This has probably been discussed before, but can any tell me where to find a list (if one exists) of calculations concerning how damage is calculated in relation to melee/strength skills (or other skills if possible) of your characters etc?

I'm specifically, wondering about how skills such as Magery or Gymnastics affect your fighting skills.

Er, Magery doesn't affect your melee ability, as far as I know. For magic, each point of Magery gives +1 to your Bonus on both mage and priest spells.

As for Gymnastics, I *think* each point gives +5% to hit, +5% to evade and +1 to initiative, but haven't tested it.

These are really common questions perhaps somebody should create an article outlining all the base values and skill effects on characters abilities. Some of its in the manual I think but who looks there.

I'm willing to add this content to the Player FAQ. I guess I'll have to dig around old topics to get to the place where this has been answered before.

That would be really helpful. Iv been playing Avernum Exile games for a long time, but still don't understand all the nuances of damage and skill effects. Probably most players don't entirely understand the system.
