My understanding of the Focus Power Test rules indicates the Librarian gets a bonus to his FP Test equal to 5xPsy Rating to which he's attempting to manifest the Power. So if a Librarian with a Psy Rating of 3 manifests at Fettered his bonus is +10%, and if he Pushes he gets a total bonus to the FP Test of +30%. If this is the case I haven't thought it to be a good mechanic. 2 or 3xPR seems sufficient, 5 just seems excessive. I know multiples of five are intended to make the math "easy", but it's a multiple result that is then added, so the logic fails. Even were the multiplier 2 or 3 it would still generate a number that needs added to the base, and simple math is just that; simple. Psy Rating 3, multiplied by 5, equals 15, add to base WP score of 47 is no harder or easier than Psy Rating 3 times 3 for a total of 9 added to 47. The logic of choosing 5 as a multiplier just fits within the standard 5/10 mechanic presented throughout the game, but otherwise flops. Additionally, Fettering a Power shouldn't make it easier to manifest, in my opinion. Increasing the Target Number increases the chance of successfully manifesting a Power, yes, but also increases the chances for Psychic Phenomena, which penalizes a Librarian just for manifesting Unfettered Powers. Again, an odd consequence, not that PP happen often with Librarians manifesting Powers. I think the rule is meant to act as the FP Test's version of Range/Size/Skill modifier, but it just seems counter-intuitive.

In the end, even though it bothers me, I've come up with no alternative I'm entirely pleased with, so have changed the multiplier to 3xPR rather than 5. So a Librarian with PR 3 that Fetters a manifestation gets a bonus to his FP Test of 6, which is insignificant enough for me as to be nothing, but the Librarian *Player *still gets something rather than nothing, and Pushing he would get +18 to his FP Test, instead of +30. Four advances in WS only gives you +20, and that's after the expenditure of a significant amount of XP, whereas the +30 from Pushing comes from…uuuhh…making a choice? No. Just no. Sure PP/Perils…but I think all Players, as much as they say they rue PP/Perils, will tell you with all honesty they look forward (with relish) to hearing the results rolled on those tables. They're Space Marines; what's withered plant life to them? Summoned a Daemon? Just another challenge to be faced and bested.

I suggest 3 multiplied by the target Psy Rating as a bonus to the Focus Power Test.
