Stats in Torment: Tides of Numenera take three forms: Stats, stat pools and edge.
Stat Pools Edit
There are three primary stats, describing the mental and physical characteristics of a character:
- Might - Each point of Might also increases Health by 1.
- Speed - Every 2 points of Speed also increases Evasion by 5%.
- Intellect - Every 2 points of Intellect also increases Willpower by 5%.
The party must rest to refill their stat pools.
Effort and EdgeEdit
For each task affected by a stat, effort can be applied to increase the chance of success. Applying a level of effort costs 2 points from the corresponding stat pool. This cost is reduced with the character's Edge in that stat.
