Sil: Various Questions

Killed 49 raukar, +5 bonus, shouldn't this be +7? Or is there an upper bound? If there is (and bane is strong even with it), it is not explicit in manual or game.

You need 2^N kills to get a bonus of N. Since 2^5 = 32 < 49 < 64 = 2^6, a bonus of 5 is correct.

Oh, yes. Not N^2

To get +7, you'd need to kill 128. For +8, that would be 256...and so on.

Cruel blow and confusion mechanics

Cruel Blow: I wonder whether cruel blow might be an useful ability for a non-assassin, but subtlety build. I understand that cruel blow needs a 4x! check against will to succeed to confuse for ! rounds. So much is clear, but what does confusion do exactly - is confusing a 10-will creature even resulting in a serious amount of wrong direction or will it even when confused hit me most of the time? How big is the moral effect of cruel blow - remaining in control of the crowd seems important for this build - the -2 stacks for each cruel blow hit?
