Quote from: greyormYou can have a Humanity score of "1" and still be an ideal Saint.
Quote from: Akos SzederjeiThis thread is the ultimate "Humanity for beginners" thread. This "binary switch" explonation is really good.
Quote*coughs*Except, umm...I really hate to do this, again.It isn't a binary. It's a scale.
Quote from: ValamirYou're missing the key. *snip very nice example*
QuoteRight.But that's not what I'm talking about.I am talking about the effects of humanity within the game system. Within the game system, as you approach 0 humanity, it becomes easier to summon demons, and harder to roll Humanity as a bonus stat (as described in Sorcerer's Soul.)This is a qualitative scalar effect of humanity on Sorcerer play.Thus, in Sorcerer as written, humanity is not entirely a binary. Clear?
QuoteYour behavior as a player might change depeding on your perception of how close to falling the character is. Performing certain Sorcerous acts becomes much harder to do. There is no scale. There are two seperate measurements going on. The binary on and off, and the distance to off. They are seperate measures, not a scale.
