I bet they are doing the mutual fund thing. You get a number of shares, but here they are shares in a powers and skills. The value likely goes up and down on the whims of the developeers.

I have +10 to geek lore, today 1-point of geek lore is 1%, so I have +10%.

Tomorrow, after a patch, the developers think this is too weak so they make each point of geek lore +1.1%, so I wiould have +11%.

They do this in mutual funds because it is easy math. All you need to do is change the value of a unit (in say of going though all the shares and re-adding them up . . . in STOís case they do not need to change each power on an individual level).

Well, thatís my guess.
