Til level 22 Bishop ΔXP was constantly growing, then it stalled at 10000.

From there on climbing ranks didn't become harder anymore.

see Levels of Monks for details

Readjusting those deltas to constant grow would give you your extra levels in a natural way, without needing to invent new ranks.

This would actually mean a demotion, now for real.

But I wouldn't care.

Tho I think the monastery has more urgent problems...

) Here a rough sketch. The deltas would of course need to be properly rounded to steps modulo 1000

DB<4> say join ':', $_,$d*=1.25,$xp+=$d for 23..28 23:12500:52500 24:15625:68125 25:19531.25:87656.25 26:24414.0625:112070.3125 27:30517.578125:142587.890625 28:38146.97265625:180734.86328125

as you can see, even BUK would need to reincarnate to reach (28) patriarch again ;-)

) well it was far easier in the old times to gather XP, but that's not the point here

) loss of rank would only happen to less than 20 monks actually

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
