Default Attuned [5pt/level]

Attuned (5pt/level)

This general, well, Attunement gives +1 per level (max 6) to any mundane action that can be credibly argued to be in the service of the Superior granting Attuned. It does not give a similar bonus to Songs, resonances, or any other supernatural activities. Attuned can be bought after character creation, but mortals may not receive this Attunement unless they have been given a Force from a celestial.

It is possible to have Attuned from multiple Superiors, although not from both Archangels AND Demon Princes. Many Archangels will grant this Attunement as a reward to worthy angels serving different Words; Demon Princes are more likely to use Attuned as a way to steal promising demons away from their rivals. Also, significantly better behavior is expected from Servitors possessing Attuned when it comes to promoting their Superior’s Word.

Is this a GURPS IN or a regular IN advantage?

Regular IN. I'm trying to model it in GURPS IN at the moment, and it's making my head hurt. :)

In GURPS I think Higher Purpose works here.

Interesting...thanks. I'll think about this.

Yeah, I can see the GURPS math bringing on a headache.

I doubt it's the math so much as the flexibility. GURPS is a lot more fine-grained than IN, and so finding the value of "any mundane action in the service of the Superior" covers a lot of ground.

I agree that Higher Purpose would seem to be a good equivalent.
