Proposal: powers of ageing

Change “Mystics gain double EP.” to

Mystics gain an additional 2 EP.

For each number in the Karma and EP columns of the GNDT, if it exceeds 2 digits round it down to 2 digits.
Round any IP with more than 1 digit down to 1 digit.

Change “Mortals with an Age greater than or equal to 50 and less EP than their Age divided by 10 are considered weakened.” to

Mortals with an Age greater than or equal to 50 and having the following expression be true ([their Age] ^ [ (the number of Mystic type artifacts that mortal has access to) + 1 ]) > [their EP divided by 10 ] are considered weakened.

with the automatic mystic doubling gone we can have similar to the previous weakening condition while still curbing it with powers if they can also gain EP with powers. i think the square root and division by 500 of pokes’ proposal was throwing some people off.
also attempts to fix the GNDT to be readable if there are huge numbers in them.

This comment is a notification that I have idled myself, per the rule that “Admins may render themselves Idle at any time, but should announce it in a post or comment when they do so.”

The equation is flawed, I believe. Take the base case: you need 510 EP to not be weakened, and if you gain a single artifact you need around 25000 EP:

(51^(1+1)) > 25000 /10 is true, and such a person is weakened.

You’re right. I can’t seem to come up with an equation that seems fair after comparing its base output to what EP someone could make at 1-10 number of artifact access. I’ll try again tomorrow. against
