The Levels are split up into four tiers (1-4, 5-10, 11-16, 17-20) .. do they have names like Heroic, Legendary,..?
LIar Lair Liar. It is local thug, Realm Thug, Master THug, and world wide known thug.DMG pg 37 lists them as Local Heroes, Heroes of the Realm, Masters of the Realm, and Masters of the World.
Wonder if the scrapped the level 21+ rules because Masters of the Universe was taken?
I like Heroic, Paragon and Epic too, but this is missing a fourth one. Maybe a "Veteran" between Hero and Paragon or <Adventurer, Hero, Paragon, Epic>
That works though I think of the first 4 as Farmer or Apprentice levels that has more dignity I suppose.
Fragile as flowers in most editions , 4e has minion class enemies even at level 1 in which it is obvious they are not newbs (themes and a feat at level 1), but I translate that to level 3-5 in 5e . Gygax and Arneson themselves skipped the first levels in their own home games. Gygax never the less named level 1 fighter veteran which at some level implies something under the belt.Are level 1 heroes complete noobs? I've never taken that way.
