Reference guide for various mechanics and rules. All of this should be available in-game, either now or later, but I think having an external reference is a good thing in any case.

Search Province: Mechanics and Success Chances

 
When searching a province, the following is processed for each character participating: 
 
The basic Search ability is calculated as per the table below. 
 
Then for each possible site that can be discovered the Search ability is calculated. This may be a different value than the basic Search ability, as some factors apply only to specific types of sites. 
 
A ‘Roll Table’ is populated with all these pairs of possible sites and specific values. If a site is discovered, it will be picked from this table, with the specific values indicating the relative chance of each site. 
 
For example if there are 2 sites: Site A with value 15, Site B with 5, then there will be a 75% chance that A is the one discovered, and 25% chance that B is the one discovered. 
 
Bonus when Searching in Province with numerous sites 
10. of the site-specific value is added to a running total. Once all sites are processed, if this sum exceeds the basic Search Ability, the basic Search Ability gets a bonus of: 
 
(total – basic) / square_root(total/search) 
 
Examples: 
Total is 30 and basic is 25, the bonus will be: 
(30 – 25) / square_root(30/25) = 5 / square_root(1.2) = 4.6 
 
In practice this bonus is rare and relatively insignificant 
 
Search Time Modifiers 
 
Less than 3 turns: 
The chance to discover a site is divided by (4 – search_time) 
 
More than 4 turns: 
Chance to discover is increased by square_root(search_time – 3) 
 
More than 8 turns: 
Chance to discover is increased by a factor 4, but not above 95% 
 
Chance to discover can never go below 5%. 
 
Search Roll 
A roll is made against the chance to discover, and the roll table of sites is used to pick a discovered site. 
 
Search Ability 
Base Search Ability: 25
