I have been reading Your Story and Our World, trying to figure certain things out. One of the things I am stumped over is how stats work in this system.
I am not sure if this is intentional or not, but when you look at the explanation behind supernatural powers it would seem that a regular mortal technically has the ability to exceed their explanation.
For example, Inhuman Strength gives +3 Might for lifting.
Lara Raith's sheet states that she has Inhuman Strength, but no Might skill.
This means, if I am reading this correctly, that she only gets a +3 to her might when she lifts something.
Cujo, a pure mortal, has a +3 in might built in as a skill. Based solely on stats, it would appear that the game has these two as equals in the might category when it comes to lifting.
This also would imply that based on stats alone, that in an average situation, a mortal with +5 in might would be capable of lifting more than a vampire (or any supernatural creature) that only has Inhuman Strength, but no skills vested in the might category.
My Question: Based purely on the stats provided, FATE points and aspects aside, and under regular circumstances, are Cujo and an average White Court Vampire with no skills vested in might, equal solely in the category of lifting an object?
This is obviously not about who would win in a fight, or who is harder to kill, I just want to know if from a technical stand point, before you factor in hypotheticals and or what characters could/might do, are they statistically equal in lifting.
