    Can someone tell me what the formula for discordance is?

    What do you multiply by what and what makes the bonus?

    Found the answer.

    % Success Formula

    · 50 + 2 * (Bard Skill - Bard Difficulty after Modifiers)

    · Look up creature’s base difficulty on list below (e.g., lich lord base difficulty is 106.4).

    · Apply all Bard Difficulty Modifiers as described below (e.g., exceptional instrument and Peacemaking reduce base difficulty by 15 points, so the Bard Difficulty for the lich lord becomes 106.4 – 15 = 91.4).

    · Subtract Bard Difficulty from Bard Skill (e.g., if Peacemaking is 100 then 100 – 91.4 = 8.6).

    · Multiply result of the subtraction by 2 (e.g., 8.6 * 2 = 17.2).

    · Add 50 to the result of the multiplication (e.g., 17.2 + 50 = 67.2).

    · % Success in the above example = 67.2%.

    Bard Difficulty Modifiers

    · Instrument

    · Reduce base difficulty by 5 (10%) when using an exceptional instrument.

    · Reduce base difficulty by 10 points (20%) when using an enchanted instrument of aligned type.

    · Increase base difficulty by 10 points (20%) when using an enchanted instrument of opposite aligned type.

    · Musicianship

    · If Musicianship is above 100, subtract 100 from your Musicianship skill and divide the result by 2. This is your Musicianship bonus.

    · Reduce base difficulty by your Musicianship bonus (e.g., 10 points for Musicianship of 120, 20%).

    · Skill

    · Reduce base difficulty by 5 points (10%) when performing Provocation.

    · Reduce base difficulty by 10 points (20%) when performing Discordance or Targeted Peacemaking.
