OK, but why create a fantasy MMORPG that closely mimics levels, hit
points, armor class, etc. in the first place?  I'd sooner closely
mimic what I imagine to be real regarding advancing or gaining
power, recieving wounds, and wearing protective armor in a virtual
fantasy world.  In my opinion, D&D doesn't do such a good job in
this regard, so why would I want to mimic it?
