So i have been thinking and that reputation is incredibly potent resource that unless a player is burning it, never depletes easily. So I was thinking about ways to address a little attrition to this.
As we all know human being are very greedy creatures. Thus you should have a need to maintain your reputation. After all you are asking for a favor down the line its sure you have done some good things in the past but what have you done for me recently Thus maybe players should once in a while have to complete some minor tasks to keep their reputation from degrading. I don't think it should be anything to drastic but maybe 2 or 3 points every month and half and maybe at around the 8 month mark it gets larger until a resting place of 10 or 20.
Any other thoughts or ideas on the issue? any regards to this one?
