The Kingdom of Skyy
Depravity is gained through evil actions, and how much taint a character gains is subjective on the intensity of the evil done.
The degree to which a character has been driven mad by depravity is measured in 3 stages- mild, moderate, and severe.
A character reaches mild depravity when they manifests their first mental symptom (at 5 points of depravity).
A character is considered to possess moderate levels of depravity when it is above ¼ but below ½ of the character’s depravity threshold.
And a character is considered to possess severe levels of depravity when it is above ½ of the character’s depravity threshold. These distinctions are useful for seeing how deeply a character has been affected by taint.
For every 5 points of depravity a character possesses, she manifests a Depravity Symptom- a sign of the toll that great evil has taken on her psyche.
To calculate a character’s depravity threshold multiply the higher of the character’s Wisdom score or Charisma score by 5, and add one half your character’s level rounded down.
