I'm sure Elec probably doesn't need to read this but for everyone else wondering what this meditating thing is:
>Ricinus says, "First, since khri need be more effective through a longer range of skills I would like to set up a varied method for starting your khris."
>Ricinus says, "Each khri would have a base difficulty, which would contest a mixture of Inner Magic and the appropriate subskill. If you were to start the khri as you are used to, instantly, you would be doing so contested by that difficulty."
>Ricinus says, "There will be two ways to reduce that difficulty, and by reducing the difficulty increase the potency of the ability."
>Ricinus says, "The first is by sitting/kneeling/prone. This method reduces the minimum difficulty of the ability."
>Ricinus says, "The second method is by introducing a delay in the ability's activation. You would attempt to start the ability, then 10-20 seconds later it would take effect. This would not be a RT action, but there may be restrictions on what sorts of activites would break your concentration. This method reduces the maximum difficulty by some amount."
>Ricinus says, "You could use one or both methods for combined effect. If your skill already surpasses the max difficulty for a particular ability, it will not start with a delay regardless of how you attempt to start it.
A lot of people were weird-ed out by this one way or another, I personally like it and expect it to be a non-issue for pretty much everyone except very low circle thieves.
