Mana And RegenEdit
Mana and mana regen are based off of these formulas.
Mana = 30 x (X) + (1.5x Int Modifier)
X = your level / 2; Minimum 1
Regen = 1.5 x Wis Modifier (if it comes to a .5, round down. ex 7.5 = 7)
Example a level 1 mage has an int modifier of 10, and a wis modifier of 5.
Her starting mana is 45, (30 x (1) + (1.5 x 10) = 45
Her regen is 7 per round (1.5 x 5 = 7.5)
Mana cost is determined by spell level, and the spell itself. For instance to cast Fireball, a 3rd level spell it would be 15 mana for 2d6 damage, plus 10 for every d6 added after. So to cast a 2d6 fireball it would be 15 mana, however to cast a 6d6 fireball it would be 55 mana.
For other spells that dont have a variable on power it is spell level times 5, so magic missle is a 5 mana spell.
Zero level spells are the exception to this rule, they cost 2 mana.
