>>Hmm, I posted casts on roltons so as to get a maximum endroll advantage; I'll try using the spell in the labyrinth, where the end roll will be a lot less, and let you know what the results are. - THROGG

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.

... 19 points of damage!

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
