Holy Insight mapping

Holy Insight provides textual descriptions of the target's stats and abilities. The mapping to numbers is based on the Holy Insight priests' wiki data, although with some corrections as the data isn't entirely correct.

For extremely poor we normally assume unset or zero.

Weight and hit points formulae

Based on Hit Point Calculator, the formula for humans can be found below. It is quite probably the hit points part of this applies to all species; if we know their weight, we could probably calculate their hit points fairly precisely. Basic testing with small animals and pets suggests this might be true. Corpses weigh the same as live things, which can be confirmed by weighing (some) pets.

 weight = 45.55 + 2.65 * floor((constitution + 3 * strength) / 4)
 
 if (weight <= 32.5)
   factor = floor(20 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 40)
   factor = floor(65 + 18 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 47.5)
   factor = floor(145 + 16 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 55)
   factor = floor(240 + 14 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 62.5)
   factor = floor(350 + 12 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 70)
   factor = floor(475 + 10 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 77.5)
   factor = floor(615 + 8 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 85)
   factor = floor(770 + 6 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 92.5)
   factor = floor(940 + 4 * weight)
 elseif (weight <= 100)
   factor = floor(1125 + 2 * weight)
 else
   factor = 1325
 endif
 
 hitpoints = floor(factor * (5 * (constitution + 15) + 2 * health) / 350)
