Demon MP cost question Advanced Sorcery


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm confused about the MP cost for summoning demons. On page 37, under "Point sacrifices for Demons", it says


"4 per 1D8 STR, CON, SIZ, INT, POW, DEX, or MOV - 1 magic point "


What does "4 per" mean there? Is it a mistake, or does it mean something? It can't possibly cost 4 mp per 1d8 of each attribute. I assume you have to put 1 point into each attribute. If so that's a minimum of 4*7 = 28 mp for stats, which seems to contradict the rest of the text. 


I think 1 per 1d8 seems reasonable, but I want to make sure. Anyone know?

Yeah, on P.37 under DEFINING THE DEMON it reads "Each MP spent in the summoning gives 1d8 to a specific characteristic. "

So the chart Point Sacrifice for demons chart means each 1d8 costs -1 MP.

Not a contradiction just have to read it properly. Which I did not. :)

I'd assume Green is correct about the 4 being average. 4 OR 1d8 STR, not 4 PER 1d8 STR..?

I meant to post this last night but got distracted and forgot...yep, mind like a steal trap!


On page 159 of Stormbringer 5ed is the chart/box origin for the one on page 37 of AM. In the original SB box there is no "4" before the "Per 1D8..." (the p in "Per" is also a capital letter in SB5ed) I'm thinkin'  the "4..." in AM is a typo.
