At the risk of sounding like I am trying to curry favor with the Gods and tell them what they wish to hear, I'd just like to state that, after reviewing Badgelist, that I think this a great way to encourage people to explore the various ways to develop themselves rather than the traditional approach of \"do these 3 things to become a member. \" If used well by GMs, this an outstanding way to get people to think about developing a well-rounded persona that will accelerate learning, maake their lives much

more meaningful in Avalon, and enable them to make meaningful contributions to their guild, city and the land more quickly.
