I'd thought each clone had one point less Constitution, becoming increasingly fragile (and eventually nonviable) after repeated iterations?

That would be one way to control things as well, but I haven't seen any similar ruling in any version of the game that I recall (granted 1e and 2e are way hazy after all this time, but I could see 1e having said ruling since it also had a loss of con when you died didn't it).

Of course, one thing not brought up is the fact that if you create a younger version of yourself, would that version not be healthier. After all wouldn't that be why you would do it. 5e doesn't have aging effects though, unlike 3/3.5e wherein you grew weaker but more wise. In the end, I don't think this would be an effective way to control things. At the upper levels, a true loss of level is TYPICALLY just as hard of a hit as a loss of Con... that being said, we still don't know the rules for leveling past level 20 in 5e.... which makes me wonder... wait, let me catch myself and actually start a new thread rather than derail this.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

I would preffer planar travel where time works differently. Faerie seems like a good example and ten years are not so huge a change. So your Aboleths can send whole party into another plane and after their adventure there they find on return that time has moved without them.

Weren't there a few adventures which involved characters entering some other (extraplanar) domain and, upon returning, discovering that mere days became the passing of years?
