Combat Value

A character's Combat Value is the average of their 3 stats, rounded down. Thus a character with 6 Body, 6 Mind and 5 Soul would have a Combat Value of 5. A character's Combat Value affects both the character's chances to hit with an attack as well as the damage that the character inflicts with the successful attack.

When a character enters combat, they will attempt to hit their opponent by using their Combat Value + an appropriate Skill. When they inflict damage, the total damage inflicted is determined by the Base Damage of the attack (or the weapon damage, if it is a basic attack) + the character's Combat Value + any bonus damage from Attributes (such as Massive Damage).
