Character/class levels versus magic levels

Why didn't D&D pick different terms for these two things?  Especially since they don't increase with each other.  There are magic levels 0 to 9 (or less for some classes), while there are levels 1 to 20 for character level.  And being level 5 doesn't mean you can cast level 5 magic, either.

And do newer editions of D&D do this better?


  • My guess is that they did that so you couldn't take every class a few levels and become a killing machine.

    I was criticizing their using the same word for two different things.  I'm fine with them being different.
