Uh, well, I thought I did <scratches head>, but I can't seem to recall
specifically doing so.

I always counted the talent points as 1/2 an attribute point for EP
progression. However, if you wanted to encourage more talents but not high
IQs, your suggestion would go further down that track. Either way, it
decouples IQ and the breadth of talents a character can have.

Yet with the IQ prerequisites, there's still plenty of reason for some kinds
of characters to take IQ.
