, plotted on a logarithmic scale.

Graph of Average Hit Points over Experience Points

Graph of Base Hit Bonus over Experience Points

Graph of Saving Throw over Experience Points

The charts start with 1,000 instead of 0 to avoid having the useless 0 to 1,000 section take up a quarter of graph. To compensate, I moved the 1st level information to 1,000.

The charts were created in OpenOffice. The input data was calculated by custom software I wrote.
