better (for me) basic class titles

February 24, 2012  ⚔️

So, in old-school D&D – prior to AD&D Second Edition – every class had a different title at each level until “name level,” which was always 9th level. Some of these made more sense than others. If the priesthood controls your access to your priestly powers, maybe there really are well-known titles for different ranks. Others are sillier: when a thief reaches 7th level, he’s still just “pilfering?”
