Rank

A rank refers to how often a character has invested the points in a skill when using the GOALS verb. The first 40 ranks of a skill give a higher skill bonus than the ranks beyond 40, at a decreasing rate.

  • Ranks 1 through 10 give 5 points to the skill's bonus.
  • Ranks 11 through 20 give 4 points.
  • Ranks 21 through 30 give 3 points.
  • Ranks 31 through 40 give 2 points.
  • Every ranks 41 and beyond give 1 point.

At rank 40 and beyond, a skill bonus can be calculated as Bonus = 100 + Ranks.

Not every skill uses the bonus provided by the ranks and instead relies only on the skill's ranks to determine benefits; some such skills are the various lores, Multi Opponent Combat, and spell training.
