Description Unified the varied concepts of "chaos infusion", "order integration", etc. into a single concept of energy infusion managed by the energy definitions. All of the elemental, amalgamal, cardinal (order/chaos/etc) energies, and magickal and goetic, are now capable of this. The mechanism uses some actual math regarding how much energy it takes to form solid whatever-type-of-energy, and it turned out to be a lot, which means that many mechanisms that were pretty much infuse-once-or-twice-and-you're-done will now be a long process of gradual enchantment. On the plus side, the gradual buildup works better than it used to, so that long process is more meaningful than multiple infusions were before. Also, instead of all of an item's coloration being determined by the strongest influence from esoteric energies, there's now a mechanism where small infusions might start out only affecting the smallest component, and different infusions could show up on different components.
Reason Improvement.
Result Energy infusion is more gradual and more interesting.
Version lib revision incremented to Ain Soph 2.6.98
