12+3(5) in Guernicus Template ?


I'm an Ars Magica newbie.

I just bought the main book and when I look the Guernicus Template, I see that his Intellego values "12+3 (5)".

What does the "(5)" means ?

It means that the character has put 5 XP towards increasing his Intellego 12 to Intellego 13.

Edit: This explained in the 'Format' section on page 20.

Well Thanks mylord !

Now my question looks stupid :unamused:

Not really. You've indicated that you're new to the system, and the notation isn't exactly obvious, especially when one hasn't memorised the virtuelist yet :slight_smile:
