Discworld concepts help



bonus - The effect of your stats on your skills.


Discworld uses a hierarchical skill system. A player has skills numbering into the hundreds in which they can improve and train; see "help skills" for more.

When it comes to using your skills, it is generally your bonus in each skill that is relevant, rather than your level in that skill. Although your bonus in a skill is partly determined by your level in that skill, it is also affected by your stats. There are five stats - constitution, dexterity, intelligence, strength and wisdom. See "help stats" for more.

To view your stats, type "score stats". To see how a given skill depends on your stats, use the "skills" command, for example "skills magic.points stats".
