This document will help you know the deference between how our DM @AdamKoebel runs Court of Swords compared to a regular DnD 5e game.
I think it’s needs to be updated.
“Attempting to accomplish a goal or quest and failing means no XP, too bad, you failed. This is not an XP for failing model.”
You now get XP attempting/working on a goal. Don’t know the number but something like 50 times your level.
It does need some updates, but that’s still a true statement - the thing is now “take a meaningful risk in pursuit of a goal grants 50 x your level in XP” but a failed goal is still a failure.
