It seems that the puzzle I proposed may be too simple. I would therefore like to add this 3rd and special condition:

B^{x + y + zi} = B^{x} + i(x-1)

When the sequence is constructed correctly, the above eq. will always be true.
B= related log base/ a real number

x= real number
y= real number
zi= pure imaginary

We can extend the above equation to read:

B^{x + y + zi} = B^{x} + i(x-1)= a + bi
