Controlling a sentient item

Post by doomed_bishop »

I just have a question about the process. Well, i do not undertand the penality when you've had lost hit points. In the expample (page 91), it says that a level 12 bard have a +12 bonus on the saving throw, and if you took half of his hit points in damage, he'll now receive a +6. The problem is that i don't understand how calculate it. For instance, if the bard had loose 3/4 of his hit points, which bonus he'll have ???

Well, since half his hit points gives him a +6 a 75% loss (3/4th) would be.... +3?

Basic math.

12 (original bonus) - [.75 (3/4th loss) * 12 (original bonus)] = 3

If he had lost only 1/4th his HP, it would be

12 - (.25 * 12) = 9.

But, yes... basic algebra.
