      So! I’ve got some maths for y’all. These are my interpretations while creating the NPC maker tool.

      Choose a base profile, add whatever templates, any increases to CR and IR are applied no matter how much of the template you actually utilize.

      For any adjustments after that:

      For every rank you increase or decrease in the Earth or Fire rings: +/- .5 to combat rank

      For raising or lowering Air or Water: +/- .5 to intrigue rank.

      For each rank in endurance and focus: +/- .25 to CR

      For each rank in composure and vigilance: +/- .25 to IR

      Each rank in Martial and Trade: +/- .5 CR

      Each rank in Artisan, Scholar, and Social: +/- .5 IR

      Every full rank in Honor: +/- .5 CR

      Every full rank in Status: +/- .5 IR

      Add +1 CR and +1 IR for every two additional Mahō spells added to the profile through templates or otherwise.

      Then if you have any ranks at .5, round up. Hope this helps us create more NPCs!
