This is the last question in my Stats Magic series, and it was preceded by Impact of Wisdom: More Knowledgeable Society?. This time, the focus is on a property called Will.
Will determines how much Mana you have, your passive interference resistance, and the maximum range and power of spells.
Two things determine Will: willpower (conviction) and perseverance. Both of these can be increased with effort, so it makes sense that serious mages would want to increase their Will, since you can do more with more Mana. So, my question is, What will be Will's Impact on Mages?
Things to Consider:
- This is a society like modern-day America, but with the recent addition of magic. Like cellphones, it's relatively new but almost everyone is used to it by now. The idea is that tech people (mages) will want more advanced technology (greater capacity to do magic) and invest into it.
- More mana=greater capacity to cast and sustain spells. By this logic, every Mage should invest in Will. However, considering the other questions of this type I've posted (Impact of Agility: Effect On Society?, Impact of Dexterity: More Organized Society, and Increasing Impact: Fitter Society?) would Will really be all that useful?
If more details are needed, or if there's a problem with my question, please let me know, I really do appreciate your feedback and input. Thanks in advance!
