I think I like the idea of characters effectively being newborns until they reach level 18. Unfortunately, that might mean they can't attend Brewfest until they've reached level 21. I mean, the ironic uses of this kind of system could go on forever. My own suggestion is that characters need more pouches. As I've learned from comic books, nothing screams realism like pouches.
