I have the following research on shaping effects:

From this I've deduced:
 
*There's a 'pivot point', which seems to be 'sqrt(bonus) - 5.5'
 
*Dollops <= floor(pivot * 0.5) dollops is 'professional honey handler'
 
*floor(pivot * 0.5) < dollops <= floor(pivot * 0.75) is 'ease'
 
*floor(pivot * 0.75) < dollops <= floor(pivot * 0.95) is 'relative ease'
 
*floor(pivot * 0.95) < dollops <= floor(pivot * 1.05) results in no adverb.
 
*floor(pivot * 1.05) < dollops <= floor(pivot * 1.25) is 'slight difficulty'
 
*floor(pivot * 1.25) < dollops <= floor(pivot * 1.55) is 'difficulty'
 
*floor(pivot * 1.55) < dollops is 'severe difficulty'
 
 
At the moment I only have two data sets; the categorizations seem to fit pretty well, but I think more research might be needed to confirm the formula for the pivot point.
 
 
It's also not currently clear what the relationship between the categorizations and the bonus/penalty to throwing that results from them is - so more research is needed there.  --[[User:Chat|Chat]] 22:49, 3 September 2009 (UTC)
