Overview[edit | edit source]
Fortitude is a measure of your resistance to the Weather, Torpidity, and Disease. A higher Fortitude increases your natural Hypothermic and Hyperthermic insulation, and lessens the effects that you receive from Hypothermia and Hyperthermia. It also gives you resistance to Torpidity-increasing effects such as consumption of Narcotic, hits from Tranquilizer Arrow or Slingshot, Scorpion stings and other Torpidity-inducing attacks from creatures.
Increasing[edit | edit source]
Each level point spent increases fortitude by 2. This in turn increases the hypothermal and hyperthermal insulation by 4, and at certain level it is increased by 5 (see table below). Bear in mind to resist hypothermic effects at -5 °C(23 °F), hypothermal insulation of at least 200 is required - so you will not be able to resist all weather effects using fortitude alone without adding an obscene amount of points to the skill.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Various Armors will also increase (or decrease) your Hypothermic and Hyperthermic insulation.
- Food dishes can be used to temporarily increase your resistance to extreme temperatures: Fria Curry gives Hypothermic insulation, and Calien Soup gives Hyperthermic insulation.
- Inside a building insulation is increased by 112 Hypothermic and 56 Hyperthermic. As of Scorched Earth stone and metal make higher temperatures more dangerous.
- While Fortitude reduces the Torpidity gained from various damage sources, it does not decrease the damage you receive.
