in thread New level: heretical

    Anybody have a list spanning from just below initiate on down to ... (anti-saint|whatever)?

    Might it include titles like Fallen, sinner and/or possessed?

I'd think "Fallen" would be about right for level -10 (Fallen Angels, etc). How's this for new levels?

LevelTitle
-1Unbeliever
-2Offender
-3Sinner
-4Transgressor
-5Heretic
-6Infidel
-7Blasphemer
-8Idolator
-9Heresiarch
-10Fallen

The trick is ordering the severity of things like blasphemy, idolatry, heresy, and so on.

    I'd vote to replace 'Offender' with 'daemon' ;)

    Ack! You've lost 5 XP. You have -100429 until level Antivroom.

    I wonder if it as good idea to create a career path for vandals? And put "vandal" in there BTW... :-)

    Well, ++ for effort, but your proposed names would need some reconsideration. Problem is that "unbeliever" and "infidel" are synonyms; as are "offender", "sinner", and "transgressor"; as are "heretic" and "blasphemer". "Fallen" refers to pretty much everybody.

    I would propose a taxonomy with fewer levels. How about
    Level  Title
    -1 Benighted
    -2 Sinner
    -3 Excommunicant
    -4 Witch
    -4 Troll
    Hmmmm... A Possible down-side to this whole idea is that it gives persons of a certain anti-social inclination something to strive for. In effect, it rewards undesirable behavior.

    Maybe what we need is something like:
    Level  Title
    -1 Penitent
    -2 Excommunicant

    This only serves to promote negative XP. I can see people creating accounts with the intention of reaching these levels. This is something we should avoid.
