I've gained a level in my character class.

The Academic Level Progression
Level     Title
1            Graduate Student
2            All But Dissertation
3            Doctor!
4            Assistant Professor
5            Tenured
6            Associate Professor
7            Full Professor
8            Endowed Chair/Distinguished Professor
9            Professor Emeritus

As of today, I am level 5!  (and expect to hear about level 6 in a couple of weeks).

This makes me a higher level academic than Indiana Jones who, understandably, was denied tenure.


  1. Congratulations on being granted tenure!

    However, your level advancement chart is flawed. Some of us skip over 2 & 3 and go right to 4. Perhaps that's the power of multi-classing with an MFA?

    BTW, I used to teach at FMU in Florence, back in 2002-2004.

  2. Congratulations! I'm level 4 by your ranking--but a don't know if academic clinical medicine has the same advancement table.

  3. Woohoo! Fantastic news! I'm so happy for yOu. :)

  4. @Trey: Yeah, I think you get to use the magic-user advancement table.

    @Professor: I forgot to mention I'm now level 6 by your chart. But that jump between 6 & 7 and between 7 & 8 requires a hell of a lot of XP. After that, it's a quick advancement to level 9. And you forgot level 10: Lich Lord (every department has at least one).

  5. @ Matthew & Trey -- I think it's actually easier to model academia in 3E, with it's ease of multi-classing and prestige classes, but I didn't want to go there.

    Thanks for the congrats, everyone!
