Regarded

"A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires."

- Marcus Aurelius

You may be a big fish - but you've lived your whole life in a small pond. There's a few rumors about you, maybe. But you're nothing to write home about. Yet. All characters begin at this level. Regardeds are weaker than those who prove themselves - but still thirsty for life and glory.

Hero

"A generation of men is like a generation of leaves; the wind scatters some leaves upon the ground, while others the burgeoning wood brings forth - and the season of spring comes on. So of men one generation springs forth and another ceases. "

- Homer, The Iliad

Every battle has them. Every adventure breeds them. Heroes- these are the names the tales in taverns and back-alley murmurs make note of. Every land has its fair share. Responsibility weighs heavily on their shoulders. Whoever they are, they make a difference. They matter.

Legend

"A hero is born among a hundred, a wise man is found among a thousand, but an accomplished one might not be found even among a hundred thousand men."

- Plato

Legends truly accomplish much. There are few who survive a lifetime of hubris. So few are those who defy the Gods and survive- but Legends are the people . They make their mark upon the world whether their name is remembered or not. These are the people whom the epics speak of.

Almighty

"Badness you can get easily, in quantity; the road is smooth, and it lies close by. But in front of excellence the immortal gods have put sweat, and long and steep is the way to it."

- Hesiod

"Be a king? Think not. Why be a king, when you can be a god?"

- Eminem

At a certain point, the very best among us come to find they are something beyond heroes or legends. These are the select people in all of history that harness the power of those mere mortals around them, ascend their worldly shells, and feed on the prayers and worship of others. Turn their devotion into strength and character. They become gods - and nothing can erase their names.
