Ben: grab scale from existing system. Have lvls 1-20.. quickly level up with small tasks, then it gets difficult

As people level up, they get personality upgrades or something. "I'm now charming"

Doug: Masonic rituals or rites; all the iconography is about builders. Bricklayer's skirt and all that. They have levels.

Willow: some people have teased Jigsaw as being kind of culty, let's just embrace it and run with it.

Robin (added 2/9): I'm not a gamer, so I don't really care about the levels thing. However, I would be totally down with merit badges.

Larry James (3/34/10): Initially it should be fairly simple to test the mechanics and implementation. however it can easily grow into something much bigger than was initially imagined.
