Monster Evocations

When monsters wield weapons that are affected by Evocations, they are given skill equal to their HD if they are intelligent, and have no skill otherwise. When monsters attempt to use evocable abilities on jewellery, they succeed 100% of the time, regardless of their effective skill.

History

  • In 0.17, all races had their Evocations aptitude decreased by one.
  • In 0.12, a hidden special cost for training Evocations was removed and aptitudes were adjusted.
  • Prior to 0.11, Evocations had no impact on your max MP.
