50 - The Road of Trials
100 - The Vision Quest
300 - The Meeting with the Goddess
450 - The Ultimate Boon

This is now in effect. Post on, fellow adventurers...

And to our veterans, you are now all heroes. Congratulations.

So now when you post, you're not just posting random nonsense on a message board, you're partaking in an epic journey across the deepest consciousness of human culture itself! So for god's sake, put some pants on.

Pedant's note: the original interpretation of the hero's journey laid out by Joseph Campbell contained 17 steps, which was way too goddamn many for our purposes. So we're using Phil Cousineau's streamlined variation. You'll have to work through the Woman as Temptress, Atonement with the Father, and Rescue from Without on your own time. I'm pretty sure you already have some open tabs relevant to the Woman as Temptress anyway. Again, put your pants on.

For more, read some Joseph Campbell. For the bare minimum, read the wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monomyth
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.
