It sounds to me like you're actually using levels in combination with
some other elements, rather than JUST levels as I was discussing.
Perhaps I should have called it:
Pure levels in the absence of any and all other information
pertaining to the skills and abilities of the character
Somehow, I don't find the idea of typing that repeatedly very appealing.
I *did* say there was an infinite middle ground, which is apparently
where you are. Somewhere between 'famous potatoes' and 'live free or
die', the truth lies.

I am here to grind your eyes harder into the miasmic bile of life; to
show you the truth and the beauty in the whisper of steel on silk and
the crimson scent of blood as it rises to meet the caress of a blade.
