For the record, Laeelin, I like your plan, I think the mere formulation of it and the declaration of intent to put it into action is achievement enough to warrant inclusion here, and I may well use it as a template for my own endeavors. I've been pondering where to go after hitting 25th level with my current Monk character and I have five Stones of Experience to ease the journey a bit. I'm going to save those for the lives I decide I really hate.
