in reply to A Proposal for Additional Levels

Something else that may be fun would be the ability to spend your points. Have nifty little icons in your home node for all of your religious paraphernalia you’ve collected. Say 100 points for a robe, 500 points for bible, 10,000 points for a halo, 50,000 for a little pope hat, that kind of thing.

That way, the saints can knock down their experience level if they want to and have fun climbing back up again.

    That's already something available. See this node for an example.
      Yes, but this way you get stuff for it. I think it would be neat to have a spot on my homenode with all of the little commemorative icons I bought for 50-100 XP. Like an "nth Anniversary of Perl" one, or a "The Day I Made Saint And Then - Oops - Spent 100 XP On An Icon So I Got Knocked Back Down A Level" icon. That idea would probably take some effort to implement, but I REALLY like it. It sort of shifts the "game" from getting XP to collecting stuff, and I love collecting stuff. Anonymous Monk, you have hit my weak spot.

      Give us thingies that we can buy with XP!

      Also, for what it's worth, I'm voting in favor of the OP's idea. It gives all of us (except vroom) something to look forward to.

    I must admit, this is the suggestion I've liked the most. It's kinda tangential to the main discussion, but I like the idea of being able to get "virtual stuff" for XP.

    I can already hear bad jokes about "The Cathedral Monastery and the Bazaar".

      No thanks, the Monastery is already bizarre enough.

      (was that pun bad enough for you? =P )
