The Harm (1101) Damage Formula.

There are three factors in the formula:

1. A static 15 base damage.

2. A .10 damage factor for all endrolls > 100.

3. A Mental Lore - Manipulation ranks bonus using a seed 1 summation.

The formula is:

**(15 Base damage) + trunc(Endroll - 100) * .10 damage factor) + ( manipulation lore ranks bonus <seed 1>)**

- EXAMPLE 1

You gesture at a giant rat.

CS: +28 - TD: +3 + CvA: +25 + d100: +85 == +135

Warding failed!

A brief tremor ripples across the rat's skin, leaving a faint beading of
scarlet in its wake.

Base damage: 15

Endroll - 100: 35

Lore ranks: 1 (bonus rank 1)

Damage factor: .10

(15 base damage) + (35 * .10) + (1 lore bonus damage) = total damage

(15) + (3) + (1) = 19 total damage

- EXAMPLE 2

You gesture at a giant rat.

CS: +28 - TD: +3 + CvA: +25 + d100: +51 == +101

Warding failed!

A brief tremor ripples across the rat's skin, leaving a faint beading of scarlet in its wake.

... 17 points of damage!

Base damage: 15

Endroll - 100: 1

Lore ranks: 3 (bonus 2)

Damage Factor: .10

(15 base damage) + trunc(1 * .10) + (2 lore bonus damage <seed 1>)= total damage

(15) + (0) + (2) = 17 total damage

- EXAMPLE 3 (from previously posted dated)

Mental Lore - Manipulation.........| 210 110

You gesture at a young creature.

CS: +469 - TD: +149 + CvA: +8 + d100: +56 == +384

... 57 points of damage!

Base damage: 15

Endroll - 100: 284

Lore ranks: 110 (bonus 14)

Damage factor: .10

(15 base damage) + trunc(284 * .10) + (14 lore bonus damage) = total damage

(15) + (28) + (14) = 57 total damage
