EXAMPLE:
Month 1: Birb Steirk ii has 3 Knowledge and 2 Cunning and for Month 1 he uses 3 Effort to ##Study Potions 3 times the first month, giving him a Potions=3 at the start of the second month.

Month 2 there is a solo Potions event, where every students can try to brew the best Chillax Potion. The Event calls on Effort*Cunning (+2 for Studious, Prankster and Pureblooded) stats for success.
He submits a night action of ##Participate Potions with 3 Effort on the event, and ##study potions with 1 Effort, overexerting once.
Birb contributes 3 for his Potions skill, and adds that to triple his Cunning attribute due to his 3 Effort (+2 points for his Cunning skill, tripled by 3 Effort to +6), for a total contribution of 9.

He comes second in the event, winning Slytherin +10 Points (someone put in more effort and/or better skill somehow and won +20 points). He also suffers 3HP damage from the overexertion, leaving him at 7HP for month 3, and with Potions at 4.

Is this example on how events work what is going to be the standard? Where attribute points are multiplied by effort plus a flat bonus for skill in the class? Or could a different event be Skill*Effort+Attribute? Or is it a mystery?

The example shows the standard formula, but it won't be the only one.

i'm going to leave signups open for a bit, if we get more numbers that are divisible by 4 we can expand the game easily to fit them in so hopefully everyone has a chance to get in if they want.

Q.E.D.



busb posted:

Hmm i don't quite get what you're asking here sorry

Event requirements will be RNGed, so any skill could theoretically come up for an event, with class specific events (which will be the majority) aligning along the reference table i supplied. If i roll really lucky/unlucky the event could require weird and whacky skills. Whenever i announce an Event i will specify exactly which skills will benefit it, and will generally follow the formula in the example in the OP (Effort x Base Attribute) + class skill + speciality bonus

Sorry, let me be more clear using your example:

quote:

Month 2 there is a solo Potions event, where every students can try to brew the best Chillax Potion. The Event calls on Effort*Cunning (+2 for Studious, Prankster and Pureblooded) stats for success.
If I have terrible potion and cunning stat, could I in this case use Effort*Empthy (+2 friendly, pure/mudblooded) to ask a friend to make one for me?

Ah i get you. You're taking a freeform role playing/CYOA approach.
No that doesn't work i'm sorry. Basically in that example, you're not going to be able to obtain a big score, you're bad at that specific Event. Only the stats I will list for the Event will provide a bonus. if you have no relevant stats you could just put in 3 effort for 3 total contribution (you'll get a minimum 1 contribution point per effort so there's no multiplying of zero).

If we can get two more we can easily up the house numbers to 7, otherwise I'm sure I'll need replacements at some stage!

I'll give it until characters are done.

Which means get cracking! I need everyone to PM me their characters. Do not post them in this thread.
