work up

  • verb/1 To acquire points in a serious fashion. "I've worked up to necro already". It implies that you care about what you are doing and about the persona in question, and that it is a foreground task; building up is more of a background activity. Typically, players will work up their highest-level personae and build up other ones, as working up carries overtones of having done so by hard graft (building up is either routine or, for your main persona, very slow). A killer will normally be built up to a useful level before suddenly showing their true colours, but a killer that has worked up to a level has probably done so by killing. See arch-wiz.
