I’m cruel. At the same time I am cutting the HPs in DJ some slack. Has I have things set up in the SRD right now HPs start loosing STEEP at the age of 81. Not really many at first, but it gets worse as the years pass.
What this means is that the player will need to subtract STEEP from chosen K/S Areas. Later he may have to remove entire K/S areas. But I do have guidelines.
Those Areas with few points in them take priority. Only have 4 points in Cryptography? Then the HP would lose a point there, giving him 3 points plus Att. Once all STEEP is gone then the HP would have no real skill in the K/S and would have to rely on what amounts to guesswork to figure out codes and ciphers.
K/S Areas can be regained, but they would have to be re-learned. In addition, at the age of 81 the cost of learning a skill under any Trait increases to an AP cost of 6 points. As I said, I’m cruel.
There’s more to work out, but that’ll suffice for the moment.
