Convoking bonus vs. number of stages

What's meant by "maximum" here is that trying to convince the trick it has more stages than the maximum will result in this message:

Sometrick tells you: I don't know about me, dear, but you surely can't handle all that.

This does not use any gp, unlike a normal failure.

(Only the "convince <trick> it has <number> stages" step was tested.)

With convoking bonus of:

  • 101: maximum of 3 stages
  • 134: maximum of 3 stages--may not be able to actually attain 3, but can attain 2 easily
  • 151: maximum of 3 stages--may not be able to actually attain 3, but can attain 2 easily
  • 184: maximum of 3 stages, and can attain 3 easily
  • 202: maximum of 3 stages
  • 215: maximum of 3 stages

Trick info per stage

I made a simple one easy stage trick.

You read the thaumometer:
The background magic level in this area appears to be normal.

Gp used was 37 + 4 = 40.

Through lots adding/removing of other spells and squints (takes 4 head space) I obtained a size for 1 easy stage of 2.

As expected for such low size it doesn't make any thaum when cast.

Holding a charged Klein bottles to get int bonuses allows you to increase your head space too which can be handy.

It didn't produce any thaums, do it must be doing floor(4 / 5) = 0.
