in thread New level: heretical

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

...porque es dificil estar guapo y blanco.
