I actually don't really like that sense of escalation. I like character advancement to be more in terms of achieving goals, acquiring indirect power, and defeating obstacles than acquiring personal combat prowess in an exponential fashion. I like for there to be a "Top" you can't really pass, and the players to start out close to it.



This is probably why we'd run this campaign the way each of us is suggesting.
