I've just been reading the rules, and i couldn't quite work out how to read this formula:

Facet points at becoming Force-sensitive = random between [300 * pow(0.75, (XPLevel -1)/5)] and [400 * pow(0.75, (XPLevel -1)/5 )]

can somebody please explain it to me?

FS = 300(0.75(Level-1)) to 400(0.75(level-1)/5))

So basically the server calculates both equations and then generates a random number between the two calculated numbers

so what's the pow for then? and also, isn't that a really huge drop really quickly? the way i calculated that, at level 11, then highest points you can have between the 4 facets is 225... that's a huge drop in potential very quickly imo.

The pow thing probably just indicates that inside the brackets you have the first number (0.75) with the number after the , being the power its taken to.

Ah, thanks. So at level one you can be anywhere between 300 and 400 (which seems to me like a huge variation... 300 seems awfully low for somebody who gets found so early imo) and at level 326 (when i'm guaranteed to be fs) it'll be between 7.44 x 10^-39 and 9.93 x 10^-39... i mean, i think there should be a minimum limit per facet if there isn't already (could somebody maybe confirm this?) and the variation should maybe be changed, because if there's going to be an advantage for getting found early, it may as well be an advantage... i know it's a restricted topic. but still, opinions?

The entire force system is going to be reworked as far a I know, so don't put too much faith in what is currently in place being the final system implemented.

The drop-off used to be a lot steeper, and it was lowered. The facet equations are unlikely to be changed again.
