Take a look in config.c and check the numbers for max exp gain... that's one
reason, another is that circle lets you level automatically when you have
enough exp... this feature can however be recoded, I myself has changed it
so that you need to go to your guild and train with your guildmaster to
actually benefit from your experience.
But checking the max-exp gain might do the trick, other than that I suggest
you take a look in gain_exp and change the exp you get for a fight.. ie.
make max experience gain level dependant... mine is on 50 exp, but I
multiply this by the level of the character in gain_exp, to calculate the
actual max, and then there is things such as bonuses for killing things
larger than yourself, and minuses for hitting pesky lvl 1 monsters when you
yourself is above said level.
