Any thoughts on prestige levels? A way to track real world experience and accolades? I'm interested in this for a few reasons. One, I have done some interesting things of note in my life. And two it could be a good way to get myself and others to go out and achieve great things in their lives. For instance getting a 4th degree black belt in TaeKwonDo, becoming a Guru in Kali, developing a knife system to teach law enforcement (then actually doing that), getting into the martial arts hall of fame, being a decorated police officer, going overseas as a military contractor etc... The list goes on and my life isn't done. It would be cool to have a way to track and measure such things on the character sheet. After all, this project is all about making your real life an RPG and a large part of an RPG is the experiences and accomplishments done throughout the game, in this case life.

I certainly like that idea. I'm not sure of the best way of implementing it but if I think of anything I'll post it. I know I don't have anything near some of the accomplishments you have yet but I will have my programming degree soon and this would be a great way for me to track and motivate more life accomplishments.

Well I have looked at my life as an adventure for a long time now and I'm always looking for the next thing. You being a programer can certainly do the same thing and getting your degree will be a great start! Who knows what programs or games you'll be making in the future!?! You create the programing for nanomachines or exosuits (like what DARPA is working on) or robots that change the world, or the next big online game. All pretty exciting stuff! Having a way to track those things and even encourage you to do more would be a huge plus to this RPG. I hope Josh can free up some time soon to expand on this.

I dig this idea. I'm concerned that implementing it will require an incredible effort from those who care about whichever specific field of advancement in finding objective ways to measure progress. I'm not against it, but it will take some doing. We would have to start from a much more general scope initially, things we can all agree upon. For instance, if you have a degree of some kind, the level of that degree grants you a certain number of prestige points. Your score in the Khan Academy could do the same, as well as the number of public offices you've held and at what scale. I'm kicking this around, but I definitely want your input.
