# User:Cedric/Power Equation

Jump to: navigation, search

The power equation governs the effect of every use of power (force, intimidation, intelligence, cleverness, persuasion, etc.) in the game universe.

The main philosophy is two-fold:

1. individual power: as an ability score goes towards its maximum from the specialization of the individual, a exponential benefit derives from its decreasing probability, and
2. divine powers: these powers permeate any use of force in the universe. As the gods trust characters below, exponential benefits can be expected.

(dice or luck of the goddess)(individual)(tools)(divine)(condition)

• Level of players
• simplified POWER = (ability_score/10)2 or
• POWER = goddess_trust(LVL) * (ability_score/10)(1+god_trust_of_your_ability)

Individual:

• health %-age
• condition: exhuasted, blind, paralized
• ability score
• proficiency

POWER = goddess_trust(LVL) * (Ability_Score/10)^(god_trust_of_ability+1) * abilty_Score2...

the God_trust works like this: Each ability score gets a trust score from the god(s) above. The AllthatIS might trust your INT 50%, your STR 20%, and your use of WIS %40, then your exponent is

Tools

• dice for the action
• condition
• weight or difficulty of use
• possibly extra random die for the tools relationship to everything else.

Divine:

• trust score
• alive?
• luck from the goddess
• the order of the universe (origin of difficulty)

• YANG: The (god"s) affects things through the choice of what attribute to hold dominant or a race (the yin side must chose which is counter-balanced and reduced)
• YIN: The goddess affects things through pairing which attribute is subordinate to a vocation's dominant attribute. STR is dominant say, then what is it`s companion trait. The yin (goddess?) side of the universe might make it DEX or CON or WIS, even.
