    The idea of having minor abilities between levels on levels that normally don't receive anything special is kind of interesting, but... Admittedly, I am almost always DM, but I don't think I've ever viewed a level as "dead". There are always skill points to be had, hps, and a number of other advantages. I was particularly surprised that they think that the first 20 levels of cleric have 19 dead levels. If anything, every other level would be dead -- at most! -- since you don't get any new spells.

    Nonetheless, the perks are interesting. Although, I'm not sure they are enough to assuage anyone from going the multi- or prestige-class route.

    That is so cool. I always think of those dead levels are lame. Those dead levels are often the reason I multi-class. If the Sorcerer had a little bit of "filler" in those dead levels, it would go a long way for me keep a single class.
