    I’d really like to know how the Doom spell strength test works. It says “strength + 15” but I’m not sure what that means. Would investing in the necromancer’s strength increase the spell’s chance to hit?

    I've always thought it was the target's strength that is taken into calculation. So mirroring the logic used in the table-top version for similar test, the target gets +15 to their current strength (I don't think equipment strength is factored in, but could be wrong). Then a random number is generated. If that number is equal to or less than the strength +15, the target lives. If the number is greater, it dies.

    Ahh that would be revealing the mysteries of the game code (actually Shangular pretty much nailed it word for word from the design doc)
