What High Levels of Lore Represent

Keep in mind that Lore doesn’t max out at 5, it maxes out at 10. At least in pre 3e world. So you kind of need space for 5 more levels of “knows things not available to everyone.”

The way I work it is by orders of magnitude. A person with Lore 1 knows things only 1 in 10 people know. Lore 2 is one in a hundred. Lore 3 is one in a thousand. And so on. Specialties add to this as well.

So if you have Lore 10 Relevant specialty 3 you know things that only one in 10,000,000,000,000 people would be aware of.
