Yeah bujt we've had this discussion before I think, Lev; as far as I 
can tell the Pendragon-style "adventuring as something you do around 
the rest of your life" isn't the typical one most people who use the 
game do.  As such, I suspect you're often seeing the equivelent of 
anywhere from six to twenty-four power gain rolls in a year for a lot 
of RQ characters, and POW just skyrockets compared to age with that.
