No flips for you!
It's in the post I quoted -- @Lanefan literally said he didn't level cross-class in real life.I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. People can get better at what they do.
No, I didn't insist that. I said that if you're making the argument that people in real life level up, then that same kind of logic applies to people in real life earning XP. I, personally, think the entire idea of game terms applying to real life to be bizarre and a bit cringe. I'm pointing out that if you're going to claim that leveling isn't as gamey as XP because people in real life have level, that the foundation of that entire argument is smoke. Real life people don't earn XP and also do not level up.I got better as a software developer through practice and learning. For a game like D&D you have to vastly simplify that process which means giving PCs classes and those classes have levels which roughly model real world growth. What's bizarre is that you've insisted that "people in real life also earn XP". The only reason to have XP in a game is because of that simplification of class levels and that we measure growth in spurts not the continual improvement of reality.
I'm done. Have a good one.
