All About Not-Cats II: Personality & Stats


Personality Traits

There are five different personality traits that influence how a not-cat behaves. These are not only used when the cat socializes, but also can provide boosts and bonuses for daily chores and adventuring as well.

Bravery
A not-cat's bravery shows how much strength they show in the face of scary or dangerous challenges. High bravery cats will rarely be intimidated by monsters and dark caves, while low bravery cats may be inclined to run away.

Benevolence
A not-cat's benevolence level shows how kind and selfless they are. Low benevolence cats are more focused on their own desires and may be more prone to getting into arguments, while high benevolence cats are more concerned with others and will show kindness at every opportunity.

Energy
A not-cat's energy level indicates their preference for active versus passive tasks and activities. High energy cats prefer to be running around, climbing, and exploring. They may even struggle to sit still and focus on things like crafts and art. On the other hand, low energy cats will struggle with active tasks like hunting, and will prefer to sit quietly with tasks that require more patience, such as reading and writing.

Extroversion
A not-cat's extroversion level shows how much they like to be social and interact with other cats. High extroversion cats are chatty, make friends easily, and like to be surrounded by the others in the village. Low extroversion cats can be shy, aloof, and often prefer to spend their time alone.

Dedication
A not-cat's dedication level shows how hard they work at what they are doing. A cat with a high dedication will get a bonus to most day jobs, whereas a cat with a low dedication may cause cats to receive penalties. Formalities aside, low dedication cats can sometimes make up for their lack of desire to do chores with other positive traits, such as social skills, and not all occupations require dedication at all.

You'll notice that personality traits are often classified as "High", "Low", or "Moderate" when mentioned for bonuses. High personality traits are 8 or above, low personality traits are 3 or below, and moderate personality traits are 4 to 7. Low traits are not necessarily bad things in most cases! Sometimes cats get bonuses for having lower traits. For example, there are some occupations where cats get a bonus for having a low energy level.


Archetypes

Every not cat is sorted into a personality 'archetype' which influences their general personality traits, as well as how they interact with each other and the world. Each archetype also comes with a color palette that flavors their profile page.

Stats

In addition to their personalities, each cat has a set of 7 stats that describe how talented they are in various areas. Stats range from 4 to 24 in the average adult cat. When new adult cats are created, the stat is determined by the equivalent of the sum of four 6-sided die. Stats are lower in earlier life stages, and can be raised with trinkets and ascension.

The seven stats are detailed below:

Strength
Strength represents a not-cat's physical might, whether in athletic feats, vicious physical attacks, or carrying heavy objects. Strength is used for the following day jobs: Miner, Blacksmith, Builder, Mason. It also determines how many dice the cat gets when making melee attacks in adventuring.

Agility
Agility represents a not-cat's speed, dexterity, and general acrobatic ability. It's useful for being fast and hard to catch, as well as for jumping around and bounding through the forest. Agility is used for the following day jobs: Hunter, Fisher, Bug Catcher. It also determines how many dice the cat gets when dodging attacks in adventuring.

Health
Health represents a not-cat's ability to heal and resist injury, disease, and more. Healthy cats recover faster and stronger. Health is not used for any day jobs, but cats with a higher health stat experience shorter negative stat conditions. It also determines how many hit points a cat has in adventuring.

Finesse
Finesse represents a not-cat's attention to detail and ability to perform small, intricate tasks. It's useful for craftsmanship, arts, and other such things. Finesse is used for the following day jobs: Clothier, Artist, Craftscat. It also determines how many dice the cat gets when making ranged attacks in adventuring.

Cleverness
Cleverness represents a not-cat's intelligence and general worldly knowledge. Clever cats learn more quickly and have better memories. Cleverness is used for the following day jobs: Herbalist, Apothecary, Scribe. It also determines whether or not cats get bonuses when taking support actions and using items in adventuring.

Perception
Perception represents a not-cat's skill at searching and noticing things. Cats who are perceptive are good at hearing, seeing, or otherwise sensing what is around them. Perception is used for the following day jobs: Gatherer, Gardener, Farmer, Flockherd, Baker. It is also used to determine turn order in adventuring.

Luck
Luck represents a not-cat's innate connection to the magic of the world. Cats with higher luck stats are better at wielding and discovering supernatural abilities. Luck is not used for any day jobs, but it determines how likely a cat is to discover its magical powers. It is also used to determine how many dice the cat gets when using magic in adventuring.

When cats use these stats, they are actually using the corresponding bonuses. On a stat cube, you will see two smaller numbers. A number of dice (for example, 3d6 or 2d6) and a general modifier (for example, +1 or -2).

The general modifier is applied when a cat performs their day job or makes a quick stat check, while the number of dice is for use in adventuring, especially during combat. In adventuring, a cat gets a number of successes equal to the number of 5s and 6s they roll on their allotted dice.

You can see all of the modifiers and dice broken down by stat number below:
