This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Legacy War of Ages question for anyone that has the game
« on: September 06, 2020, 11:30:05 pm »
Can you help me just a tad with the current system, please? I am having trouble understanding something. I'm reading the Customized Character Creation Design on pg 47. It says each attribute begins at 1 and it costs the CURRENT RANK x 10 to increase. This confuses me because the example text it gives for Susan seems like the math is off. She originally wanted to increase Presence and Agility to Rank 4 each and the example says she would only have 40 pts to spend on the rest of her stats out of 160 total pts. Wouldn't it cost 30 pts each to increase Presence and Agility to 4 apiece if you automatically start at 1 and the cost is Current Rank x 10?

In the example on page 48, Jacqueline wants to increase her Presence from 1 to 4 and needs to spend 60 points to do so. This checks out with the formula of (Current x 10), because you have to pay for each rank:


Presence 1--> Presence 2 = 10 pts
Presence 2 --> Presence 3 = 20 pts
Presence 3 --> Presence 4 = 30 pts
Hence, Presence 1 --> Presence 4 = 10+20+30 =  60 pts
