Nah, You know the DM will rule he's only stunned, not helpless. Plus he's got to have about a million HP. I doubt even if they were so inclined any of their munchkin-enhanced attacks can one-shot him even if they crit. All that would do is piss him off and lead to a TPK a few rounds after he recovers.

DMG:
"The [experience] table doesn’t support awards for encounters eight or more Challenge Ratings higher than the character’s level. If the party is taking on
challenges that far above their level, something strange is going on, and the DM needs to think carefully about the awards rather than just taking
them off a table"
"an encounter in which the PCs defeat something far above their own level (CRs higher than their level by eight or more) was probably the result of fantastic luck or a unique set of circumstances, and thus a full XP award may not be appropriate. "

But more importantly (me):
Don't give xp for killing things that were never going to attack you.
Or don't use xp at all, because honestly it's kinda unnecessary except in systems that use it directly to buy upgrades.

Alternatively, don't award XP simply for attacking, damaging, and/or killing things. I know that is how D&D has pretty much always done it, but I'm used to games that award XP/Character Points/Etc. for accomplishing party and/or individual goals, as well as for good roleplay.

Of course, using a system without such a mechanic is also an option, as Halosty45 says. Even games that run on such things - like Character Points in GURPS - have settings where they don't.

Ahh, the old 'trapped drink' trick.
I've used this a few times in my campaigns. I had a PC who liked to use explosive runes on the inside of the glass before he would fill the drink, then when the unsuspecting PC/NPC got to the bottom of their drink...BOOM!

Question

You know,that make me think... Could they even get EXP from that? While we know in the story that they are not guilty from that... If somehow the barrel was a explosive in purpose... Could it count for exp? It was not a trap in purpose and in no one knew it was going to happen
