%VARIABLE := %VARIABLE + 400%

%VARIABLE := %VARIABLE x 4

I am now stumped. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't believe percentages are supported, but you can do multiplication and division for the same effect.

Using an x is not how you do multiplication.

If you read the article called Basics of Scripting, it will reveal to you...well you know. What the title says.

You cannot use percents or decimals in the system (as it rounds off) but can get the same results, using the proper math.

For example, a cursed sword does only 75% damage: %Damage := 2D6 * 100 / 133

Or Gain 50% more Hit Point: %HP := %HP * 15 / 10
