From time to time, folks bring up how much they like or miss the old title names for the character levels. I'm of two minds. On the one hand, I like the economy of Cleric 3 or what have you on character sheets and in stat blocks, and the titles are not universally understood or equivalent. But there is a fun potential in the idea of titles and it is suggestive of how skill level might be recognized and rewarded in society. Unfortunately, I was not satisfied by the versions in my rule books. I had been most annoyed by the cleric titles, but I had problems with some of the fighter and magic-user titles as well, and so I had been thinking and fiddling. Then FrDave brought up the subject again, causing me to think I might as well through my two cents in. Okay, it might be more than two cents -- I have suggested changes for all the classes except the thief.
question yesterday that I think many of you might have missed due to Blogger's continuing unreliability when it comes to scheduled postings. I received one helpful answer, but I am curious if there are any others out there. Thanks!
