Superior Attunement Game Mechanics

Described below are the derivations for the various attunements and Distinctions for each Superior, in terms of existing GURPS mechanics. They are listed in an order that corresponds with the sections of Chapter 4.

If there is no special ability for a Choir or Band, the entry is omitted. Some Superiors have an initial "All" entry, which lists abilities common to all Choirs or Bands. These are not included in the point total listed here for the individual Choirs or Bands for that Superior. (They are normally included in the Choir/Band costs listed in Chapter 4, and in the Superior Attunement Cost Tables on p. 41.)

Distinction point totals here do not include the level of Celestial Rank they bestow; that Rank is included in the costs listed in Chapter 4.

When bonuses are given for resonances (or other celestial powers that use attribute, Will, or Perception rolls), the power is treated as having an intrinsic Mental/Hard skill, and the bonus cost is computed according to the Racial Skill Bonus rules on p. CI177.

Some celestial powers, have game mechanics based on psionic powers. However, they are not actually psi abilities, and are priced as single-skill powers. (If the psi skill has no single-skill cost, the full power group cost is used.)

Some powers are based on Inherent Magic (p. CI38), when a GURPS spell was the best match to the celestial ability. These powers are not actually based on magic; Inherent Magic was simply used to help determine the point cost or mechanics.
