Customs Creation - May 2016 (Bonus Article)

Special Powers
Author: IshMEL

Back in October, I introduced YACE (Yet Another Cost Estimator), a formula to estimate the cost of your custom. This month, I’ll take a look at how to use the formula to “price” special attacks and d20 powers.

The purpose of the YACE formula is to give you an initial idea of a unit’s cost. You’ll still need to test, of course, and no formula can replace that. But, you need to start somewhere, and YACE can help get you in the right ballpark, or whatever sports metaphor you’d like to use for “close but not exact.”

To review, here’s the formula, arrived at through regression analysis:
  • Estimated Points = (20 × Lives) + (2 × Adjusted Move) + (5 × Range) + (15 × Attack) + (17 × Defense) + (4 × APT) – 115

  • “Lives” is life for heroes, or number of figures
